Back again for 2013 is the Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Program, called Imagination's Destination, for children in grades 1-6.
The Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Program encourages your children to engage their imaginations all summer long by reading books of their own choosing, while also earning a free book!
Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Program Details:
1. Your child can read any eight books this summer and record them in the Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Imagination’s Destination Journal. Be sure to let them know to whom you would recommend each book, and why.
2. Bring your completed journal to a Barnes & Noble store between May 21st and September 3rd, 2013.
3. Choose your FREE reading adventure from the book list featured on the back of the journal.
