Summer is the perfect time for kids to explore the world around them, without ever leaving their backyard or bedroom. All they need is a good book and a vivid imagination. Barnes & Noble’s Summer Reading Program rewards kids (grades 1 through 6) with a FREE book, after they’ve read any eight books and recorded which part of the book is their favorite and why.
Along with their parents, kids keep track of the books they’ve read in their “Reading Journal.” You can download a journal here.
Bring the completed journal (which asks kids to list the book title, author and favorite part), to any participating location and pick out a well-deserved reward from a limited selection of children’s books.
The family-friendly program runs now through August 31. Don’t forget, the bookstore also offers a FREE Kids’ Club with rewards and special offers — all year-long.
