Reading every night before bedtime has been a tradition in our family since my children were born.  Every evening my children pick two books for mom and dad to read to them while we snuggle up together in bed.  However, in the summer, I like to up the ante and encourage my children participate in one or more Free Summer Reading Programs for Kids.  Some programs are local, while others are nationwide.
