Borders knows that getting kids to be enthusiastic about reading during the summer can be difficult. They have given kids a Double Dog Dare to try and get them more excited about reading.
Children under 12 have through the end of August to read any ten books that they'd like and Borders will give them a FREE BOOK! Simply go print off the Double-Dog Dare form and list the books that they've read during the summer. Take the form to Borders and get your FREE book!
Want to encourage your kids to read? Check out this tip from Jon Scieszka, author of Robot Zot and Knucklehead: Tall Tales and Almost True Stories of Growing up Scieszka:
“If you want to inspire your boy reader, expand your definition of reading to include non-fiction, graphic novels, funny books, wordless books, audio books and magazines. Summer reading is a great time to explore texts that aren't covered/allowed in school reading.”
