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.

Free a Child Becomes a Reader Booklet – Birth to Preschool
Get this free a Child Becomes a Reader Booklet from the National Institute of Child Development. It’s never too early to cultivate a love of reading in your child. I began reading to my kids as soon as they were born. Now, they are both adults and still love to read. My oldest would rather read a book than watch TV.
The Partnership for Reading presents this 36 page booklet offering parents activities and ideas to get even the youngest children interested in reading. This booklet is designed for parents with children from birth to age 5.
You can either order this booklet to receive it by mail if you are in the US. If you are outside of the US, you can view it as a web page or download it in PDF format.
They also offer a booklet for parents with children from Kindergarten age to third grade if you are looking for ideas for you older children.

Book Adventure Reading Program
Book Adventure is a FREE reading motivation program for children in grades K-8. Children create their own book lists from over 7,000 recommended titles, take multiple choice quizzes on the books they’ve read, and earn points and prizes for their literary successes. I have been using this program for years with my kids. They love the fact that the books they read in school can earn them points for toys and games. This is a great way to motivate kids to read, even when school is not in session! I *think* it’s good in Canada as well as the US. If not, let me know.
Another interesting bit – the Book Adventure program is from Sylvan Learning Centers.
