Kids Reading Club
raintreekidss

There are certain books that can be read by all students in grades 1 through 12 according to their level. Most of these books are related with the historical consciousness and universal values. There are on average 20-30 books in each grade. These books are selected in compliance with the level of the students. With this regard, there are certain books that each student has to read within one year. A student can reach the library which is in accord with her grade by using given password and username, and can take the test of the books she has read; so that she can see her success throughout the US in her grade. In this sense, it can be said that the "www.kitapokuyorum.org" is the first Turkish online library and book-reading system.
