“Get Caught Reading” with Free Posters

Launched in 1999 by the AAP and now managed by Every Child a Reader, Get Caught Reading provides posters of TV stars, famous athletes, authors, and beloved book characters reading a book.

The first new poster for 2019 features Olympic gold medalist and author Laurie Hernandez, and is available now for free, thanks to a sponsorship by KPMG, whose citizenship mission is to encourage lifelong learning through literacy.

Laurie Hernandez’s new book, She’s Got This, illustrated by Nina Mata, is a picture book about chasing your dreams and never giving up, and is being published October 9 by HarperCollins Children’s Books.

Ask a Youth Services Librarian for a free poster while supplies last!

Ernit strives to subscribe monetary values to actions, and it largely succeeds. Chore trackers are in abundant supply in both the iOS and Android app stores. But it's the customizable functions that set  Ernit apart from the other allowance apps. Parents set "tasks" for children to complete and children can in turn request chores. Once a task is completed, parents give virtual money to their child, or withdraw money from the child if a task isn't completed to satisfaction.  A list of preset tasks is provided and parents may also create their own.
