Way back in December (doesn’t that seem like a long time ago?) we presented a new Advent Calendar to our readers. This Advent Calendar gave a daily gift to everyone who opened it by counting down to the 12 Days of Christmas with a story each day. The calendar was a hit with parents who told us that they really appreciated the convenience of clicking the link and finding a new holiday-themed story to share with their kids every day. After the holidays were over, we packed up our Advent Calendar and, like holiday decorations everywhere, put it away until next year.
Then someone had a great idea. How about we reuse our Calendar to celebrate National Reading Month by providing a story a day for the entire month of March? And so that’s what we did. Throughout the month of March, you can check out our Reading Calendar every day for a new story or article from one of our magazines. You’ll find fiction and nonfiction, stories for little kids and stories for tweens, articles about topics ranging from history to science, and so much more.
So be sure to check out our National Reading Month calendar throughout the entire month of March. There will even be special discounts on Cricket Media magazines for you and toward the end of the month, a preview of our new Tech in Check initiative, which you will not want to miss.
Enjoy and keep reading. As Dr. Seuss said, ““The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
