  • Redeem the complete form at any Border’s store by 8/26/10 for a free preselected book

Borders is offering great tips this summer to keep your kids reading and able to cash in on the great free book offer.

“Encourage your children to read books about people and who are different from them. In fact, Katherine Paterson, recently named National Ambassador for Children’s Literature by the Library Of Congress and author of many award-winning books for children, including Bridge to Terabithia says, “I began reading on my own very early because I knew the magic that books held, and when I came to the United States and was regarded as alien by my classmates, books provided me with friends who helped me to understand myself and to have compassion for other people. So I urge everyone to read for your life–for enjoyment and knowledge and as a member of a family and a citizen not only of your community but of the world.”

If you have a tween boy who loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid try introducing him to Pippi Longstocking. It may be a story about a girl but it’s full of adventure and wild antics and feisty characters.
A simple change of characters and stories may be all your kids need to spark a renewed love of reading this summer. Right now buy 2 selected Junie B. Jones books and get 1 free.
