Whole Foods Market Bethesda is excited to announce Bethesda's Whole Summer of Reading, its first ever Kids’ Summer Reading Program!

Program is open to all kids from babies to those entering the eighth grade this fall. Staring June 17th, pick up an official Reading Program Journal from our store and record all of the books that each child reads or has read to them between June 17th and September 8th.

Every ten books read earns the child a reward (a cookie or a piece of fruit), a star our on Summer Reading Program Progress Chart, and an entry into a weekly drawing for great prizes. Additionally, the child that has the highest number of books at the end of the summer wins a pizza and cupcake party on the WFM Bethesda patio for the winner and ten friends. And we will have weekly storytimes all summer long on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m.!

We will kick it off on June 17th with a big party in our store from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
