I have been delighted to see several places over the past weeks offering free reading programs for kids. The way they work is you log your books or amount of time reading every day, and in return you receive a free book at the end of the program.
Here is a wrap up of the places I have found!
Barnes and Noble– Read 8 books and receive a free book from a specific list
Phoenix Library – Log your reading every day, each minute is a point- 500 points – a free book!
Changing Hands Book Store This is year round. Points are earned from reading books and attending special events in store (Phoenix Area)
Half Priced Books Reading 15 minutes a day each month during the program earns reader points towards a free book
Scholastic Summer Reading Program Readers log minutes and get points towards prizes
Pizza Hut Book-it Program Free items earned- not sure the details- launches 6/22
TD Bank This is for k-5 only- read 10 books and take the form to a TD Bank and get a free $10 account.
There are so many more- I will keep you updated as I find them. I love encouraging reading in my house, and free books are a great way to motivate kids to stay active on summer break!
