Borders Summer Reading Double Dog Dare $100 Gift Card GIVEAWAY - TWO WINNERS

I have always had a passion for reading and have tried my best to make it where my kids have the same love for books. We have books all throughout our house and Evan is always bringing them to me to read for him. I'm afraid that like most kids, he will not like reading as much one day.



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.”

Win It!!
Borders is giving TWO of my readers a $100 gift card!

My daughter really wants the hungary caterpillar book. My summer reading tip is that reading can be done anywhere, take a book to the park and when the kids need to take a break for some water, read a book in the shade!!!

I always have my book with me in the summer- so if I have to wait for the kids to be done, or honey isn't ready to go I can read a few pages- least I can get in some time to read! I also choose to turn off the TV and head outside with my book! I think it is so peaceful to read and hear the birds sing!
Thanks!
