    My kids always love the summer reading programs.

    Here's a link to Barnes and Nobles': http://www.barnesandnoble.com/summerreading/

    Here's a link to Borders': http://www.borders.com/online/store/MediaView_summerreadingkids?cmpid=k1-51809

    Also, don't forget to check your local library. Ours has a great program. The kids get free t-shirts for signing up and then earn raffle tickets (that can be used to try to win prizes) for reading a certain number of books/pages and/or wearing their shirt to check out books at the library.

    Half Price Books has a program, too. Read 15 minutes a day for 5 days and get a $3 gift card. You can repeat every five days until the end of July. Here's the website: http://www.halfpricebooks.com/for_parents_and_teachers.html
    My neighbor already took her kids to get their first $3 card! --Katie

    We got those papers on Wed, when I went in to look for kids' audiobooks. The boys are already started.
