R.L. Stine Encourages Kids to Read

By Maryann Yin 

R.L. Stine wants to encourage all children to “Power Up & Read!” In the video embedded above, Stine talks about his love of comic books and Ray Bradbury novels.

Stine signed up as one of thirteen authors to write an original short story for Scholastic’s Summer Reading Challenge program. The organizers behind this venture hope to break the record of 304,749,681 minutes (spent reading) that was set last summer.
