HOUSTON — Being able to read is critical to every child's future. Children who do not read on-level by the end of Grade 3, have only a 1 in 8 chance of ever catching up, and are four times more likely to drop out of school.
You can help us “Turn The Page” on Houston’s literacy crisis. KHOU 11 is partnering with Houston based non-profit Books Between Kids for the fourth year in a row to help at-risk children have books of their own.
We're also hosting LIVE Turn the Page Bedtime Stories every weeknight from June 3 to June 21 on our KHOU 11 Facebook page.
A KHOU 11 anchor, Houston community leader or local celebrity will take your children on a magical adventure by reading a different book each night.
Curl up with your kiddos and join us on weeknights at 7:30 p.m.
And post photos and videos of you reading to your kids using #KHOUReads.
