We enjoy spending our storytimes together! The Wizards Reading Zone is the perfect place to expand kids’ love for reading. Use our zone to make storytime special by browsing book titles, participating in reading challenges, or even listening to your favorite Wizards player narrate books. Our reading zone is a place to make reading fun by encouraging children to read outside of the classroom. So, whether you are reading to a child or your child is reading to you, we have something for readers of all ages.
Dive into our Wizards Reading Zone to fuel your kid’s reading imagination!
Make reading at home fun each month! Some parents are familiar with a small selection of classic book titles but may not be sure what titles to recommend for their children to read outside of the classroom. We wanted to select a Book of the Month that our entire Wizards community can read together.
In partnership with DC Public Library, Prince George's County Memorial Library System and Alexandria Library, the Wizards will highlight books for children in various age groups to read. Each month the library systems will select one book for readers grades K-2, one book for readers grades 3-5, and one book for readers grades 6-8 to explore. These books will be great for kids to read alone or for families to read together. Once your kids finish the book, let us know what you thought. Share your thoughts with us on social media @JrWizards and use hashtag #WizardsBookoftheMonth!

Did you know, finding just 20 minutes a day to read can strengthen vocabulary and elevate literacy? Introducing a variety of options in your kids’ book selection can help keep their attention and make reading exciting.
If kids associate reading with fun, reading will not be seen as a chore. Explore the avenues of adventure, imagination and creativity within the pages of each book. Parents, start encouraging reading at a young age so it becomes an activity your kids love to do when they are older.
Sit back and relax as your favorite Wizards players read you a book.
