Kids Earn a Free Book with the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Program

We have been doing the Summer Reading Program at Barnes & Noble for years. This is Little Nut Nut’s first year and Wing Nut’s last year to participate, the program is open for kids in grades 1st-6th. My kids love to read and they have book lights or sit near their closet lights for some bedtime reading.

Kids have to read 8 books, although I swear it used to be more than 8, but I could be wrong. You print out the Reading Journal PDF, take it to your local Barns & Noble and the kids get to pick out a book from a preselected list from B&N. There is also a Fun Activities & Teaching Tips PDF to print out as well that also includes the 2 page Reading Journal, these activities are GREAT homeschool lessons because they are based on the books that are being read and we use it as part of our Summer Homeschool lessons.

There is a great list of suggested book, and many of them are Lego related. I wonder if my kids would be interested, lol.

    What a neat reading program. We do the one at our local library and they have to complete 4 levels of 180 minutes each plus the extra reading challenge level to get a free book. After each level they get little prizes like free food from a participating eatery or a free pass to a local pool for the day. I am sure they would prefer the 8 books program like yours instead. 😉

    Also, praying for Owain’s upcoming surgery.

      That sounds like a pretty intense program Stefenie, sounds like we probably like it more than the kids, lol.

      Thanks for the prayers for Owain, August 7th can’t come soon enough.
