There are several different free reading programs available for kids, including online reading programs that are available with free trials, such as Reading Kingdom, library summer reading programs that are completely free for children and book banks, such as the Philadelphia Reads Book Bank, that offer free books to children. One of the best ways to find free reading programs for kids is to contact educators and libraries.
Most of the time the educators and library owners will be aware of the best free reading programs in the area and are only too happy to share the names of the local programs with parents and young children. Some reading programs such as book banks focus exclusively on providing children with used and new books that can be taken home and kept. Other reading programs focus on providing children with not only books but also with a program to ensure that they set goals for their reading activity.
Although online reading programs are not always free, they often offer free trials that children and parents can use to help educate children in the short-term while they wait to connect with other reading programs. Parents are also an important part of the free reading programs, as many programs require or encourage parental involvement. Parents can help children develop better language skills and reading skills by reading to their children.
