The L.A. Kings Royal Readers is a program that is to be held at individual schools for the duration of 10 weeks. It is designed to encourage students to read by awarding prizes such as Kings game tickets and promotional items to those who have read the most books. Students will be tested by several different methods, such as illustrating a favorite character or writing a summary, depending on their grade level. Bailey will also be visiting the school weekly to provide encouragement. With this program, the Kings hope to show children that reading is not only an essential part of learning, but it can also be fun and a rewarding experience.
