    (PRWEB) August 10, 2004 -- Usborne Books and www.yourkidsbookstore.com offer schools an exceptional read-a-thon program called "Reach for the Stars!!" Schools across the country are taking advantage of this unique program to raise free books and/or cash. Nadette Waligore, of Isnati, MN, says, "Our first 'Reach for the Stars!!' event raised $10,281 in pledges - with 192 students participating! So, books worth $6,169 were given to the library, and books worth $5,140 were given back to the participants! It didn't cost the school a dime, and the students are reading! Now that's a WIN-WIN situation!"
