Summer Reading Programs

Don't forget to sign up your kids and possibly yourself for your local summer reading programs at your local library.    I signed up for an adult reading program (at my local library) and each week I submit what books I finished.   I recently won a family canoe trip!  It pays to read!!!

Scholastic Summer Challenge

Here's how you can get involved:

Help your kids sign-up at www.scholastic.com/summer

Read, log minutes and possibly earn rewards!


Calling all kids between Kindergarten – 8th grade, sign up for the Sylvan Book Adventure Club! Whenever your kids read and finish a book found here, they can take an online quiz and earn points to redeem for prizes!

Quizzes aren't too hard and give around 200 points (if all questions are answered correctly). Then let the kids save their points for a prize from the Prize Library!


Pizza Huts's Spark your Greatness Summer Reading Challenge

When children read throughout the summer, they win big! For sharing their reading minutes with the Wimpy Kid gang, they receive daily rewards. Additionally, children who read 5 books by August 15 have a chance to win awesome BOOK IT! prizes.



Currently Barnes and Noble is the only one available.  Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program: FREE Book for you kids in grades 1st-6th
