Ed Word the Bookworm

Hello there, young reader!

I’m Ed Word the Bookworm and I’m CapEd’s Reading Ambassador!
What does it mean to be a reading ambassador? It means I get to travel around, visiting kids and encouraging them to read. Reading is fun and helps our minds grow!

  Read with me all summer!
Keep track of the minutes you read each day during your summer vacation.
The top 5 schools with the most number of minutes read will get to see the CapEd Read to Rise balloon and meet me in person! Learn more about our summer reading program.
