2020 Summer Reading Programs around Houston

2020 Summer Reading Programs around HoustonGrowing up in a big family meant that summer vacations weren’t always as lavish as I dreamed they would be. Summer reading was a way for me to experience the world many times over. In this season of change, one thing that has remained constant is my family’s love of reading. It is only with a book in our hands that we can escape the reality that we are in and reach a land of beauty, peace, love—or drama, war, and magic. Whatever your taste, there is book to meet your wish.

I know that some of our kiddos would rather reach for the remote before they reach for a book. If your kids {and you} need motivation to escape from Netflix binge watching, here are some great resources for you and your family.

Summer Reading Incentive Programs

1. Public Libraries:: Houston Public Library, Harris County Public Library, and Fort Bend County Libraries all have summer reading programs. You can log your books online as well as keep track of all of the virtual activities that your family participates in. Starting July 6th you can pick up your prizes through the curbside pick up option.

Bonus:: They all have virtual events happening on their respective pages. Check Harris County Library’s page. You might want to check out the Magic show first…it’s really good…. for the kids, I mean.

2. Barnes and Noble:: Read 8 books and you get to choose a free one from the diverse list attached to the reading log. You can read anything from magazines, audio books, and books that parents read aloud to their little ones can be logged. You can get more information and the downloadable tracking sheet here.

3. Pizza Hut Book It:: I remember participating in this as a kid, and I register my students for this program every year. Now, parents can register their kids at home! Log your books here and get your coupon for a free personal pizza.

4. Blue Willow Book Shop:: This is one of my favorite local bookstores, and they are joining in on the virtual summer reading programs as well. While reading and logging books you can be entered for a chance to win a gift card. Read books and then get more books? Sounds like a plan to me!

5. Books A million: Don’t think getting more books is enough of an incentive to get your kids to read? Try this program! If you read 5 books you can turn in your reading log for a Dog Man Baseball Cap—don’t forget your mask!

Happy Reading!
