One way to keep children entertained and interested in reading throughout the summer is summer reading programs. Many public libraries have reading programs and other activities for children from young children thru teenagers.
Kristie from Saving Dollars and Sense has put together a list of Summer Reading Programs offered by various companies.
Another program is Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library that you can register for your child to receive a free book monthly from birth to 5 years of age. The program is available in many communities throughout the United States, Canada and United Kingdom.
