Garnetta, a long-time Five J's reader, sent me a list of great summer reading programs to share with the rest of my readers. (I've also added the reading programs suggested by commenters to this list.)
While your children read books over the summer, they can earn money, t-shirts, free movie admission, and more. Reading programs are also an easy way to encourage and motivate reluctant readers.
If you know of any other programs that aren't on the list, please let me know in the comments!
