Our team creates high-quality reading challenges for every month of the year and runs national reading challenges every winter and summer. Keep your school or library community engaged in growing their reading habits all year, and let us do the work.
Beanstack’s reading challenge templates are timely, engaging, and tailored for readers of all ages. Topics run the gamut from Back to School and Teacher Appreciation to Read Woke and Women’s History Month.
