Sylvan’s Book Adventure Program
The Book Adventure Program by Sylvan isn’t just kids reading, it’s also an incentive program! A child reads books and later takes a short, 10 answer comprehension quiz to see how much they understood about the book they read. Points are earned depending on how much they remember and understand about the books they read. Once your child has enough points, they can collect fun prizes from Sylvan!
Sylvan has a great selection of books to choose from, most of which can be found at your local library.
Don’t forget to check into your own local library for great activities and FREE summer book reading programs in your own backyard!
