Jump in a space ship and shoot to the stars! Feed Your Brain and fuel the power of your imagination this summer. As we wrap up another school year, kids have their minds on summer vacation. However, it’s important to preserve the knowledge learned in the classroom this past school year to avoid the dreaded “summer slide.” The Half Price Books Feed Your Brain summer reading program is a great way to keep young minds active and make reading fun. 

Half Price Books will launch its annual Feed Your Brain summer reading program with its Biggest Storytime of the Summer, an annual all-store storytime, which takes place Sunday, June 2, 2019, at 2 p.m. local time at all locations.  This year’s Half Price Books Feed Your Brain summer reading program, themed “Out of this World,” will celebrate the 50thanniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
