Tim Tebow will channel his passion for winning on the football field to help Pizza Hut and the BOOK IT! Reading Program motivate children to read more and develop a lifelong love of reading.
On Feb. 15, 2012, Tim (pictured above) will host the fifth America’s Biggest Storytime event, where he will read his favorite childhood book – Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss – to youngsters across the globe via the web.
As a “thank you” for Tim’s participation, BOOK IT! will make a donation to the Tim Tebow Foundation, which is dedicated to bringing faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.
Pizza Hut and BOOK IT! established the America’s Biggest Storytime event in 2007 to feed the need for reading traditions in today’s households. The 2011 event drew more than 500,000 viewers, according to Pizza Hut.
The link to view Tim’s America’s Biggest Storytime reading on Feb. 15 will be released in January. More information about the BOOK IT! Program can be found at bookitprogram.com.
In 1985, Pizza Hut established the BOOK IT! National Reading Incentive Program to motivate children to read more and help them develop a lifelong love of reading. BOOK IT! is a six-month program for students in kindergarten through sixth grade.
