“The more you read,
the more things you will know, 
the more you learn,
the more places you will go.”
Dr. Seuss
Wigu Publishing is the publisher of those great children’s books, WHEN I GROW UP I WANT TO BE….. that I keep raving about here on the blog.  They have introduced a Summer Reading and Writing incentive for children that you will definitely want to be a part of.
For the summer reading:
All you need to do is go to www.WhenIGrowUpBooks.com/SummerSuperstars. Once there you can enter your child’s minutes of reading for each week.  Winners will be chosen each week from the children who read 100 or more minutes.  
TO ENTER WEEKLY DRAWINGS (or enter your child’s submission):
  • Read 20 minutes a day (a minimum of 100 minutes per week)
  • In the form below, submit the number of minutes you’ve read (daily or weekly – we will track your total minutes).
  • To qualify for weekly drawing, you must read a minimum of 100 minutes per week.
  • Follow @WiguBooks on Twitter and/or Facebook and check our weekly drawing for $20 Amazon gift card and Wigu Book – simply type in #WiguWednesdays for the latest winners
  • Two Grand Prize winners of $100 Amazon gift cards!
  • Kids, you may enter every week as long as you keep reading and tracking your minutes.
*First weekly prize to be given away Wednesday, June 4th followed by each consecutive Wednesday, through August 27th.
**Grand prize winners will be selected based on top number of minutes read through the summer in 2 age divisions: 8 and under and 9 and up.  Grand Prizes will be announced Friday, August 29th.
If your child is more of a writer than a reader:
Click on the same website as above. Once you are there, you can enter your child’s original essay on their dream career.
TO ENTER (or enter your child’s submission):
  • Share your career dreams with us via the form below
  • 10 finalists will each receive a $100 Amazon gift card and Wigu Book
  • Grand prize winner to receive an additional $250 Amazon gift card and a $1,000 donation to his or her school or library of choice.
  • Winners will be notified via email and social media. Make sure to follow us @WiguBooks on Twitter and @WhenIGrowUpBooksbyWigu on FB
*Submission accepted through August 30th
**10 finalists to be announced on Friday, September 5th
***Grand prize winner to be announced Friday September 12th
Even if you are a little late getting started in your summer reading, don’t delay any longer. Get your child reading and enter those minutes.  You just might be a winner! 
I’m linking up today with other bloggers at Booking Mama’s Kid Konnection.  Find other great children’s book reviews and book-related posts as well as those for middle-grade and young adults every Saturday morning.
