Summer Reading Incentives

Does anyone have ideas for summer reading incentives? My school is low-income. We want to encourage summer reading but need a way to make it more motivating and/or effective. Any ideas?

Barnes and Noble has a summer reading challenge. I think they read any 8 books and tell why they liked it and can get a free book from Barnes and Noble

We are low income too, but the principal is springing for pizza for the 1st graders who read 6 books over the summer. (we have a Little Caesars that $5 a pizza). If she didn't have the money, I was planning on having lunch with the kids in my class, which they currently earn for completing homework all week. We play music or short Pixar clips, and they love it! My other though was a certificate, and have the principal read their names over the loudspeaker for morning announcements. Hope that helps!

Theme Day

We do a theme day. For example, Dr. Seuss, and there will be games and activities to go with the theme. All totally free. My question would be, do the kids have access to books over the summer? My current school is not low income, but I've been at a low income school before. Our biggest hurdle was access over the summer. They didn't have the money to be going to Barnes and Noble or Amazon. As for the library, there were several but none of them close to our area so transportation (no car, compounded by long transit times on public transportation) and time (working parents, some working multiple jobs) were both an issue.
