Summer is here and we often get wrapped up in the fun and tend to forget about the keeping the kids’ brains refreshed. One great way to help keep the kids involved in learning over summer break is to take advantage of free local reading programs.
Reading over the summer can help some kids retain what they recently learned in school. These programs are a lot of fun! Earn books, rewards and more. Amazon also offers free Kindle reading books as well.
Junie B. Kids’ Club: Monthly updates about new books, fun printables like holiday cards, Junie B. games and activities, special events, sweepstakes, and more!
