In a quest to promote literacy, kids sailing across all 26 Carnival cruise ships have read a total of 213 million words as part of Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Random House Children’s Books Dr. Seuss’s Word Challenge.

213 Words Read!

The campaign has actually gone over the target of 100 million Dr. Seuss words to read. The huge accomplishment has been thanks to many activities and events on Carnival cruise ships this Summer.

Carnival Triumph held one of the book reading events with New Orleans Saints tight end Ben Watson. There have been tons of readings with different guest readers and kids not just cruising on Carnival but also from charities like the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

Caroline Lombardi, director of youth programming for Carnival Cruise Line, said:

“Carnival Cruise Line is the leader in family cruising carrying more than 800,000 kids a year and we’re very proud to be the Official Seagoing Partner of Dr. Seuss’s Word Challenge which serves to reinforce the importance of reading – even on vacation – in a fun and creative way.”

it’s been very impressive how Dr. Seuss has been keeping track of the word count. Kids onboard have been encouraged through the months of June and July to read their books and then log their progress with a word tracker at their official site.
