School’s Out and Reading’s In!

50 Summer Steals from Open Road Media Every child and even most parents look forward to those lazy days of summer—mornings that are a little less hectic and homework-free evenings mean more time to enjoy each other. However, before we all get too complacent, educators warn us to beware of the “summer slide.” With several weeks out of school, virtually all kids will experience some setbacks in reading this summer, and teachers and students will likely spend at least the first month of school regaining lost ground. So whether you’re planning a relaxing staycation or an elaborate travel itinerary—make sure you pack some books into your schedule to keep your child’s reading level in tact. To make it easy and inexpensive, Open Road Media is offering a great deal on ebooks, with prices starting at just 99 cents. For a limited time only (June 28th – July 12th) readers can instantly download more than fifty titles, adult and children’s alike, specially priced across participating retailers. 
Children’s titles include wonderful classics like The Boxcar Children and Franklin Rides a Bike. But, there’s plenty for the grown ups to read too! Literature, thrillers, sports, spiritual… there’s an ebook for everyone. Your biggest problem this summer might be fighting to get your hands on your ereader. Visit the Open Road Media site with your kids and check out the interactive map, linking readers to the setting of their book—a fun and educational activity at home or on the road. In addition, you’ll find daily videos with behind-the-scenes details about your favorite authors, and a 1000-work excerpt of the day that will help you choose from the many, many titles available for sale. Go to www.50summersteals.com or www.openroadmedia.com to start reading. WHAT: www.50summersteals.com Summer Reading Promotion WHEN: June 28 – July 12
