FREE Summer Reading Programs 2014


Here is the Free Summer Reading Program 2014 Round Up! These are some great rewards that should definitely encourage your kiddos to keep reading this summer! (Not sure why one of the boys is wearing beads and why one is upside down. Whatever works friends, whatever works 🙂 )

Tennessee Smokies Summer Reading Program


If you live in the Knoxville area this is a program that you will want to check out. The Tennessee Smokies Summer Reading Program is for Smokies fans 12-and-under.

There are five levels of participation that are to be completed by each child participating. To complete a level all your child has to do is read 10 books, 10 chapters, or have 10 books read to him/her (if your child is not reading yet). Once your child has completed his/her first level, bring the Level 1 reading program form to the ticket office at Smokies Park, and exchange it for prizes and free tickets to a Smokies game. We did this last summer and it was great! Here are the rest of the details:

LEVEL 1 – The Single: Two Smokies Tickets, Shoney’s Bookmark
LEVEL 2 – The Double: Two Smokies Tickets, a Shoney’s Pencil
LEVEL 3 – The Triple: Two Smokies Tickets, a Shoney’s & Homer’s Color Me Pennant
LEVEL 4 – The Home Run: Two Smokies Tickets, a Knoxville Zoo ticket & a Free Shoney’s Dessert
LEVEL 5 – The Grand Slam: Two Tickets to the August 4th Picnic at the Ballpark, a Smokies Card set & a Shoney’s Healthy Kids Meal
