Want your kids to earn free pizza for reading books? Pizza Hut has revived their BOOK IT! program and we are here for it! You know what this means, right? An entire summer of reading books AND eating pizza! Consider it a done deal.

If you were a kid growing up in the 90’s, the name Pizza Hut was pretty much synonymous to “reading.” We’d print out the book tally charts and read until that chart was filled. Then, we’d head over to our local Pizza Hut and devour our very own free pizza. One personal pan pizza that was mine, all mine, served still sizzling in that ridiculously hot dish, please and thank you!

Now, your kids can have a similar experience by participating in the relaunched Pizza Hut BOOK IT! Summer Reading program.

And the crowd cheers!

Pizza Hut's BOOK IT! Summer Reading Program for Kids is back! Even the most reluctant readers will read for pizza!

About the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! Summer Reading Program

Starting in June, kids ages 4-12 can earn a free one-topping personal pan pizza when they reach their monthly reading goal June through August. The incentive of a free pizza from Pizza Hut is enough to encourage pretty much kid to include more summer reading to their daily activities, right? I know that my kids are already excited to read more!

In the past, parents would have to manually write down their kids summer reading on a piece of paper for the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! program. Fortunately, that’s a thing of the past! No more losing the paper and worrying about getting the side eye when handing the waitress a paper with dirty fingerprints and who knows what.

Sidenote: if you’re ok with still manually writing down books the kids have read, you will totally want to check out how the kids can earn a FREE book from Barnes & Noble this summer, too!

Ready for your kids to earn free pizza just by reading this summer? The BOOK IT summer reading program is back and it's open to homeschool students, too!

Now, summer reading for the BOOK IT! program can be recorded digitally. Just sign your kids up through the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! website and you’ll be able to keep track of goals through their dashboard.

Not only will you be able to record summer reading digitally, but the Pizza Hut BOOK IT! website has loads of resources available for free! I’m talking bookmarks, reading journals, and even worksheets. Sweet! Even better, we’ve compiled 13 ways to get cheap or free books for kids, so this summer activity can be as budget-friendly as possible.

Who’s ready to enjoy some free pizza from Pizza Hut thanks to summer reading?! We are! If you want to take summer learning up another notch, you might be able to convince the kids to complete some quick daily National Day-themed writing prompts? It’s totally worth a try!

Until next time, stay safe and enjoy quality time with your families,
