read Aloud Competition Launched

| No Comments
HarperCollins Children's books is launching a competition for readers of all ages to recite their favourite rhyme rattling verse from Dr. Seuss.
In a new initiative to build confidence in beginning readers and encourage learning and imagination across all age groups, the 'Read Aloud' competition invites readers from all over the world to bring to life some of the zaniest characters in children's
literature. Participants are asked to film themselves reciting an extract from their favourite Dr. Seuss book in true Seuss-fashion - imaginative, creative and entirely unique.
The competition will be hosted online at www.seussreadaloud.com where participants can chose from one in five Dr. Seuss books to read from, including Fox in Socks and the classic The Cat in the Hat. Visitors to the site will also be able to watch sample videos, download extracts from their favourite Seuss stories, and print-out props to use creatively in their videos.
Videos will be put to public vote and from those the Dr. Seuss Grand Judging Panel will select one grand-prize winner who will win an extraordinary family vacation to Universal Orlando® Resort - where they will be able to see their favourite Dr. Seuss characters come to life at Seuss Landing™! Other winners will receive an array of Seuss prizes, including original prints from Chase Art, stovepipe hats, plush toys and carry-all bags.
The competition closes on 31st October 2010. For full competition details, terms and conditions or to get voting, visit www.seussreadaloud.com.
