Summer Reading Program Round-Up!

(My kids reading together last summer)

Summer is upon us!
It’s hard to get kids to keep the reading momentum they gained from the school year going through the summer.   If you’re having trouble getting your kids to stay pumped about reading, or if you’re just looking for a way to reward them, here is a roundup of local Summer Reading Programs for you!!  Plus, you'll end up with some fun freebies (Books, restaurant coupons, game tokens, etc...) to help you break up the summer doldrums - Cheaply.


2010 Summer Library Reading Program

The details aren't posted online yet, but this is the gist, taken from last year's program:

  • Read a minimum of 10 books on any subject on your reading level and return your logbook on or before July 18, 2009. Pre-readers may participate by listening to at least 10 stories.
  • Our library gives out prize bags full of local restaurant coupons, passes to the Creative Discovery Museum, and small toys/treats!


Once the kids have that reading log filled out, download this one from the Barnes & Noble site to participate in their summer reading program and get a FREE BOOK at the end!!

Here’s How It Works:

1. Kids read any eight (8) books of their own choosing.
2. Kids write about their favorite part using the Summer Reading Journal.
3. Children bring their completed Reading Journal to a Barnes & Noble store between May 25th & September 6th, 2010.
4. They'll get a coupon for a FREE book! They choose from a list of exceptional paperback titles.*


Borders "Double-Dog Dare"

1) For kids 12 and under

2) Read 10 books & list them on THIS form

3) Bring complete form to Borders/Waldenbooks by 8/26 to get 1 of the selected titles FREE!


Looking for a fun way to reward your kids for their accomplishments? Download and print free reward calendars to help your kids develop in areas that are some of the most common challenges of parenting.
