Great Kids Can Read
Purpose of the GKC Read Program
The GKC Read Program promotes reading by providing an annual Nominee List of quality books for students within the 2.8 - 4.8 reading range. Books on the GKC Read Nominee list are intended to introduce quality contemporary literature to students.
Process: Students who read or have had read to them, at least four (4) titles from the master list will vote for his/her favorite. Ballots will be prepared for school librarians to distribute and collect from participating classrooms in March. The author of the winning title will receive special recognition.
