With a longtime commitment to children’s literacy, Homewood Suites by Hilton created the Lewis the Duck books to help kids feel more comfortable while someone they love is away. The book series follows the adventures of Lewis the Duck and his family as they travel around the world and help others along the way. On their journeys they learn about different cultures while visiting world famous cities and monuments, and they learn about helping their own community.
Reading Is Fundamental created supplemental learning materials aligned with the Lewis the Duck books along with a custom page on its Literacy Central website, featuring the books with two titles available in Spanish and English. Each title is matched with complimentary literacy activities and educational reading resources to help create engaged readers. The books also include an e-book version to encourage kids and parents to take reading on the go. Parents, teachers, volunteers and literacy lovers can access the custom Homewood Suites collection on Literacy Central at RIF.org/HomewoodSuites.
