Scholastic and the National Urban League come together with Myles and Sandra Pinkney to inspire African-American children to realize their dreams and achieve their goals through reading.

In a chair
turning pages
sitting in the cockpit
flying high in the sky

Through reading, children can be inspired to become almost anything: pilot, teacher, firefighter, doctor, chef, astronaut. READ AND RISE relays this message through vivid photographs and poetic words that encourage children to READ AND RISE.
