reading reading in the air, reading reading everywhere!

I happened to stumble on summer reading prep in progress at an area library the other day.  I love how our libraries set it up so that even the pre-readers are eligible.  The kiddos keep a reading journal and earn various prizes through out the summer months.  The prizes are usually kinda cheesy.  But hey...when you're a kid...even cheesy prizes are cool.  And the monthly special events are always super fun! 



This year I'm planning to sign them up for the Barnes & Noble summer reading program too! 

Actually, I just learned about their Kids Club and signed all three up right away.  Because, really, who doesn't love a free cupcake?!  Click here for the B&N summer scoop.


Scholastic has partnered with Kumon .  Together they've created a program where your children (5-12) can earn up to 5 books! 

Click here to get the full scoop.  Thanks bunches to my sweet friend, Jen, for scooping me!

**editor's FYI** a more detail oriented person emailed a clarification - it is 5 books per household and there is a limited supply.  As always, make sure you read the fine print when you join.  :)**


And since we're on the topic of reading.  You have heard about Pizza Hut's BookIt program, right?  

I find free pizza is a wonderful motivator. For mommy!

I have a month of free linky thingy-s to use.  So, here's another link-up opportunity!  Share with us any clever reading type things you've blogged about recently!
