Pizza Hut "Book It!"

We participated in the Pizza Hut "Book It!" program last year, and it was a great experience.  We used the program to challenge Connor to read books that were a little more challenging, and he loved getting the free pizza certificate every month.  It also made for a nice family night out, especially once they started their "any size pizza for $10" promotion (which, sadly, looks like it's supposed to end soon.)  The best part?  It's completely FREE.

I really appreciate businesses/organizations that are so open to homeschoolers, and I like the way the program is set up.  You have the flexibility to set your own reading goals for your children rather than being tied to preset requirements.  You can require a certain number of books, number of pages, or number of minutes of reading--whatever works for your child.  With Connor, we started off easy (a little too easy, we discovered!) and then got more challenging each month.

The deadline to enroll your homeschool is June 30, and you can enroll here.  It sounds like they'll accept enrollments later, but only as long as supplies last, so if you want to be sure, sign up now!


  1. just enrolled-forgot about that program--we're just finishing our public library's summer reading program-we have to turn our book list in next week-gotta finish up reading what we have checked out---my son loves to read-reads everything he sees!

  2. So does my son--we're busily completing several summer reading programs too! We're generally floating in library books around here. That's the one thing I have a really hard time saying no to. Even if we're just stopping in to pick up something on reserve and I say in advance that we're not checking anything else out . . . How am I supposed to say no when they're begging for a BOOK?!?! *grin*
