There are a million ways to teach a kid how to fall in love with reading. One free resource is Traveling Stories, a mobile literacy program that provides one-on-one reading support and motivational incentives to kids. For every book a kid reads, they earn a Book Buck, which can be redeemed for prizes. This unique program motivates kids and teaches them money management skills.
