Wow–Michigan students read 10,000 books!

On our last show, we told you about the Michigan Reads program, where students could earn free Pistons tickets for every five books they read. The response has been overwhelming–kids across the state have been pouring through books! We’ve heard from students at every grade level in schools across Michigan. But the lucky reader who read the 10,000th book got a special prize. So who was it? Read all about it!

And now, we’ve got another way for the students in your life to read their way to winning.
This time it involves the Red Wings!
