Thought I would share some reading incentive programs (some are for the summer and some are for the school year). If you are aware of any others, please leave a comment here on the blog and I will update my list! I would love to find more incentive programs for teens, since most of ones that run through the school year are only from grades K-6.

BARNES AND NOBLE SUMMER READING PROGRAM: B&N Summer Reading kicks off May 26. Kids can earn a free book! I don't see any details other than the kickoff date on the website, but suspect that it will be there soon.

LIBRARY READING PROGRAMS: All of our local libraries offer summer reading programs for children and teens. From looking at Clermont County Library website, it appears their program kicks off June 6th. I can't find any details at the Hamilton County Library website, but figure we will just pop in to find out all the details.

BOOKWORM WEDNESDAYS: Bookworm Wednesdays is a fun and rewarding summer reading program developed to encourage young children to read during the summer months. BOOKWORM WEDNESDAYS runs for eight weeks and entitles kids to free admission to a select children's film when they present a book report at a participating Showcase Cinemas, Multiplex Cinemas or Cinema de Lux box office. Accompanying parents or guardians and children under six receive free admission and do not need to submit a book report. Every summer, attendance at BOOKWORM WEDNESDAYS has grown and we expect that it will continue. Thanks to our many sponsors there will be more fun and prizes in the seasons to come.

READ TO SUCCEED: From their website, We are accepting registrations for the 2009-2010 Read to Succeed program. Log on to to order the programtoday. I have heard from some homeschoolers that you can register individually and from others that they registered through their local homeschool co-op. Each child that completes the program receives on free admission ticket to a Six Flags Park. Open to children in grades K-6.

BOOK-IT PROGRAM FROM PIZZA HUT: For anyone who might be interested ... This is a reading program which begins October 1st and ends March 31st (certificates are good through May 1st). Children read, based on goals set by the teacher/parent and are rewarded with Pizza Hut personal pan pizza coupons. We have used this program for years and it is always nice to be able to use the certificates for a special lunch out each month. Open to children in grades K-6. Each family must register at their website:
