I am happy to see so many businesses helping to provide an incentive to young kids to get them to read this summer. I now know of two major programs going on right now…
1. Barnes and Noble – encourages kids to read 8 books and record them in the reading journal. Once completed they return to the list to their local Barnes & Noble store where they will be allowed to choose one book from a preselected list for free.
They also have a cute little project of making your own book…check it out here.
2. TD Bank – encourages kids to read 10 books and also fill out their form and bring it in to your local branch where they will be rewarded with $10 which will be deposited into a new or existing Young Saver Account.
Now granted reading is its own reward, however we all know kids sometimes need a little push, and this is an awesome way to do so.
Do you have any incentive ideas, or know of any other programs going on right now? Tell me about it!
