Summer is here and that means lots of time outdoors, popsicles and snacks all day, and – let’s admit it – probably a lot of screen time. But it also means local summer reading programs that may actually get your kids excited about cracking open a book before September!
When I was a kid, we lived for those personal pan pizzas from Pizza Hut. And earning them just for reading? Well, that sounded like a good summer to me!
Luckily, these days it’s more than just Pizza Hut that is into incentivizing reading programs over the summer!
From ice cream shops to the public library, books stores to – you guessed it – pizza hut, there’s really something for everyone to enjoy this summer. All while reading a book!
Here are some of our favorite local summer reading programs for kids!
