Summer Reading Programs

Summer is just around the corner and parents start wondering how to keep their little ones occupied during the summer months. My kids are no stranger to reading programs. Every summer our library system in Nevada runs some sort of reading challenge or activity for children.

This year we found Barnes & Noble’s version of a reading challenge called Imagination’s Destination.


For every eight books your child reads and records in the Reading Journal, they’ll get one free book from B&N’s collection.



This has been a great incentive for my kids who were less than enthusiastic about getting another plastic medal from the library. They are hoping to turn in as many journals as possibles in exchange for more free books. 😉

      I know! That would be awesome! B&N has a pretty cute children section in their stores. It’s full of great books and very well displayed. Unfortunately, B&N also sells other stuff including toys, and I feel that most kids who come to the store get distracted by those toys, taking away from the amazing books. Hopefully this program will boost kids’ interest in reading and purchasing books.

    I wish we had a bookstore, any bookstore, closer to where we live. I would totally sign my kids up for this reading challenge, but there’s no B&N anywhere near to us, so they have to make do with plastic medals and bookmarks from the library. 🙂
