Although our kids are doing a little schoolwork through the summer, their lessons are relaxed enough to allow for lots of extra-curricular reading. That’s why summer book clubs and reading rewards programs have always been so popular at our house.
Kids earn freebies by reading this summer
With as little as 15-30 minutes of reading a day, children can earn books, ice cream, T-shirts, kids meals, pencils and pencil cases, game tokens, Bibles, movie passes, personal pan pizzas, and even tickets to Six Flags — all absolutely FREE!
I spent the morning updating all my reading rewards links. To view the list in its entirety, follow this one: 2018 Reading Rewards Programs
Some of these reading programs are only offered during the summer months. Others are valid year round. A few require early registration. (If you’re too late to register this year, mark your calendar now so you won’t miss signing up next.) Have I missed a reading reward offer? Let me know comment section below so I can add them to my list. Thanks!
Book-loving moms enjoy freebies, too!
Reading rewards aren’t just for kids! I’m a bit of a bookworm and love freebies, too. If you feel the same way, you’ll want to make note of the following offers:
- My Reader Rewards – Earn points for completing a variety of easy tasks (sharing tweets, answering polls, joining email lists). Exchange points for free books and Bibles. It’s fast and easy. You can purchase books with as few as 10 points. Use my referral link, and you’ll earn your first 25 points just for signing up!
- Christian Audio – This generous company offers a new, free, full-length audiobook download every month. The selection this month (June 2018) is Maria Goff’s Love Lives Here. In past months they’ve given away other great titles, including new releases of best selling authors like Gary Thomas, Michael Hyatt, Kevin DeYoung, and Tony Evans, to name just a few.
- More Free Books – Here are a few more of my favorite sources for free books, whether you prefer print, digital, or audio.
- Reading Challenge for All Ages – Download this free printable and challenge your spouse or child(ren) to see which of you can read a book from all twenty-six genres first.
- Ditching Digital Devises in Favor of Reading – Our family has used this time chart in the past to encourage reading and limit time spent on electronic media. (You may want to adjust the time ratios for older children.)
