Should Parents Reward Children for Reading/Learning Over the Summer?

Here's a question. There are many bridge books designed to keep students readings and learning during the summer.

As part of the book, the parent and the child agree the child will complete or read so many pages a day. And, in exchange for completing the project the child receives an agreed upon reward, toy, video game, etc.

 

Is this a good idea, should parents use the lure of a prize/reward to encourage reading/learning?
