The end of the school year is looming ever closer and trying to find summer activities is always a challenge.

Why not get them involved in some of the great Summer Reading Programs?

Many of these programs include your kids earning prizes or cash!

Check out this list of Nationwide List:

Junie B Jones Reading Club [2] – Sign up and get a FREE starter Kit that includes a copy of Junie B Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, Activity sheets and a membership ID card while supplies last.

Book Adventure [3] – Sylvan offers this FREE reading incentive program.
