Whenever we start talking about the glory days of Pizza Hut at the radio station, someone always mentions how they did the Book IT! Program and got their own Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizza.

Well, let me tell you, Pizza Hut's pizza is still really good. Several weeks ago we did a station outing to the Sedalia Pizza Hut and had a fantastic lunch chowing down on their Big New Yorker Pizza and more. Not to mention, no one does a pan pizza quite like Pizza Hut.

Now I have even more good news for you. The young ones in your life can still score free Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizzas just by being part of Pizza Hut's Book IT! Program.

While the Book IT! Program is something teachers can get their students involved in during the school year, you can get your kids involved in Camp Book IT! this summer. The program is open to kids in PreK through grade 6. Mom and or Dad set the goals, keep track of their kids' reading progress online, and when they've reached their goal they get a free Pizza Hut Personal Pan Pizza.

Your kids can read almost anything too. Books, magazines, e-books, anything fun.

The Book IT! Program is the longest-running corporate-supported reading program. It was started in 1984, and these days parents and teachers who were part of the program back in the 1980s and 1990s are getting their kids and students involved.

Unfortunately, I was a little too old to participate in the Book IT! Program myself. But the fond memories of the program shared by some of my slightly younger friends and co-workers make me think this is a must-do program for families.

Not to mention, what kid wouldn't want their very own pizza every month all summer long?

You can learn more about Pizza Hut's Book IT! Program and even get your family set up for Camp Book IT! here.
