Let’s dive right into the question on the tip of your tongue: what one earth is Book Bonus?
It’s the online readathon run by Dymocks Charities for NSW students.
Now on to the nitty gritty…
This is what you really need to know: Book Bonus is going to help you to get your kids reading, get their competitive spirit out and best of all, get them helping their schools and schools in need, and realising the importance of reading.
I know, I know, it’s a whole heap of things but it comes down to this:
- Sign your kid up to read as many books as possible through the length of the campaign to 7 September 2018. This gives them a chance to win books for themselves because Book Bonus works with the NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge
- Get their school involved and get it signed up!
All kids then get to be as cute as possible getting everyone they know and you know to sponsor them and their reading goals until September.
What happens at the end of the challenge?
Dymocks Charities is going to match the total total raised by each student, plus a bonus 25% to go towards new books of choice from an extensive list. So, for every $1 raised that’s $1.25 worth of new books for your school.
Dymocks Children’s Charities will also award an additional 25% of the amount raised to schools in need so they can also select new books for their students.
So, get your kids reading!!
Book Bonus runs from 5 March 2018 to 7 September 2018.
