Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Our schools encourage kids to read every day, but what happens when a child doesn't own a book? Some kids have no way to get to the library to borrow books either. How are these kids supposed to develop a great reading habit? Hopelink of Southern Nevada is making Las Vegas a better place to live through its Breakfast Bookworm program.
Hopelink offers the program at eight different Clark County schools. They chose the schools with struggling literacy scores. Every child who comes gets a free book or two and free breakfast. Siblings are invited too! The only catch? They have to bring a parent.
