    I’ve been trying to sign my
    Daughter up but do not see a link. What is your sign up process?

    I apologize, but I don’t know where else to post this. We attended the Tuesday morning event today, and during the announcements I learned about the difference between Comments and Reviews on the summer reading log. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones who had been recording all the children’s comments in the comment section rather than using the Submit Review button, which wasn’t very visible until now. The problem is that with the revised page, all of my children’s comments have been deleted and I cannot copy and paste them into the Review sections. Were all those texts permanently deleted? Can I still access them? It would be nearly impossible now to recall all they had to say about each book. Will they still receive credit for reading hours if no reviews are submitted? Please advise.

      So sorry about the confusion. I did turn the comment section back on so you can access your reviews. Just cut and paste into the review section. The change in format this year caught me by surprise.
