Bookopolis provides a safe and fun online place for elementary and middle school students to connect with other young readers about books and reading. Teachers and librarians can use Bookopolis to help build a community of readers in their classroom. Students can connect with friends to share book reviews and swap book recommendations. Students can also practice persuasive writing, comprehension, and typing skills by completing reviews, reports, and reading logs online. Educators can sign up with a “teacher” account and then set up one or more classes and accounts for their students. While the main goal is to ignite a lifelong love of reading, the features and activities on the site also align to several Common Core reading and writing standards for students in grades 2–7.
