A little bit about us!

Bookelicious inspires kids to discover the joy of reading by pairing them with books they LOVE! Bookelicious.com uses a gamified approach to match readers with a curated collection of topic-specific, high-quality, age-appropriate books at the right level of difficulty. Our site makes recommended books easily accessible by offering them for sale as well as linking to local libraries. We promote literacy by encouraging children to feed their read.

Bookelicious has also developed special tools for teachers, students and parents/caregivers that encourage deep engagement with the site and track reading progress, including fun, book-themed games and activities. This level of home-school integration has become even more vital as schools incorporate distance learning into their programs. We also offer special collections that celebrate diversity and promote social-emotional learning, to meet the needs of educators and families.
