Note: The following tip I just heard about is for Arizona Residents. If your state has a program similar to this (other than the library summer reading program), let me know and I am more than happy to share it!
Attention Arizona Residents!
Every child who reads 5 books (with or without a parent) can earn free admission to the Arizona Science Center. This is available for any child 11th grade in school and under (and yes, any child under age 5 counts!). Check out the Governor’s Summer Reading Program for more specifics on the book requirements for each age group.
I was expecting the list to be difficult reading choices, but was pleasantly surprised. This is definitely something we can do.
This is in addition to the regular library summer reading program. So, double the summer fun!
