Keep your girls away from electronics and get them into books to sharpen their reading skills and keep them happily entertained while away from school. American Girl’s Read-a-palooza, a summer reading program created for girls ages 8 to 12, is packed with fun activities and incentives that encourage literacy. Read-a-palooza takes place May 1 to September 3, 2012, and also includes a charitable partnership with Save the Children’s U.S. literacy program.
To participate in Read-a-palooza, girls can visit americangirl.com/reading, where they can download colorful bookmarks and free book-related content, such as tips and materials for starting a book club. They’ll also be able to do reading challenges and take fun, interactive quizzes. Starting in June, girls can participate in Read-a-palooza by visiting an American Girl retail store, where free reading events will be offered all summer long.
To further emphasize the importance of reading and to help a great cause during its Read-a-palooza campaign, American Girl is partnering with Save the Children’s U.S. literacy program. From May 1 through September 3, 2012, $1 of every book purchased through American Girl (up to a maximum of $100,000) will support Save the Children’s efforts to raise literacy rates in impoverished communities by providing basic education and equipping schools and teachers with reading materials. In addition, American Girl will make its third donation of books to Save the Children this fall, bringing the value of the company’s total book donation to nearly $1.5 million.

Thanks Michele! We love AMERICAN GIRL, too!
My daughter loves American Girl and she is really into being immersed in a book right now. Summer is just around the corner and with school letting out she’s going to have extra time on her hands. What a great way to fill her time and keep her mind active.
With American Girl it’s always a win win! Remember if you want to enter giveaway to send me an email with your name and address.

My first grade girl is reading chapter books – these would be great to fill up her summer – she’s an avid reader (just like her mommy)!
Yes it would! Thanks for entering and good luck.
I have 3 young granddaughters who love to read. The 9 year old is reading on a level of most 9th graders. She would absolutely love to read these books. Thank you for hosting this giveaway.
Sounds ideal. Thanks for stopping by the blog!
My 10 year old daughter loves to read. She was asked the other day, “What do you like that most other kids your age don’t?” Her response was “Reading.” I loved it. On top of that, she loves anything to do with American Girl. She even reads some of the American Girl books to her younger sister who is just learning to read.
I know just how your daughter feels. So glad you’ve checked out our blog and entered the giveaway.
I would love this for my two daughters for our family road trip this summer. I read American Girl books when I was growing up.
Wish they’d been around when I was growing up as I’d have devoured them! Good luck! Make sure to

My granddaughters would love to read these books. They have their very own American Girl doll. : )

Thanks for the giveaway! My daughter is just learning about American Girl Dolls and would love reading these when she gets a little older.
Sounds like a good fit! Good luck and thanks for checking us out.
Our girls love to read. I fear if they win this contest, we might not see them all summer as they’ll lock themselves in their room to escape with their prizes and imaginations. But we’ll take our chances anyway….
Thanks for entering this terrific giveaway. Lotsa good luck.
Thanks for the great giveaway! I love to spend the summer reading and hope the girls will too! 🙂
I hope your girls do too whether or not they win. I remember reading Gone With The Wind one summer when I was a girl.
