This booklet presents suggestions for things people can do to help meet the America Reads Challenge of having all children read well and independently by the end of third grade. One of the ways to meet this challenge is through the research-based community reading initiative, called READ*WRITE*NOW!, which encourages students to read and write at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week. The introduction discusses how to start an after-school, weekend, or summer literacy program. The booklet then presents simple things that families, child care providers, schools, librarians, grandparents, seniors, and concerned citizens, community, cultural, and religious organizations, universities, employers, and the media can do to help. Contains a list of seven America Reads Challenge materials and addresses of 18 public and private organizations that are sources of literacy information. (RS)
