Summer Reading Programs = Free Books

My boys enjoy reading so I try to always enroll them in Summer Reading Programs.  In addition to the ones at our Public Libraries (which are great), I found two more for this year.

  • Barnes & Noble – Kids can get a free book when they read a set number of books
  • Lifeway Christian Bookstore – kids can get a free Bible and a free book when they read six books and memorize six Bible verses

If you know of any others, please feel free to add them.  :)
