Three of the programs I mentioned in my previous post “Summer Reading 2012: Promote reading and earn prizes” have now been updated for 2012. Here are the details and links!
Barnes & Noble – When your child reads 8 books and brings in their completed reading log, they can earn a free book from a selection of books. Their website also includes fun activities, tips, and recommended books.
Pottery Barn Kids – For the PBK Summer Reading Challenge, children can choose from two different book lists depending on their reading level. When they have completed reading the books on their list, they can earn a free book at their nearest Pottery Barn location.
Half Price Books – This bookseller also hosts its own summer reading program, Feed Your Brain. After reading 300 or more minutes, kids can earn $5 Back-to-School Bucks to spend at their stores.
NOTE: H.E. Buddy has still not updated its website with 2012 information.
