My family and I love bookstores. We were at Barnes and Noble last week, and I noticed on the end of one shelf in the kids’ section a pamphlet entitled, Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Imagination’s Destination Reading Journal. Naturally, I picked it up.
Maybe you already knew that Barnes and Noble has a reading program, but I had no clue! I love anything that encourages reading, and I love getting free books! Here’s how it works. Your student has to read 8 books and fill out the reading journal telling to whom they would recommend each book and why. Hand it in to Barnes and Noble by September 7, 2015 and BAM! your student as earned a free book from the list found within the reading journal. Easy peasy!
Now, no where does it say that the child has to do the reading themselves, so, parents, you can read to your child and fill in their answers. Although the free books choices are categorized from grade 1 – grade 6, it does not specify that your student must be within those grades/age limits. I will be reading to my 3-year-old daughter, writing in her answers, and (hopefully) getting a free Pinkalicious book to add to her collection.
I just wanted share this great opportunity to get our kids reading. If you already knew about this , pass this along to a friend who may not know.
Till Next Time,
