This summer, Bookshop Santa Cruz’s popular summer reading program is back! Kids in grades K-12 who read 6 books—at least 3 from Bookshop’s recommended reading list and up to 3 of their choice—will get to read terrific, age-tailored books, and earn excellent rewards including:
- a $5 Bookshop Santa Cruz gift card,
- a free scoop from the Penny Ice Creamery,
- a free slice from Pizza My Heart,
- a special prize from the Santa Cruz Warriors,
- and a Watershed Rangers activity book from the Coastal Watershed Council!
To get started you can:
- Stop by Bookshop Santa Cruz to see the books and pick up the summer reading bookmark for your age level.
- Order books online and we will include the bookmark with your shipment or when you pick up your order curbside or in the store.
- Download and print the bookmarks via the pdfs on the Bookshop Santa Cruz website.
Hang on to your bookmark because it’s also your reading tracking form that you’re going to use all summer and turn back into us before school starts. Visit the Bookshop Santa Cruz website to see recommended reading for grades K-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 and 9-12, pick out your first book and start reading!
How to complete the challenge: Return your filled out bookmark to Bookshop, making sure to note your name, age, and school before turning it in, by September 8th. Then you will get to collect your rewards and proudly post your name on our Summer Reading wall!
