Reading Logs and the Summer Reading Challenge
Print off the official Brazos reading log and checklist-version of the summer reading list to help your child track their progress. At the end of the summer, we’ll give away prizes for our most prolific readers, but also celebrate kids at every level of participation. Completed reading logs can be turned in anytime all summer and kids can fill out as many as they want! It is my hope that kids and teens--from reluctant readers to avid bookworms--will find that they can take part and find success as more empowered readers!

ARC Review Program - Ages 8-18
The ARC (Advanced Readers Copy) Review program is designed for readers aged 8-18. This is a free program that allows students to take home advanced copies of books and review them for our store, newsletter, and website! This program is not strictly for summer, but we’re kicking it off along with our other summer initiatives. Fill out the registration form, bring it to the store, and choose an ARC based on the child’s age group. They can write as many reviews as they want and turn them in on the official submission form.

BTAB (Brazos Teen Advisory Board) - Ages 12-18
The Brazos Teen Advisory Board, which will run for the duration of next school year, is a great opportunity for teens age 12-18 to take on a deeper role in the store. We’ll be accepting applications all summer and will make decisions at the end of August. This is a great opportunity for passionate teen readers to learn about bookselling, write features for our website, and volunteer with in-store events.
