Continuing their commitment to promoting literacy for all children, WHOOPI GOLDBERG and SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUBS have announced the launch of the "WHOOPI! We’re Reading! Sweepstakes" as part of the SCHOLASTIC BOOK CLUBS’ CLASSROOMSCARE program.
The actor, comedienne, author of WHOOPI’s Big Book of Manners and producer and host of the syndicated WAKE UP WITH WHOOPI! radio program is inviting classrooms from across the country to read 100 books for a chance to win 1,000 books for them to donate to the local charity or charities of their choice. One hundred winning classes will be chosen.
"Books rule! I love fairy tales and I love spooky stories," WHOOPI said. "Reading is a great way to spend time and learn all kinds of things, and now, with ClassroomsCare, it's a great way to give the gift of reading to others."
