Idita-Read Opens Today

New Reading Incentive for Kids

While the rest of the nation is being blanketed with snow, WorldWide IDEA is inviting families to experience their own wintry excitement in the Idita-Read, a reading adventure that mirrors the Alaskan Iditarod.  Idita-Read gives kids rich interactive maps, online race information, and easy book report options for all grade levels.  Once the race begins, readers simply count every minute read as one mile traveled on the Iditarod Trail and log in their racing progress.    Training camp opens today and the actual race is from March 5 through April 20.

Registration is free on Team Whiteout for all Today’s Mama fans through the Weekly Writer Club.  Use the code “Today’s Mama” in the application form.  It’s a great way to encourage kids to start their own reading blizzard in San Diego!
