United Way has teamed up with 7-Eleven at 300 S. Freedom Blvd. in Provo to let children borrow books and when they're read and returned, kids are given a free balloon or free Slurpee! The read a book, earn a Slurpee program has only be going for a few week and is becoming very popular!
Customer Sherry Murray says,"We come here and get a couple of books and read them with the girls. It's good for them to take it back to a different grown up and re-tell the story. Then they earn a Slurpee or a balloon and they love it. They really look forward to it."
The end goal is to get kids to decide that reading a book is even sweeter than drinking a Slurpee.
