Chuck E Cheese Reading Program. Keep track of your kids book reading with the Chuck E Cheese Rewards Calendars here. Once kids have completed two weeks of reading they can bring the completed form to Chuck E Cheese for 10 FREE game tokens. Find out how you can get more free chuck e cheese tokens for the kids.
Local Libraries: Be sure to check with your local library to see what sort of summer reading program is offered. A quick search on my local library’s website helped me find out that my library offers tickets to a local water park for participating in the program!
