On Your Mark, Get Set… Read! Summer of Numbers 2016

Summer of Numbers makes it easy to add a little math to your library’s summer reading program:

  • Libraries hand out fun charts and star stickers along with summer reading logs.
  • Bedtime Math posts a new math problem every night on our website and our free app.
  • Every time kids do a Bedtime Math problem, they add another star to their chart.
  • At the end of the summer, kids bring their charts back to the library for a prize!

It’s that easy! Want to hear what others think? Read testimonials from pioneering librarians who helped launch Summer of Numbers in 2013!

A word about incentives…
And by the way, we definitely recommend that you offer kids an incentive for doing Summer of Numbers, whether it’s our frisbee, another prize, or just the chance to have their constellations posted on a library wall. Our pilot showed that a reward makes kids much more likely to try Summer of Numbers – and that’s our goal!
