Summer Reading for Children

I am in the process of searching out some fun summer reading programs for the girls.  So far we have begun the following:

We attended the Maury County Library Summer Reading program carnival – the girls recieved tickets for registering and got to play games.  The program consists of completing tasks that are age appropriate and they get to win prizes with the completion of 3, 6, & 9 items on the list.  Today they came home with pretty necklaces, a notebook, a rubber kind of little man, and a couple of purchases from the other kids selling at the Youth yard sale on site.

I have begun with Molly the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading program found here. She is quite excited about getting a free book for reading.

I checked out Half Price Books & Cici’s Pizza are teaming up here.  Unfortunately there are not any participating locations in my area… oh well!  The child either gets a coupon for a buffet visit to Cici’s Pizza or $3 towards a book purchase. is offering a weekly book give away and your child can accumulate points on line for a team they get assigned to and the winners get to pick an organization for Scolastic to donate to.

We plan on attending our local library to participate in their program as well next week.  I am looking forward to that one since they had some nice prizes last year!

I had already signed up for the Book It program for next year.  Even if you are homeschooling, you can register and the materials will be mailed in September.

What about you? Have you found anything worth signing up for?  I am excited this year since Molly has really stepped up her reading this year.  She has really enjoyed her chapter books.  I want to focus on her strengths in that this summer and we shall see how that goes!
