Read and Rise
I was asked to do this piece for Scholastic's Read and Rise Magazine.
This was a the cover for the parent guide. In this guide was information about
what books your child should be reading and what was good for what age group
and other very important information to help parents get their kids reading.
Read and Rise was a publication that was given out to innercity kids who
didn't get lots of books to take home. The magazine was a beautiful
one with lots of stories and fabulous illustrations. I loved that fact that
it was given away for free to families. Sadly Scholastic cut this magazine this year.
No more Read and Rise. I hope that one day they will bring it back. It's so sad that
a great program like this had to be cut.
