DOGObooks.com Announces its First Annual Summer Reading Program
With the help of its Children’s Book Publisher partners, DOGObooks has assembled a catalog of 84 popular titles of books for grades 3-8. By reading and posting 3 reviews of 25 words or more on DOGObooks kids will receive their choice of a free book from a prize catalog made up of over 100 of the selected frontlist and backlist titles from the leaders in children’s publishing. In addition, Better World Books is also awarding a 20% coupon for reviewers plus a prize of 200 books for the top ten schools with the most reviews.
A dedicated area on DOGObooks.com will host the Summer Reading and Review Program. A simple signup form with a drop down menu of grammar and middle schools, plus write-ins has been developed. Kids will be able to keep track of their progress and see which books are most popular as reviews and as prizes.
