Every year the Houston Public Library runs an incentive-based reading program that rewards kids and teens for reading. The more they read, the more they earn. They can even read comic books and listen to audiobooks as their qualifying books. Yes, they also have to attend a few library events, but those are free too!
The John P. McGovern Foundation Summer Reading Program runs from June 1 (today!) to August 1, 2015 and is open to readers up to 18 years of age. This year rewards include:
- A Houston Dash game ticket and a certificate 5 books or 5 hours
- A Houston Dynamo game ticket and one free book for reading 10 books or 10 hours
- Chipotle meal coupon, additional free book and a coupon for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for reading 20 books or 20 hours
- Children’s Museum of Houston admission voucher and entry into a Grand Prize drawing to win a new Xbox One console for reading 30 books or more or 30+ hour
