Spring Into Reading Tips and Tricks:

Newspaper and magazine articles can count as books. Simply enter the title of the article in the book title section.

Reading a book to a child or children can count for the reader and each child.

If you have a child that loves to hear the same book over and over, you can count that book each time it’s read!
