TODAY Show Launches Book Club for Kids

Because there can never be enough book clubs, the TODAY SHOW is launching a brand new one on April 27. “Al’s Book Club for Kids,” which will be hosted by weatherman Al Roker, will begin with the first of four books that kids can read throughout the summer. The book club coincides with the Scholastic Summer Reading BUZZ!(TM) Campaign to help get kids reading “Four or More” books to combat the summer slide.

“With so many amazing books out there for kids, and with so many of our viewers being parents, we are thrilled to offer a fun, interactive way to read with the kids in our audience all summer long,” said Jaclyn Levin, Senior Publishing Producer, NBC News.
