Babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and children up the age 12 or sixth grade reading level! Children too young to read by themselves are welcome to participate by having a parent or caretaker sign them up and read to them.
Can I count books that I read on my computer or e-reader?
Of course! It’s all the same to us.
Can I count audiobooks and videos?
Yes, you can!
Can I join the program after its official start date?
Yes, you can! And if you can remember any reading that you’ve done after the official start date, you’re welcome to go back and count that.
Can I count reading that I’ve done before the official start date?
Sorry, but you may not count reading you’ve done before the official dates of the program.
