The R.E.D. Zone Give Me 20 Reading Challenge

To encourage early readers, each spring and fall we offer the Give Me 20 Challenge to our teachers and parents. The goal of the challenge is to build reading-readiness skills and develop an at-home reading routine over an eight-week period. The challenge is open to anyone who has a preschooler-it can be done individually or in the classroom-no restrictions.

Fall Challenge

Dates: October 15-December 7, 2018

Celebrate the season with reading with four favorites from HarperCollins Children's Books for our Give Me 20 Challenge.

Read Five Little Pumpkins Came Back by Dan Yaccarino, In the Middle of Fall by Kevin Henkes, Just a Special Thanksgiving by Mercer Mayer and Making a Friend by Tammi Sauer over the eight weeks of the challenge.

The goal of the challenge is to read to your class or child(ren) twenty minutes a day, five days a week during the eight-week challenge. Complete the challenge, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win one of fifty prize packs that include copies of the featured books and a Pizza Hut gift card. Official Rules.


Download and print these free activities to help you reinforce story concepts, enhance parent communications, monitor reading goals, celebrate completion and much more. Others will be available as the challenge progresses.
