Are you ready to build a better world? You can read and record from June 21-August 12. Log into Wandoo Reader, choose an avatar, and then read and record books to earn points and level up! When registering your child, please note that the Easy, Medium and Hard difficulty levels are roughly related to K-1st / 2nd-3rd grade / 4th- 5th grade, respectively.
