Border’s Double Dog Dares You to Read This Summer plus (2) $100 GC Giveaway-CLOSED

Your kids that is! Border’s is challenging kids age 12 to keep up with their summer reading. Simply read 10 books and get 1 free!
Yup, it’s that easy! Kids, read 10 books, log them on the Double-Dog Dare form and bring it into any Borders store and get your choice of 1 of selected titles for free.

Summer unfortunately has the reputation of the mind-drain. All the learning kids do during the regular school year slowly leaks out while swimming, playing ball, climbing trees and vegging out on the sofa. This year can be different! Borders wants to keep your kid’s minds active and fresh for the upcoming school year by enticing them with a free book just for reading 10 books of their choice until August 26th. Read the books they want then choose a book they want from one of the 10 selected titles for FREE.

How do you keep your kids interested in reading especially over the summer?
Jon Scieszka, author of Robot Zot and Knucklehead: Tall Tales and Almost True Stories of Growing up Scieszka says “If you want to inspire your boy reader, expand your definition of reading to include non-fiction, graphic novels, funny books, wordless books, audio books and magazines. Summer reading is a great time to explore texts that aren’t covered/allowed in school reading”.

What books from your childhood would you like to introduce to your kids/friend’s kids/family this summer to start them on a path to lifelong readers? This is your chance to win 1 of 2 $100 Border’s Gift Cards at LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too!
