*Expired* Summer Reading Programs

by Freebies4Mom on May 21, 2008 9:36 pm

I’m following up on the Summer Fun theme by finally posting about the Summer Reading Program links I’ve been collecting. Participating in Summer Reading Programs is a great way to keep your kids interested in reading and learning, and they can earn free books and other fun stuff too!

Barnes & Noble – for kids in Grades 1 thru 6, you can earn a free book after reading 8 and some locations also have a regularly scheduled story time (check find an event for your store).

Pottery Barns Book Club – not just a Summer program, this regularly scheduled storytime goes on all year long on Tuesday at 10am. And your kids get a coupon ($10 off a purchase – thanks for the update T.Scott!) after attending 5 sessions and getting their booklet stamped.

Feed Your Brain Money Saving Methods gives you the details of this reading program from Half-Price Books and CiCi’s Pizza where your kids can make money on reading!


For my Texas readers:

HEBuddy Reading Club – read 10 books and earn a free t-shirt.

Harris County Library Summer Reading Club – earn a certificate for reading 10 books

Of course check your own local library for their Summer Reading programs. Happy reading!

Im not sure if you have National Amusements Theatres in your area, but they also offer a summer reading program called Bookworm Wed. After your child reads one book & fills out a simple book report they get to watch a selected movie free. They actually offer a couple events for family’s & children. Check it out at

For the pottery barn book club, they give you a booklet to get stamped each time you come. After 5 stamps you get $10 off in the store. It doesn’t have to be used on books, but I always made my kids use their coupon for books anyways. 🙂 You can not combine booklets for a larger $ off. Ex: I saw someone try to use 5 together and get free curtains. Doesn’t work like that. However, each child gets their own booklet. So about every month, each of my kids would get to pick out a book or two and just run seperate transactions. (Sorry that was long!)
