    The categories for the reading completion levels are so cute with their “spring” theme!

    Prizes for other age groups sound cool, but pre-teens get earbuds? Those don't sound very appealing.

    This was a great way to log the books I read and use my free time. The activities were creative and very fun to complete.

    This sounds like a great challenge! I am wondering though, how exactly do we win the prizes? Do we just get all the badges?

    Thank you for question. The prize for completion for each age group is an entry into a grandprize drawing. Winners will be alerted at the conclusion of the program. For our Pre-Readers completion is 4 books and 1 badge ( 4 activities) and for all other groups (Readers, Pre-Teens, Teens and adults) completion is 4 hours of reading and 1 badge (4 activities).
