The New Worlds Reading Initiative is Florida’s free at-home literacy program for VPK students who are not making age-appropriate progress according to FAST results and K-5 students in public and charter schools who are not yet reading on grade level. Each month, eligible kids receive a free book tailored to their interests with resources and activities for caregivers and children to engage with together to bolster literacy skills, build reading confidence, and foster a lifelong love of reading. The UF Lastinger Center for Learning administers the program and selected Scholastic as a partner. Books are selected in collaboration with the Florida Department of Education, and are available in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole, and braille. For more information, visit newworldsreading.com.
