Book Adventure: A Reading Site for Kids


I am always on the lookout for fun sites for kids. Book Adventure is one that I think most parents will like, as will their kids. 


Here is the blurb on the website:


"Book Adventure is a fun, free way to motivate your child to read! Kids in grades K-8 can find a book, take quizzes on what they've read, and earn prizes for their reading success. Start your reading adventure"

One of the features I really like on this site is that kids can make their own book lists. I love goodreads.com and love keeping track of my books. Here is what it says the kids can do...

Create and save your own Booklists!

Login to your account and select "My Booklists" where you can create new booklists. You can create a one for Mysteries or Animals or titles by your favorite author or any combination you desire. Once a booklist is created, you can add more books, delete books or delete the booklist completely.


Another fun feature is that your child can take quizzes on books they have read.

"Take a quiz on any of the nearly 8,000 books on Book Adventure to earn points toward the prizes you can find in the Prize Library! Search by title, author last name, or ISBN to find quizzes for the books you’ve read. The quizzes for kindergarten – grade 2 books will have five (5) questions; grade 3 and up books will have ten (10) questions."


There are three different ways that you can join the site:
-As a child
-As an Educator
-As a Parent


I joined as a teacher and I have been impressed with the resources available to me. I can create quizzes and booklists just for my class to log in and do.

One last thing I wanted to share with you is a booklist I found on the site. This list is a "Back to School" list for each grade.
