Join the 2021 Amazing Book Challenge!

The Amazing Book Challenge encourages readers to broaden their reading interests by discovering new subjects, series or authors, something they may not have read on their own. There are twelve new themes, one for each month, for 2021.

Read or listen to one book from the month’s theme to receive a small monthly prize. Read or listen to a book from all 12 themes by December 31, 2021 to be entered into an end of the year drawing.

!  If you've already created an account in Beanstack when signing up your kids for the Winter Reading Program, you can use the same account to login and then create a reader for yourself.
