Raise a Super Reader

How It Works

Parents can sign up their children for the online Super Reader program by registering online using Beanstack. Participants are encouraged to keep track of all the books they have read to their children through Beanstack. However, the program follows an honor system for those parents who may not have complete access to the website or its app. 

Participants will earn badges depending on the number of books read. They are as follows:

  • 25 Books Read
  • 50 Books Read
  • 75 Books Read
  • 100 Books Read
  • Each Additional 100 Books Read

Once a child earns a badge, he or she is eligible for a prize. The goal is to have participants read as many as 350 books in a year. Prizes for this program are distributed through the Roswell Public Library.

What is The Super Reader Program?

The Super Reader program is designed for children between the ages of pre-school and third grade, and is held during the Library's annual Summer Reading Program time period.

Through research conducted in the report, Becoming a Nation of Readers: A Report by The Commission of Reading, we understand that the best way to prepare a child for success in reading is to read to them. The Super Reader program is designed to encourage parents to read aloud to their children.

Why Should I Raise a Super Reader?

The Super Reader program is intended to ensure children go to school prepared to learn. The program is based on early childhood research that embraces the idea that parents are a child’s first teacher. The program encourages children to reach milestones in child development in the following areas:

  • Cognition and general knowledge
  • Social and emotional development
  • Approaches to learning
  • Language and literacy skills
