One of the ways I have found to keep our book budget down is to enroll my children in all the summer reading programs we can. Half Price Books offers $3 gift cards for each week you read 15 minutes a day. If you do the entire program from June 1- July 31 that adds up quick! We also use Barnes and Noble where they can earn two free books each. We have three libraries around us and we sign up for each program, some offer new books, others food coupons.
This year I'm also hosting our own summer reading program and will be offering WebKinz for each 15 books read or a limit of two webkinz a month or they can choose a cash prize!! I'm hoping this will help my struggling reader. My book lover will be reading off our summer reading list.
Summer reading programs save money and are a way to keep their brains from going to mush!
