Summer Reading Programs

I wanted to make sure we were involved in all the local reading programs!     Here are the ones I found.   We don't have a Pottery Barn, but maybe you do!

When you get to the website, download the summer reading form. As your child reads books over the summer, simply fill in the titles on the form. When your child has read 10 books, take the form to a Borders or Waldenbooks store and choose a free book from the selection offered including, Ramona the Brave by Beverly Cleary, Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown, and The River by Gary Paulsen. No purchase is necessary to participate. The form must be completed and turned in by August 26, 2010.

Kids read 8 books and get 1 free. B&N also offers free, downloadable Parent and Educator "Activity Kits" to enhance learning through books. Get all of the details at the website.

Kids of all ages who attend Pottery Barn Story Times (held on Tuesdays in the stores), will receive a Book Club card on their first visit and a special gift after attending five story times

Scholastic has a free online summer reading club for children that began on April 30, 2010. Kids 8 and up can go online and read to help set a "World Record."

"Kids who don't read over the summer can lose as much as one to three months of learning."   So true!    Pizza Hut offers this "Book It" summer reading program.   Check it out!
