A) Select a category or genre and give your child a number goal to shoot for. Note: If you select the “All” category, this is the most generic and easiest challenge. Your child will be able to choose their own books and get credit for the challenge as long as they reach the set number.

B) Choose a specific book or set of books. Click on “Add,” and a search bar will appear. From there you can select as many books as you want.

Step 5: Select an end date for the challenge (choosing a deadline is optional, you can elect to leave this blank). Please note that you cannot change the challenge end date once that date has passed, so choose carefully. Also, make sure to note the date you created the challenge, as this will determine which logs will count toward it.
