Making Reading Fun for the Whole Family + an iPad mini giveaway!

I admit it. I was the child who carried a book out to recess. I've always been an avid reader. Now that I have children of my own, I'm looking for ways to instill that same passion for reading in my children. We own a ton of books. A ton. So many in fact, that my son felt compelled to load the kitchen sink with books. . .

Our bookshelves are overflowing, and yet I know that there are so many other great books out there. I know that by opening my children's eyes to the joy of reading, I'm equipping them for success in many other areas of life.

If you're like me, your home is probably already stuffed with toys, books, etc. Wouldn't it be great if there was a way to have access to hundreds of books and not have to worry about where you are going to put them all? That's why I'm so excited about the new program from Bookboard.

Bookboard is an ipad app that custom tailors book selections for each child in your family (from toddlers up to age 12). It's super easy to sign up. Answer a few questions about the readers in your family and Bookboard will customize a library for each specific child. The more your kids read, the more books they unlock based on their reading habits and interests. New books and features are added each month to help keep your child coming back for more.

For a limited time, you can try the service for a full month for FREE, and see how it works in your own home. If you sign up and read one of the 300 available books with your child, you will be automatically entered in a giveaway for an iPad mini. Pretty sweet deal. 

About Bookboard:

Bookboard is a children’s book service that encourages and supports a new generation of readers with a different approach to reading on digital devices.  Rather than providing a digital marketplace where families buy and download books, Bookboard offers an affordable subscription service that allows instant exploration of a vast, curated library.  

Bookboard aims to inspire young readers by helping them discover new titles and earn fun achievements. As they read, families discover, unlock, and collect great stories to foster a sense of accomplishment that keeps kids coming back for more. At the same time, parents can track reading progress, and use our fun metrics to motivate kids to read even more.
