Barrington Books is once again challenging kids to read this summer.
It's the second annual Summer Reading Challenge, with a theme this year of "Fly a Kite."
The bookstore will give away a free book to any child who reads 10 books between now and Aug. 24 – when the competition ends, said Jennifer Massotti, store manager.
"Just as flying a kite high in the sky can take you away to imaginary worlds of fluffy clouds and mythical bird kingdoms," said Massotti, so too can a great book."
Entry forms with suggested reading selections are available in the store in the Barrington Shopping Plaza. No purchase is necessary to participate, she said.
For more information, email Massotti at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the store at 245-7925.
