For Kids Ages 5-12: School Days Reading Challenge

School Days Reading Challenge logo
Read & log along with us during the school year (September-May).  Logging badges are awarded each week for reading 20 minutes a day for all 35 weeks!  Why not use the built in reading timer to help you stay on track and record your minutes!  Invite your friends and classmates by using the Friend Code and create your own community of readers. Complete at least 1 activity each month of the school year to receive each month's activity badge. You can complete the challenge by completing all 5,000 minutes. If you don't get your reading done one week, don't worry, logging badges are cumulative and you can catch up the following week!

For Teens Ages 13-18: 100 Books Before Graduation

Read 100 books before graduating, log your reading in Beanstack, and earn a new set of badges!  This is an on-going challenge for teens from 13-18.  No time frame - you complete it when your 100 books are done. You may join other monthly challenges along with this one and your books will be recorded in both. Have fun! This challenge begins on September 1.
