Coming to a Screen Near You
We changed our look last fall. Now we’re onto something even bigger. And you’re a key part of it all.

Coming to a Screen Near You


Through the release of our new public service announcement (PSA) and RIF song, we’ll be calling on passionate supporters like you to help spur a movement for a literate America. Our PSA will showcase for the first time America’s most beloved book characters – Pinocchio, Curious George, Madeline and Babar, to name a few – coming together for the love of reading. You’ll be among the first to see the new PSA and invited to join the troops. Stay tuned, coming this spring!

Kicking off National Reading Month, actress Kate Beckinsale teamed up with “The Nestlé Share the Joy of Reading Program” for a very special read-aloud at The Grove in Los Angeles.

Star Power - Kate Beckinsale


"As a mom and a big reader, I am excited to be participating in 'The Nestlé Share the Joy of Reading Program' to benefit RIF," said Kate Beckinsale, who described reading as an incredibly big part of her childhood.

Spring Ahead

Spring Ahead
Bugs. Dirt. Daisies. Welcome spring with the kids in your life by creating your own nature journals. It’s as easy as taking a walk outside, collecting flower petals, and grabbing glue, paper and a pen. Have them write and read to you about their experiences outside. Spring into reading with more cool activities.
