We encourage families to read together, so the adult has a very important role as 'Account Creator' when tracking with Beanstack. Under your account, all readers in your family unit will be found and can be accessed by one login and password. The adult can choose to log their reading in this program with the rest of their family.

 

Beanstack Computer and Mobile
