Studies show reading at home directly correlates to children's success at school. Children who are read to frequently are more likely to recognize letters of the alphabet, count to 20 or higher, write their own names, read or pretend to read.

One Texas principal wants to make sure all students get a bedtime story.

Every Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., Texas principal Belinda George changes into her pajamas and reads a children's book live on her school's Facebook page.

George, a principal at Homer Drive Elementary in Beaumont, Texas, calls it "Tucked-in Tuesdays" and said her students love it, and the parents do, too — often the students and the parents will watch the reading together.

According to the Washington Post, 94 percent of George's students come from economically disadvantaged homes, and many students at the school have not placed high on literacy tests. However, she says she's already seen growth since the started the readings in December. Students who watch the live reading are eligible to take quizzes on the books afterward through the Accelerated Reader program, which awards points to students who take quizzes on the books they've read.
