Welcome to Bookelicious!

At Bookelicious, we feed kids’ passion for reading. Our professionally curated collection of great books, plus our AI-driven, behavior-based recommendation engine, make it easy for kids to find books they love.

It’s like a personal librarian in your pocket!

The Bookelicious Solution

Reading motivation flows from three key levers: high-interest books, well-suited to a child’s reading skill, and personally chosen by the reader from a wide selection of relevant titles. Bookelicious incorporates all three levers, plus the expert knowledge of educators and reviewers, to promote successful, motivated reading.

Personal Relevance

Bookelicious recommends high-interest books on topics kids are excited about. Children who find reading materials interesting are more motivated to read, and read with greater comprehension.


We offer a multitude of books that satisfy each reader’s individual interests. Offering children a choice increases their time spent reading and their sense of being “in charge.”

High-Quality Books

Our expert network of teachers and librarians guide our recommendations, as well as user-generated popularity ratings. Every book featured on Bookelicious has been curated by an educator.

Gamification and Engagement

Our bookmojis have their own special pets and accessories that enable users to express their individuality, convey information about their interests, develop their reading identities and engage with a community of readers.

A Virtuous Circle

Bookelicious matches children with a personalized selection of books, thereby supporting reading motivation, which in turn improves literacy.

Book Access

Bookelicious is committed to providing book access to all students. We approach this goal in several ways.

  • We make books available for sale to families and educators to help build home and classroom libraries.
  • On every book detail page on our site, we link to WorldCat, to enable families to find our books in their local libraries.
  • We partner with the Bring Me a Book Foundation. Bring Me a Book is dedicated to bringing books (and book cubbies!) into the homes of children in underserved communities.
