We love reading in this house, and in fact, Freddie has enjoyed books long before he could read. Yes I know we are blessed. But I am still always on the lookout for fun ways to encourage reading, and for the summer months, I have created this book bingo. We actually play it all the time and there is a printout of it in his bedroom. As soon as he gets “bingo” he gets a prize. But I will explain more about that later.

Book Bingo game perfect for getting the kids reading more!

Book Bingo Prizes!

We just love to make a challenge out of things, so this game is a perfect time to get even more books! There are a number of ways to win:

5 in a row – Of course the traditional BINGO – if he gets 5 in a row he gets to chose a book to buy from Amazon.

All the books round the edge of the board – He gets to buy a book of his choosing, plus $10 Amazon voucher to spend on what he wants!

All of the books! – This will take some time, but when he has read all of the books on the book bingo, the prize is a book of his choosing, plus a $25 Amazon gift voucher!

Being a homeschool mom, any excuse to buy more books is a bonus, especially if they are books he actually wants to read!
