HOW IT WORKS
Read 1000 books with your child from birth to age 5.
• Log each book, or you can scan the book’s ISBN code.
• If you read a few books at a time, you can enter those at once.
• For every 100 books you log, you’ll earn a badge on Beanstack and a prize sticker to pick up at your next library visit.
• When you finish 1000 books, come back with your child to choose a free book!
Repeat readings of books are counted.
