Purpose of the GKC Read Program
The GKC Read Program promotes reading by providing an annual Nominee List of quality books for students within the 2.8 - 4.8 reading range. Books on the GKC Read Nominee list are intended to introduce quality contemporary literature to students.
Students who read or have had read to them, at least four (4) titles from the master list will vote for his/her favorite. Ballots will be prepared for school librarians to distribute and collect from participating classrooms in March. The author of the winning title will receive special recognition.
