Family Stories Reading Challenge

Time to gather ‘round! November is Family Stories Month, when we celebrate our histories and stories passed down from generations. Tales of laughter, adventure, and love can carry us through the years. Record your own origin story, listen to stories from loved ones, and read books about families of all shapes and sizes. Log your reading and activities to earn badges throughout the challenge.

To Participate:

  • Kids should be between ages 5 and 12. 
  • Create a FREE account through Beanstack
