The KUED Kids Adventure Pass with Abby, Liam, and Sandy

We’re a book-loving family, and every November we get a checkup and reset on our reading habits with the KUED Kids Reading Marathon. We print off the reading chart for the month and my kids (age 11, 9, and 5) track their reading minutes. My 5-year-old son is particularly motivated to read by the KUED Adventure Pass because it includes a trip to Hogle Zoo.

We loved having monthly adventures with the Adventure Pass in January, February, and March. Our spring break was in March and we particularly enjoyed visiting the Aviary and Zoo over spring break. What a wonderful program to motivate kids to read – and get us out into the community during the winter. Thanks, KUED!
