A Message from our CEO

As the US advances through the World Cup, GUWB’s Summer Reading and Reach-a-Reader Programs push forward as well.  With our Summer Reading Program, we are providing a quick and easy way for parents to continue their children reading over the summer with a little cream ($10 gift card to Dairy Queen).  Who doesn’t like ice cream over the summer; by the way, it was 99 degrees today at our warehouse.  We like ice cream.

Our other unique program, Reach-a-Reader, is geared for those who don’t have children, know someone who has children, or simply needs a little extra cash in their pocket.  Simply "refer a reader" to GUWB, have that subscriber remain active for 3 months and we’ll send you $5.  Refer as many as you’d like, they remain active for 3 months, and we will continue sending you $5; it goes a long way in today’s economy.  Reach out to family and friends and let them know about our Summer Reading and Reach-a-Reader Programs.  

As the summer moves forward, take the chance to spend as much time as possible with your children.  Play with them, sit down and talk with them, and most importantly; read with them.

Thanks and "Read On!"

A "World Cup SCORE" with Summer Reading at GUWB!

 Summer Reading Program!
World Cup Soccer is almost here!  We know Team USA will do their best to kick goals and win matches.  We want you to get a "kick" out of reading this summer and "win" with Grow Up with Books Summer Reading Program!  

This is our first summer at Grow Up With Books. As we look back over the past few months we have helped many families grow with reading.  This summer we want to continue to foster that same love of reading with our GUWB Reading Log.  It’s very simple.  Subscribers old and new during the months of June, July, and August will receive a reading log in the mail.  As you read Grow Up with Books titles, jot them down on this handy form.  Parents sign off that the reading is complete and send the form to Grow Up with Books with their next "book return mailer."  Once your log is received and noted on our Reading Blog we will mail you a special $10.00 gift card that you can use at a Dairy Queen near you!    

This summer you might want to take another look at our website.  We provide even more than just great books and a summer reading incentive.  We also want to hear your questions about reading development and your child.  Our Reading Consulting Team is here to answer whatever questions you have about reading development, book suggestions for your child, similar authors…you name it!  Just send your questions to and we will answer with a personal email directly to you.

The GUWB staff will be watching Team USA take on England at the World Cup Soccer games on June 12.  We want you to get in the game, too!  Everyone can win with Summer Reading and Grow Up with Books!  

World Cup and Reading Ready...
