How To Set Up a Second Reader Profile

With Bookbot you can easily set up profiles for more than one child in the same account. Here’s how to do it. 

You don’t need to be on the same device to add a new profile, as long as you are signed in under the same account. Log into your Bookbot account with your email. Once you are logged in, click on the Bookbot avatar and click on the Settings button.

Next, choose your child’s reading level. The levels range from A to F and start from relatively easy to read sentences and progress to more complex sentences. You can determine what reading level your child is at by getting them to read the examples aloud and based on where your child starts to experience challenges, ideally go one level back from that point. Otherwise you could simply start from level A and allow your child to progress through the reading levels despite their reading proficiency. You also have the option to change this after setting up your reader’s profile.

After you have selected a reading level, click next.
