As a simple means of introducing children of all ages to the ideals of leadership, each month Read To Lead will feature a leader from the past or present whom children find interesting and are eager to read and learn about.

Above all, Read To Lead’s many facets and avenues for participation help kids understand that reading isn’t at all about spinach. It’s all about fun.
January’s leader of the Month: Jack Black
We’ve chosen Jack Black as this month’s leader of the month. We’d like to thank Jack for supporting literacy organizations such as Milk + Bookies. Jack took time out of his busy schedule to be a part of their annual Story Time Celebration and read a story to the children and even brought his own kids to join in on the fun.
Milk + BookiesTM is a nationwide charitable organization that inspires children to give back, using books as its currency.
Mr. Black also lent his vocal talents to help bring together some of our most beloved literary characters to rally people behind the Book People Unite movement and help get books in the hands of kids who need them the most. Watch the video here.See Previous Leader Spotlights >
