Updated: Keep Reading! - FREE Malala Book Until 12 Noon

We have many resources for you to keep reading and practicing reading skills while you are at home! Reading is one of the best things you can do to entertain yourself, enrich your life, and stem learning loss.

TUESDAY ONLY UNTIL NOON: For today only, Malala is offering a free download of her book "I Am Malala: Young Readers Edition" to readers in the US and Canada until 12 pm EST. As she wrote on Twitter, "I hope this helps with your time at home. Happy reading!"

To download a free e-copy -- which we recommend for ages 10 and up -- on Amazon, visit https://amzn.to/2Jco7bG in the US.
