Bookit

Pizza Hut is a sponsor of the BOOK IT! reading program. The BOOK IT! program is a reading incentive program for children in grades K through six. Here's how the program works:

BOOK IT! motivates children to read by rewarding their reading accomplishments with praise, recognition and pizza. The program is simple for the teacher to use, flexible because goals match reading ability, and fun because achieving a goal is a great reason to celebrate! BOOK IT! was created in 1985 and currently reaches over 14 million students in 38,000 elementary schools annually.

Simple
BOOK IT! runs every school year from October through March. The teacher sets a reading goal for each child in the class. A tracking chart and reproducibles are included to make it that much easier. And, BOOK IT! now offers a free online Minute Tracker! As soon as a child meets the monthly reading goal, the teacher gives him or her a Reading Award Certificate.

Flexible
BOOK IT! goals are based on reading ability. Number of books, number of pages, or number of minutes - they all work. BOOK IT! can also be used with the reading curriculum or as support for comprehension or intervention programs. For children not reading independently, the goal can be set where a parent or others read to the child.

Fun
Pizza Hut is proud of all BOOK IT! readers! The restaurant manager and team congratulate all the BOOK IT! children for meeting their monthly reading goal and reward them with a free, one-topping Personal Pan Pizza and the new Passport to Reading and sticker on their first visit. On each subsequent visit, the BOOK IT! child will receive another sticker for their Passport to Reading, another Personal Pan Pizza, and more kudos!

Best of all, BOOK IT! materials are free to schools! Click here for enrollment and eligibility information.

Call 1-800-4-BOOKIT (1-800-426-6548)
or visit website www.bookitprogram.com

*All program materials are free. No purchase is required at the restaurant and the pizza can be taken to go. Student must be present when redeeming their free, one-topping Personal Pan Pizza award.
