Raising Readers: Summer

June 3 - August 6




WSKG's Raising Readers is part of a national effort that uses the power of public media to help children ages 2 to 8 improve their literacy skills.

Join us for 2013 Raising Readers: Summer, a multi-platform event designed to celebrate learning all summer long.  Raising Readers: Summer includes 10 weeks of special on-air programming, online activities for kids and parents, a social media campaign and events right here in the Southern Tier!

Visit us at a Raising Readers event as we partner with area libraries to celebrate literacy!


  • Watch PBS KIDS shows on WSKG TV every weekday!
  • Play free, educational, literacy-rich games at PBS KIDS!
  • Check out our Raising Readers Pinterest board for great ideas on encouraging summer literacy!
  • Visit PBS Parents often to provide your family with fun, educational activities that explore reading, writing and language!

Tell us your summer reading success stories by posting updates to our Facebook page!
Send us a note & photo of your family celebrating reading this summer!  

Your local library is an amazing resource where you can celebrate family learning all summer long!
