Make summer reading a priority and get a free book and more

It can be difficult to make reading a priority over summer vacation. Incentives can inspire kids to pick up a book and put down the television remote.

Naperville Public Library offers a wonderful summer reading program. After completing a reading path, each child will receive a prize and reward. Most recently, my kids got a free meal from Meatheads for completing their reading path and they got to choose a prize from the treasure chest.

Borders offers a summer incentive program. The program Double Dog Dare is for  kids under 12 years old. After reading 10 books, the child will earn a free book. The free book is one of 10 titles and is available in-store only. This program is available at Borders, Borders Express or Walden Books. The program ends on August 26.

Barnes and Noble has a summer reading program too. This program is for children in grades first through sixth. Download the Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Passport. After a child reads 8 books, he is eligible to receive his free book. Turn in the passport at any Barnes and Noble to receive one of the selected books. Here are the terms and conditions: Eligible books will be listed on the coupon. Choices must be made from available stock. No special orders. Limit of one (1) form per school-age child (grades 1-6). Incomplete form will be ineligible for free books.  Click here to download the passport form.

No more excuses. Get out and read this summer.
