Join the Tri-Valley Herald for their 2008 Book Buck$ Family Reading Program. This award-winning family newspaper literacy program gets kids into a daily reading habit while rewarding them with Book Buck$ at the end of the week.

Reading Pays Off
From February 4-8, 2008 reading will pay off for children participating in the 2008 Book Buck$ NewsLaunch program. This year, more than 11,000 Valley students, siblings and their parents will be propelled into The Reading System. This not-so-distant space cluster consists of The Math Planet, The Geography Planet, The Language Planet, and The History Planet. Each evening, students will read through the Herald with their family and complete assignments to earn their Book Buck$. At the end of the week, all young participants will be rewarded with Book Buck$ they can spend thanks to the generosity of local merchants and benefactors. 

There are two ways Hacienda affiliates can participate in this award-winning program. Sponsorships are welcome to help bring the program to local schools or you can donate a prize for the participants to "buy" with their buck$. A number of recognition opportunities are available to event supporters.
