Join Story Monsters Ink's campaign to promote literacy at home and in the classroom!


It is time to go back to school and we want to remind parents, caregivers, and family members to encourage kids to read daily! Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report: 6th Edition reports that only 32% of children read for fun 5-7 days a week and only 24% read for fun less than one day a week. 

Let's change that statistic! Join Story Monster's campaign to get kids #caughtreading — It's an easy and a fun way to promote literacy!

  1. Use the hashtag #caughtreading and post a photo of your child(ren) reading. Make sure you tag Story Monsters (@storymonsters) and we will share on our social media pages!  
  2. Send us a short video of your childr(ren) reading in the living room, in the car, on the beach … wherever you “catch” them reading! Video submissions must be accompanied by a signed release form. We'll post the video on our YouTube channel and social media pages.

SUBSCRIBE to the Story Monsters Ink channel on YouTube!


Send your #caughtreading photos to Cristy Bertini and we might publish them in an upcoming issue of Story Monsters Ink!
