This website is part library, part reading log, part social networking site!
Kids can log on and create a virtual bookshelf that will keep track of what books they have read. They can also search books and add one they want to read to their bookshelf. Students can also interact with classmates and share book recommendations with each other. The interface is really bright, colorful and easy to use.
Parents can search for books at their child’s reading level as well as for ones on subjects their child is interested in. Parents can also set goals and challenges for their young reader and even assign a small prize for them to receive upon completion of those goals.
Teacher can tailor book lists for individual students and create programs by group, class or grade for students. BilioNasuim also makes reading logs obsolete, parents and teachers no longer need to keep up with log sheets because they can access them at any time on this site. The site makes it easy for parents and teachers to track of each individual child’s reading progress.
I think this site makes keeping track of reading logs and communicating with parents on reading progress really simple- it also gives parents a greater opportunity to be included and aware of their child’s reading level and how to pick appropriate books.
Children will be excited by the social nature of the site as well as being able to search and store books they are interested in, I think this site could be great for getting kids fired up to read!
