Kids Summer Reader Programs

  • DOD Summer Reading Program. Children of military families can participate in the Department of Defense summer reading program at bases and military installations worldwide. The theme for 2012 is “Reading Is So Delicious.” Activities will vary depending on location.
  • Pottery Barn Kids Summer Reading Challenge. For children under 10 years of age. Download an Early Reader or Award-Winning reading list at the Pottery Barn Kids website or pick one up at the store. When your child reads all of the books on the list, bring the completed list to a Pottery Barn store and redeem it for a free book.
  • Scholastic “Read for the Record” Summer Challenge. Kids log their reading minutes each day which are then added to their school’s cumulative minutes. The top 20 schools will receive recognition in the 2012 Scholastic Book of World Records. When kids log their weekly allotment, they get to spin the “prize wheel.”
  • Chuck E. Cheese Reading Rewards. Print the Reading Rewards Calendar so kids can record their reading every day for two weeks. Redeem the completed calendar at Chuck E. Cheese for 10 free tokens. A food purchase is required.
  • Your Local Library – Most libraries across the country offer reading programs during the summer. Age and participation requirements will vary by location.
Thanks Shellie!
