Kids can earn a free book from Barnes & Noble this summer

Abigail Rosenthal, GateHouse Media

Free time in the summer creates a great opportunity to work through a growing stack of books. And for kids in grades 1 through 6, there’s a reward waiting at the end of the stack.

As part of Barnes & Noble’s Summer Reading Program, kids in grades 1 through 6 just have to keep track of eight books they read, marking down the titles and writing about their favorite part in Barnes & Noble’s Summer Reading Journal. After they’ve finished, they can bring their completed journal to any Barnes & Noble during the month of August to claim a free book.
