Free Movies & Books this Summer

I just saw a great post on the moneysavingmom blog about summer freebies that reminded me of some great ones around here we did last summer.

Half Price Books has a great program called Feed Your Brain where kids under 14 can earn a $3 gift card each week they read for at least 15 minutes per day/5 days a week during June & July. That's potentially $27 per kid! Go here for details and here to print the required reading log.

Regal Cinemas also has free movies on Tuesdays & Wednesdays at 10AM for ten weeks this summer. It's first come, first served so be sure you're on time or early! DH [Dear Husband] took Eve to a few of these last summer and they had a great father/daughter time. They show one rated G and one rated PG movie each morning. They run at the same time on different screens. Here's a schedule for Crossroads in Bellevue (where DH will be taking our DDs [Dear Daughters]). Check here to see if your neighborhood Regal Cinema is participating.

Rugrats In Paris (G)
Kung Fu Panda (PG)

Wallace and Gromit (G)
Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs (PG)

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius (G)
Monsters Vs. Aliens (PG)

Doogal (G)
Hotel For Dogs (PG)

Muppets From Space (G)
Paul Blart: Mall Cop (PG)

Muppets Take Manhattan (G)
Aliens In The Attic (PG)

Tale of Despereaux (G)
Coraline (PG)

Pirates Who Don't Do Anything (G)
Astro Boy (PG)

Charlotte's Web (G)
Planet 51 (PG)

Rugrats The Movie (G)
Ice Age: Dawn Of The Dinosaurs (PG)

DH and I try to be really careful what our DDs see, and I know some of these titles are definitely not what we would consider appropriate for our own kids. Check out their content on a rating site before assuming it's safe for your kids. Go here to see one of our favorite family-friendly review sites.
