Each month, children from across the world read thousands of books on Highlights Library. They are intrigued, inspired and delighted by the stories in Highlights Library. This past year, we saw children go above and beyond their reading goals, some reading over 1,500 books! These avid readers amaze us, and we are eager to congratulate them on their achievements.
Introducing the Highlights Library Reading Champs! A Reading Champ is someone who loves to read and is among the top Highlights Library readers in the world. These children will be featured in a new series called Highlights Library Reading Champs, and their submissions will be posted to our News page and YouTube page.
This month, with the help of our partner, Stanford House, we were able to virtually meet the Reading Champs in Hong Kong. In the videos below, Marcus Chang, Interactive Learning Instructor, invites each Reading Champ to share their love of reading. Read a bit about each Reading Champ below, then the links to watch and listen to them share their favorite parts of Highlights Library!
