From The Suburban Mama: 2019 Free Summer Reading Programs
Parents and teachers fear the dreaded summer slip. While summer should be a time for free play and lazy days, encouraging kids to pick up a book is proven to make a difference. These 2019 free summer reading programs are a great way to offer kids an incentive to keep reading and exploring with fun prizes like free books, money and games.
2019 Free Summer Reading Programs
DOGOBooks Summer Reading Program
We discovered DOGOBooks two summers ago, and it quickly became one of my daughter’s favorite websites year round. Book reviews for kids by kids encourages young readers to share their thoughts on the books they read. Kids are invited to read books and share their reviews of the books. The top 10 reviewers will win a book prize pack, the next 25 top reviewers will win a $10 gift card. FREE BOOKS.
TD Bank Summer Reading Program
From June 1 – August 31, 2019, 10 books = $10! One your kids read 10 books have them fill out form, take it to your nearest TD Bank and TD Bank will deposit $10 into their Young Saver Account. (Note, you will need to either have or open a Young Saver Account for this program.) $10 cash! (The 2019 details have not yet been released, check back soon.)
Barnes and Noble’s Summer Reading
Through August 31, 2019, have your kids read any 8 books and record them in the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Journal (available online or in store). Once they complete the journal, they can take it back to the store to pick a free book from the list at the back of the journal. Note – this summer reading program includes TEENS and ADULTS, but only kids grades 1-6 earn a prize! FREE BOOK!
Amazon Summer Reading Challenge
When students K-8 read any 8 books and turn in their list by September 10, 2019, they will earn a free book. It looks like you have to turn in the list to one of the Amazon retail or pop-up stores, so it appears to only be available in certain areas. Check the website for details. FREE BOOK!
