barnes and noble free reading program

If your children are grades 1st through 6th, sign them up this summer for the Barnes and Noble FREE reading program!

Whenever your child reads 8 books and record them in their Reading Journal, they bring their journal back and pick out any book from the Reading Journal list for FREE!

Even if your kids aren’t avid readers, this is great way to encourage them to read.

Find a Barnes and Noble near you and sign up soon.

      I work for Barnes and Noble. Children are allowed to participate in this offer once. Make sure to look at the back of the paper provided to you when you sign up to see which books are available.

        What do you mean by once? Only one summer? One book? Thanks for your clarification.

          It’s just once per summer, meaning your child reads x number of books (I think it’s 8 books), fills out a sheet they have at the store with the titles and your info, and then choose which free title they want from a particular display of books. Bring the book and the sheet up to the cashier; they keep the sheet, you keep your book. It’s a limited selection of books, but they offer books at various reading levels. We’ve loved it every year; and even this summer, when my daughter was older and had already read all the older ones that were available, she enjoyed picking a book out so that she’d have it to donate at Christmas.

      Some additional info: When we dropped in to pick up a form at the store for the first time (they are in store or online) they invited my preschooler to participate as well; so if you have younger kids, it doesn’t hurt to ask if they can be less than 1st grade age.
      Second, the free books list is divided into age groups, but they have been just fine with the kids picking out of any age group.
      Finally, if you are in a city area, the sooner you complete this the better; popular books can completely disappear within a couple weeks of the start and pickings can be slim to none by the end. This is less of a problem in less highly populated areas.
