Bookelicious is the only kids-first literacy motivation system -- we help students build their own reading identities and choose their own books to foster their love of reading!
Our free, gamified, research-based program empowers kids to find and choose books they actually want to read. Best of all, it works -- more than 80% of students who use Bookelicious find it easy to find books they're excited to read!
Bookelicious also provides a robust suite of tools to help educators share the joy of reading with students. Our program includes professional development, author visits, time-saving support tools, and curated collections of books for classrooms, libraries, and bookrooms.
More than 3,000 schools use Bookelicious – sign up today and find out why!
At Bookelicious, we match readers with books they truly want to read. Decades of research have identified three key levers of reading motivation.
Our book-matching system combines these elements to help kids pick books they’ll LOVE! We start with a collection of more than 25,000 books, curated with the help of nationally renowned teachers and librarians – the people who know the books that kids love.
And we incorporate these great books into our fun, gamified bookmoji system. Kids create their bookmojis and choose items that represent their interests; our AI-enabled system uses that information to suggest books they may like. How do we know it works? Before using Bookelicious, 36% of kids found it easy to find books they wanted to read. When using Bookelicious, that number jumped to 80%.
Our COPPA-compliant website is a free, fun way for kids to find books they’ll love — and educators will discover support tools for their classrooms like reading logs, writing-based activities, and shareable reading lists.
Bookelicious works with educators to build a literacy ecosystem in schools by offering professional development, author visits, book collections, and custom curated collections for classrooms, libraries, and book rooms.
Bookelicious excels at putting more books in the hands of kids and getting them excited to read them! Please contact us today to find out how we can build a custom solution for your school or district. In many cases, we can also help with alternative sources of funding, including ESSER funds, Title I funds, and Title III funds.
After three years of stagnation due to the COVID 19 pandemic and decreased budgets, classroom libraries in this district were in great need of an update. We worked with the district to apply for and utilize ESSER funds to update their classroom libraries with great new books geared towards their students’ interests.
The district wanted to deepen the home-school connection and get kids excited about books they could own and have in their homes. Our Choice and Voice program allowed all 30,000+ children in the district to choose four books from the most popular books in the market. Even better, the books were packaged and labeled by child and by classroom to make distribution easier and minimize effort required of teachers.
This district had a specific budget with ESSER funds for post-COVID social-emotional learning (SEL) initiatives. We worked with the district to finalize the ESSER proposal and deliver 22,000 SEL-focused, newly released titles that engage kids – from the cover to the final pages – to all K-5 district classrooms.
