If you are looking for a fun fresh way to keep your little readers engaged and reading-BookBoard is a perfect solution.

Bookboard’s goal is to create motivated readers, and we do this by re-imagining story time for today’s digital age. As kids read, they’re rewarded by unlocking new books to add to their collections. This will encourage your kids will keep coming back to unlock the next story again and again.
