Earn Free Pizza in the Book It Pizza Hut Reading Program
The Pizza Hut Book It Reading program has been around for years and I am a huge fan! When my oldest boys were much younger, I used this program to help them learn to read. I would set a reading goal. Once they satisfied that goal, they would earn a coupon for a free personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut. My boys are both adults now, but they still love reading and remember the little rewards fondly. The best part about this program is you set the goals. You choose the books. The Book It program only accepts K-6 grade homeschool families. The enrollment deadline is Sept 1, 2013 for the 2013-2014 school year. US only
The enrollment deadline was September 1, but they are still accepting applications while supplies last.

It also has a card game, juggling balls, a refrigerator magnet, a carb counting tool, a diabetes and a dictionary. You only have to give them your address.
