Created by a mom who was inspired to increase reading time in her own family, BookWhiz solves the problem many parents face: creating order out of chaos, for all the children's books scattered throughout the house or shoved into shelves to gather dust and be forgotten.
BookWhiz is a unique and convenient tool to manage children's reading. First, by organizing all books by title and cover art in a virtual family library for visual reference at your fingertips. Secondly, by keeping track of each child’s reading sessions, providing valuable insights to what books are getting read, how much time is being spent, and leaving none neglected. And third, by rewarding readers for their efforts which encourages them to invest the time.
“Reading is core to childhood development and learning,” says BookWhiz founder, Andra Davidson. “But parents realize it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get their kids to choose a book over all the other distractions. By creating a rewards system that excites & encourages young readers, BookWhiz inspires kids to get back to the joy of reading books.”
Want kids to read more? That's the idea.
BookWhiz was specifically designed to make reading more fun by rewarding young readers for spending their time turning pages, as well as helping them learn important organizational skills. The free app also encourages kids to learn about saving and purchasing power—by earning points for custom rewards, redeemed from their parents.
Using the BookWhiz iPad app as their new reading companion, your kids can:
- organize all of their books in one easy-to-access, virtual library
- keep track of their reading time
- create & download detailed reading logs
- inspire good reading habits by earning rewards
- earn cool badges for reaching milestones
According to a recent report by Nielsen, “Last year, U.S. consumers bought 226 million children’s print books, with moms leading the charge to the register. According to Nielsen BookScan, the 2014 sales represent a 13% increase from 2013.”
“That’s good news for both parents and educators,” adds Davidson. “We are excited that books are being bought, and BookWhiz will help to get them read. We’re very excited to share BookWhiz with families everywhere, encouraging your readers to pick up a book and pick up a great habit for life!”
