Track Your Reading with READsquared

We’re offering a new reading tracking system- READsquared, so that participants in our various challenges (Summer Reading, 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, Minute Madness, etc.) can record their reading to earn virtual badges and share their reading with others.

How to Get Started

  • If you participated in 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, and have an active account on our previous tracking software (Beanstack), your information may have been successfully transferred – please try to log in with your existing username and the Forgot Your Password link.
  • If you need to establish a new account on READsquared, follow this link You only need to register once for an account, then the system remembers you from year to year.
  • You can register your whole family under one log-in/password — an adult caregiver creates the account and then adds each child who is participating. Tweens can create an individual account and independently record their reading.
