NORFOLK, Va. - Ahead of National Reading Day, the News 3 anchors invite you to take part in a special read-along right from the comfort of your home.

News 3 and our parent company, E.W. Scripps, are committed to the importance of childhood literacy.

The Scripps Howard Foundation’s “If You Give a Child a Book ...” campaign asks our employees and viewers to donate and put books into the hands of local kids.

This year, we're proud to share that 6,300 books are making their way into the hands of kids across Coastal Virginia through our partnership with REACH, Inc.

To celebrate reading, we're inviting families throughout the region to take part in a virtual read-along.

With permission from publisher Scholastic and author Peter H. Reynolds, the News 3 anchors have recorded a special reading of the book Say Something.

Grab the kids, watch the video in the player above, and celebrate reading with News 3!
