You can move at your pace. The program was designed for flexibility. The book logging feature will be available until late spring/early summer so you and your child can decide how many books are read in that time period.
You can set up Challenger accounts for each of your children within your account whether they’re involved at school or not. Simply associate one child to the participating classroom and leave additional children’s classroom fields blank.

The program is absolutely free.
