Publishers of books for teens and adults have discovered the Internet as a way to build brand loyalty among young readers. And why not? Sites like HarperCollins' Awesome Adventures introduce readers to a variety of titles and authors and offer games, sweepstakes and more. Check it out.
Scholastic.com has a site for kids and teens called The Stacks. The site offers movie trailers for films based on books published by Scholastic, a Summer Reading Challenge, games, book reviews and and a live book trivia game featuring authors like Jon Scieszka, and Christopher Curtis. It looks like a lot of fun.
You plan to read anyway, so, join the Parkland Community Library's Make a Splash - READ! Summer Reading Club and join these online sweepstakes and reading challenges. You can use the same books for ALL of these clubs OR you can read even more books and split them between the different challenges.
Keep reading all summer and you will go back to sc***l (shhh, it's too early to even think of that word) smarter than ever!
