| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Borders has issued a Summer Reading Challenge to keep kids reading throughout the warm summer months. From now until Aug. 31, children 12 and younger can read any eight books of their choosing, tell Borders what they've read, and when they've completed the challenge they can choose from a selection of books priced at 50 percent or more off the regular price.

If you can't come up with eight titles, Borders also has assembled a list of recommendations:

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown (birth to 3)
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (birth to 3)
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak (ages 3-6)
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss (ages 3-6)
Horrid Henry by Francesca Simon (ages 7-9)
Ivy & Bean by Annie Barrows (ages 7-9)
Diary of a Wimpy Kid #3: The Last Straw by Jeff Kinney (ages 8-12)
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume (ages 8-12)
Percy Jackson #5: The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan (ages 8-12)
