It’s hard to believe that summer is almost here already! I’ll be sharing inexpensive activities all summer long, and what better way to kick it off than with FREE summer reading programs to encourage kids to continue reading throughout the summer?

Thanks for this list, I didn’t know about the BookIt Summer Program. Cool!
H-E-B also has a cool reading program. Read 10 books and mail in your list, you receive a HEB Buddy tee shirt along some great goodies! We do it every Summer and my daughter gets excited when she receives her HEB Buddy shirt…
