If there’s anything that’ll encourage my kids to read, it’s the opportunity to earn things for free. The Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Program is back and we are so excited!
Whether you have reluctant readers or your kids can’t wait to get their hands on a new book, summer programs are great to have available for a number of reasons. They can help with the “summer slump” and aid in retaining (or enhancing) skills gained in the previous school year and they’re especially awesome for kids who love a challenge and “will work” for incentives. Whether incentives be free pizza, free books, or even a special family outing, I am ALL FOR programs that encourage kids to read!
Getting your kids involved with the Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Program is super easy! First, though, if your kids are going to be participating in any sort of summer reading program (or, really, reading AT ALL), they’re going to need some books, right? Whether you’re on a budget or not, getting a deal is always nice, so be sure to check out these awesome ways to get free (or cheap) books for kids!
