FAQs
 

We do not have books on the website for kids to read.  On Biblionasium, children can rate, review, and recommend books to their community. They can also log their reading and participate in reading challenges. However, due to copyright, students will need to obtain the books from other sources.  

Beyond school and public libraries, we recommend that you review the following sources to consider recommending to your students for reading books online:

Project Gutenberg – A library of over 60,000 free e-books in the public domain

Overdrive a resource where you can download e-books and audiobooks for free if you have a library card 

Unite for Literacyfree digital picture books for kids

Destiny educators should manage groups through Destiny if:

  • Groups, homerooms, and teachers need to reflect exactly what is set up in the Destiny back end
  • Edits, adding, and removing data are done through Destiny and not Biblionasium

Destiny educators should manage groups through Biblionasium if you need to:

  • Add new group(s) that are not needed in Destiny (book clubs, special classes, etc.)
  • Add additional educators to any group
  • Move students between groups with ease (without needing to re-sync data)
  • Allow students to join a group using a unique group code

“Lily to the Rescue” Review Contest Winner

 
 
 

Do you remember reading unputdownable book series as a kid? Wouldn’t it be thrilling to meet the author of those books?

When a kid gets hooked on a book series, that feeling can make them excited to read more and more books. Introducing the first book in a series is a great way to get kids reading for fun and reading consistently

We are delighted to present the book review that won a classroom Q & A with beloved author W. Bruce Cameron. Check out excerpts from the winning review and other great reviews from Biblionasium‘s Lily to the Rescue Book Review Contest below!

“Because of Winn-Dixie” Review Contest Winners

 
 

To encourage independent reading, librarians and teachers look to build a community of readers. What better way to build that community than by writing and sharing book reviews

Writing a review encourages students to reflect on what they’ve read, and when they share the review on Biblionasium, it lets other students see what their friends are reading! 

These reasons and many others are why we continue to encourage students to write book reviews with our Kid Review Contests. Check out the excerpts from some of the winning reviews from our Because of Winn-Dixie 20th Anniversary Book Review Contest below!
