Rediscovered Books is thrilled to announce that Boise will be
participating in an exciting national summer reading program sponsored
by independent bookstores:
Give Me Summer! Give Me Books!
Our goal is to
create a vibrant community reading program that brings independent
bookstores, schools and libraries together to read great books!
How kids can participate:
Registration for Give Me Summer! Give Me Books! will begin with a kick-off party at Rediscovered Books, May 31st from 1-3pm, with FABOO! Puppet Theater, snacks, balloons, and face-painting. Kids going into grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 just need to come to our store, grab their summer reading tracking forms (they double as bookmarks!), and pick up a few books to kick off the program! All the program book picks will be 20% off the day of the event, and 10% for the rest of the summer.
Booksellers from around the country have selected six fantastic book choices for each grade level. To complete our reading challenge, kids need to read six books total, including at least three books from our suggested list. After they’ve read three of their six book, they can come into the store to get a “goal post” treat. At the end of the summer, kids can return their completed forms and claim their rewards!
This year, we will be rewarding our summer reading champions with a cupcake from A Cupcake Paradise (just around the corner on Bannock St.) and entry into a raffle for a bunch of great books and prizes. Raffle winners will be drawn at our wrap-up party, August 16th at 3pm.
How schools can participate:
We see our local schools as natural and essential partners in our mission to build a strong community of readers. So, we are asking all participating readers to write the name of their school on their registration forms. At the end of the summer, we will tally up participation by school and the school with the most students involved will get a classroom set (20 copies) of one of the summer reading program book selections of their choice.
We are so sure you're going to like this book that we GUARANTEE it!
If you don't love it (extremely unlikely) bring it back - we'll give
you a full refund in credit towards the purchase of a book of your
