Encouraging Summer Reading

My kids are excited about a couple of reading programs this summer.  

1st -- Library Summer Reading program.  I'm sure all Libraries have some program that encourages reading.  We get coupons, and this is for even the adults, each week if we read so many hours.  It's so great.  At the end of the summer there is a fun party.  My kids look forward to it every year.  

2nd --I've had several e-mails about the the Borders Books.  Here is the link to the form:

After your child reads 10 books - they get a FREE book from Borders! On the bottom of the form there is specific books that you child can choose from.  This is for children 12 and under.  Most of the books are chapter books but hey it's a free book to work towards!

3rd --The Read and Win Program
For Children 6-12 years old.  Deadline is July 22nd.  Read 10 books and receive a free ticket to the Utah State Fair in SLC.  For a form you can e-mail Jamie at jamie@utahstatefair.com   The state fair is Sept. 9-19.

Any other ideas?  I would love them in the comments!

Happy Reading!


  1. We got some stuff sent home for the Governor Herbert's Reading Challenge. I think Sandra did it last year and ended up getting a bunch of coupons for kids meals all over the valley, so we are going to try it! I'm sure you could just google it to get more info. I'll let you know if I come up with any others. =)

  2. I thought the Boarders book things was such a fun idea, the kids came home with it at the end of school. I do the library program too. Also our school does a reading challenge and the kid who reads the most wins a bike.


I appreciate your comments!
