Who can participate? 
Babies, toddlers, preschoolers, children, and teens! Children who are too young to read by themselves can participate with an adult. Parents or caretakers are welcome to sign young children up and read to them.

How do I create a family account?
If you are a parent or guardian and would like to create a family account to manage your children's accounts, simply follow the directions to create an account for yourself, then follow the prompts to register your children. If you have already created an account for yourself, log in and click on the "Account" button on the top menu of your screen, then select "Add Child Account." If your child also already has an account, select "Link Existing Account."
