How to join

The Summer Book Club is open to kids ages 5 to 14. Children may read some or all of the books on our list.

To join the club, a parent or guardian must register the child. To do that, fill out a form at or send the information to KidsPost Summer Book Club, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071.

Every child who is registered will receive a beautiful bookmark designed by Kerry O’Hare, 11, of Fairfax Station. At the end of the summer, we’ll publish the names of all the club’s members in KidsPost. Your parents should indicate when they register if they do not want your name printed in the paper.
