Motivate Your Kids To Read with these
2019 FREE Summer Reading Programs!

Keeping kids’ bodies and minds active on summer break are equally important. That’s where summer reading programs come in and for FREE is even better!

The three-month summer vacation can make a mind turn to mush. It’s surprising to learn that kids can lose up to 22% of skills when they do not read during the summer!  That is a staggering, unacceptable percentage when we can do something about it!

Here are few FREE programs to help keep your kids motivated to read!

FREE Book from Barnes & Noble

Kids in First through Sixth Grades can read any eight books and record them in the Barnes & Noble FREE Book Reading Journal. Then just bring the completed log to your Barnes & Noble store location between Aug. 1st to Aug. 31st., 2019 for a FREE book!

The FREE Books are listed on the reading journal/log by grade.
