Just ask an adult to make a username and password and sign up for the age-appropriate log: 0-4 years old, 5-12 years old.  Enter your titles as you read to earn points and new badges. You will also have access to title suggestions and fun mini-games.  The more books you read, the more times you will be entered into the raffle at the end of the summer!  Just a reminder that there will be no paper reading logs this year.
