Your Kids Can Earn Money Reading This Summer

As a kid, I loved spending time reading chapter books and getting lost in them.
I feel pretty lucky that both my girls show a strong interest in reading and both did very well on their report cards in that subject.
I think its very important to encourage reading over the summer months so they don't lose that love of reading.
Every summer since our oldest was in Junior Kindergarten, I would enrol our kids in Summer Reading programs with the local library.
The kids had to read a certain amount of books by the end of the summer and once they completed they received a little toy from a treasure box.
This year we are going to try something a little different.
I found out about this amazing program TD Canada Trust has set up that encourages both Reading and Saving for children in grades K - 5.
TD will deposit $10 into a new or existing Savings Account for your child when they have read 10 books.
How amazing is that?!
It couldn't have come at a better time either because we are just starting to teach our girls, ages 5 & 7, about savings - but more on that in another post!
You can find out more about this awesome program here.
