During their Raise a Reader campaign, News Corp will be encouraging all Australians to help 'raise a reader' with the Dr. Seuss Superbly Sensational Collection.
Let’s Read is proud to support the Raise a Reader campaign by helping to spread the word about the importance of sharing stories with children, and helping to distribute the Dr. Seuss books. Both Let's Read's partner organisations are involved: Our spokesperson Frank Oberklaid from Murdoch Childrens Research Institute is helping to raise awareness about the importance of early literacy, and News Corp will be donating 10,000 books to The Smith Family to distribute via their programs, including the Let’s Read program.
Everyone can grab a bargain Dr. Seuss book with purchases of News Corp papers during this campaign - there are 14 books to collect from next Sunday.
