Thought this Summer Reading Program from Half Price Books was a neat idea. (Of course I was one of those kids who read after a bedtime with a flashlight under the covers so it's not surprising I like this promotion to encourage reading!)

The store is offering kids (12 and under) a $3 shopping card for each week they read at least 15 minutes a day. The promotion is running for the months of June and July so a great way to keep those reading skills active over the summer months.

Checklists, reading logs, and tips to help your kids select books can be downloaded directly from their website.
