You can also downoad the app from the app store on your device. You are able to register just yourself, or children as well under a single account. Follow the onscreen prompts to create your account. Once created you will be able to log books and accumulate points. Parents can log books for their children by selecting their name from the drop down menu on the left hand side. To add a title, simply click on the “log reading” button. You can earn digital badges for every 100 points you accumulate! For kids for every 100 points earned, they earn a brag tag! (1 per week). Kids can also earn points by attending virtual story time or other events and entering the “secret code”!
