Homeschooling parents! Sign your kids up for the free Pizza Hut BOOK IT! program and they’ll be reading and enjoying free pizza in no time!

I am ALL for any incentives to encourage my kids to read. I’ve tried sticker charts, have offered a monetary “prize” for each book read, and have even offered new toys in exchange for reading books. For whatever reason, my ways of trying to get my kids to read just don’t seem to work as well as free pizza.

I mean, I get it. Pizza Hut pizza is delish. When I order Pizza Hut pizza for my family after a long week (read: long Monday), I swear everyone in our home cheers. My husband and I usually share a Hawaiian pizza because we’re #teampineappleonpizza and the boys will get bacon on their pizza. It’s certainly a treat in our home!

Now, when you sign your kids up for the free Pizza Hut BOOK IT! Program, you’re pretty much guaranteeing at least one pizza night (aka “Mom and Dad aren’t cooking tonight” night) a month in your home. After all, didn’t we all do our best to earn those free personal pan pizzas in the 90s? Our kids are no different.

Free Pizza Hut?! Yes, please!

For all the details, just visit the BOOK IT! website. Their FAQ section is also helpful, but I’ll share the basics below:
