Summer Reading Challenge + Book Giveaway

June 5, 2012 By Tracy

Summer is here…well for most of us. The rest of you will join us shortly, I’m sure. Be a Reader – is the number one goal I have set for my kids this summer!! While we always start the summer off in full force with summer reading programs, etc., somehow it always seems that we lose steam somewhere in the middle. Well, not this year! I am planning weekly posts to keep everyone motivated to keep on reading ALL Summer Long!

Want a great way to kick off the summer reading season with a bang? Sign your kids up for Scholastic’s Summer Challenge! This program is dedicated to keep kids reading and having fun over the summer. Kids can log their minutes, win virtual prizes, enter sweepstakes, and more. They are also logging their minutes to help break the world record for summer reading minutes. Last summer, kids read an impressive 64,213,141 minutes! Kids log their minutes with their schools, and the top 20 schools are included in Scholastic’s 2013 Book of World Records! How cool is that?!? 

Now mom’s be sure to download the super cool FREE “Scholastic Reading Timer” app! It can be found in the app store and it is awesome! You can add all your kiddos to the app where they can easily switch from one user to the other. It also has a timer to keep track of how long they are reading. Then without ever leaving the app they can record the minutes into their accounts.

Before you go anywhere though be sure to enter to win the giveaway below. Scholastic is giving one Mommy’s Money Saving Madness reader the two books pictured above. “Zoe gets Ready” and “Can You See What I See? (Toyland Express)”. Just use the rafflecopter form below to enter to win! One winner will be randomly selected, emailed on June 13, and will have 48 hours in which to respond or another winner will be selected. Good Luck!
