Parents and Caregivers: While anyone can use a paper reading log, we encourage parents/caregivers of very young children to use them. Make sure to display reading logs in a special place so children can see their progress. After finishing the program (congratulations!), sign into Beanstack to record reading. Children will delight in observing you enter their progress and collect their virtual badges.

If you don’t want to use Beanstack, take logs to your local library branch to receive prizes. Looking for a log in Spanish, Korean or Arabic? Visit our Translated Logs page
