Bus Driver Keeps A Bucket of Books To Encourage Kids To Read

By Mark Pygas

In the age of Netflix and Fortnite, it can be difficult to convince kids to read a good book every now and then. But Julie Callison, a special education teacher and bus driver in Arkansas's Drew Central School District, has come up with a solution that seems to be working. 

The Arkansas Department of Education shared her solution to getting her kids to read on Facebook, in a post that has acquired over 4,000 shares and hundreds of comments. This year, Callison added a bucket of books to her bus so that the kids can pick a few books to read on their journey and has even set up a "special guest reader" program with older students.
