2021 Daytona Tortugas Summer Reading Program

Shelldon and the superintendent have set a goal for local students to read 1 million minutes in the Summer Home Run Reading Program, and you can help reach that goal while winning awesome prizes! Readers who read their way around the bases will earn the following prizes:

- Batters Up (30 minutes of reading): Shelldon baseball card!

- First Base (120 minutes of reading): Wendy's prize!

- Second base (210 minutes of reading): Marco's Pizza prize!

- Third base (300 minutes of reading): Dave & Buster's prize!

- Home run (390 minutes of reading): Get a free ticket to a Daytona Tortugas game and be recognized in front of thousands of fans at Jackie Robinson Ballpark!

Keep track of the minutes that you read using our printable reading logs for kids and parents. Once home run level (at least 390 minutes) is achieved, parents/guardians should submit their child's information below to receive prizes.


The prize distribution process will be determined based on current health and safety guidelines at that time.

Hey, kids! Shelldon wants to know what you’re reading this summer. Create a virtual book review to tell him all about your favorite books!

Parents/Guardians: Post a photo or short video on Facebook or Twitter of your child presenting their book review. Be sure to tag @daytonatortugas and use the hashtag #386Reads!

Resources for Reading Material

For students looking for reading material, Shelldon suggests visiting your local public library. In addition, he has selected some of his favorite books on the Epic! digital library. Ask your teacher to share the collection “Daytona Tortugas - Shelldon's Shell-ebration of Reading” with you.
