Reading can be fun and rewarding this summer

Sometimes we all need a little motivation…

Kids will be inspired to pick up a book and read all summer long with cool prizes and giveaways. Local retailers are offering incentives to keep kids reading this summer. To earn prizes, children are asked to keep a reading log to earn rewards. Click on the links below to find out how each program works. Make sure to share this list with your friends.
