Awards and Kind Words was the Cyberbee Web Pick for November 15, 2008: We all know kids are better motivated to write when it’s for their peers, right? So, try out BookHooks and introduce your younger students to a place where they can share their book reports with other readers in a safe environment. All of the reports are vetted before publication and no student data is collected. The tool for writing a report employs java technology, so make sure the web browser is compatible.... more

Thank you to Colleen O'Connell of HarperCollins Publishers who emailed to say:

"I recently came across your site and now I'm a daily visitor! My personal love for books combined with my knowledge of publishing from working in the industry makes it easy for me to spot books sites that go above and beyond the call of duty. I would like to say thank you for doing just that! It's always a pleasure to find sites like yours which encourage kids to read as a hobby and not treat reading like a boring subject covered in English class. Thank you for the wonderful site..."


Your site is a fantastic tool for kids who not only love reading, but want instant gratification as writers and illustrators. My son is excited to use your tools and have a published opinion, especially once he found out no one had reviewed this book yet!

Many thanks!
