I went searching for more programs, and found several. I know there are other stores who do these types of reading programs, so I will add more to this post as I locate them or the store releases it.
- Summer Break with Book it! is sponsored by Pizza Hut. Your child gets entered into a contest to win a prize pack when they read five books. There are also a lot of fun activities and some book suggestion lists.
- Looks like this is only available in New England, but kids will get to watch free movies if they read books. Through National Amusements Theaters, they will have a free movie every Wednesday if you bring a book report with you.
- I already talked about the Borders Double Dog Dare program in another post, but I want to collect all the programs in one place. Just have your child read 10 books and fill out the form, then they get a free one.
- Barnes and Noble also has a summer reading program called Imagination Destination. Kids can read 8 books and write them in the book journal, then turn it in for a free book. Read the details and print the journal HERE.
- Scholastic had a great page last year with a ton of resources. This year, they have Keep Kids Reading All Summer Long, with book lists by age and a lot of great articles for parents and teachers. This one would award schools whose students have the most minutes of reading.
- Half Price Books has the Feed Your Brain program.
- Pottery Barn Kids has their own program, with a reading list of childrens' books that have won awards. Get a free book if you complete either of the two lists.
I will keep looking for more programs, but please let me know if you find something.
