Amazon is offering two programs this summer to help children and their families discover new and interesting books

Journey into Reading

Join Amazon this summer as we explore weekly reading topics with recommendations for children ages 6 – 12. Visit every week for new recommendations and free activity sheets created by educators.

Two programs geared toward inspiring a love of reading and encouraging kids to discover new worlds through books. Journey into Reading features a rotating list of topics with age-appropriate reading recommendations, selected by teachers and Amazon Books editors. The second program, the Summer Reading Challenge, runs in Amazon Books locations from June 15 through August 23 and is open to children in kindergarten through eighth grade. Children who read at least seven books while participating in the Summer Reading Challenge can turn in a sign-up sheet to receive a personalized certificate and one free book from select National Geographic Kids titles.

Journey into Reading highlights a new topic or genre every week, such as The Great Outdoors or Fantasy. Several curated book selections are chosen for each topic, so parents can use their child’s interests to guide book selections.

In addition, the Journey into Reading program offers free age-appropriate downloadable activity sheets to use alongside books to help children stay engaged.
