Read Across Oklahoma, the beloved preschool and early-grade literacy event, was held Tuesday, April 9, 2024, at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden. Attendees received over 1,500 free children's books!

If you missed the event, you can still join in the fun with virtual activities! Your students and young readers will enjoy watching the special Read Across Oklahoma video featuring author/illustrator Kylan Mogg. Join him as he reads his book, The Forgetful Elephant. The video also introduces us to some of the Oklahoma City Zoo animals and their habitats. Thanks to our community partners, there are even more fun animal-related books shared with you, too. Check it out below!

Read Across Oklahoma is part of the statewide My First Library program coordinated by ODL, an early literacy initiative that helps develop literacy skills and promotes family reading. During a regular school year, the program distributes 1,900 books each month to early learning classrooms.
