Zoobean for Kids

There is a part of me that lights up when my son tells me he needs a new book. I love that my children have a thirst for knowledge and reading, it feels like a parenting victory!

That said, it isn’t always easy to find great books and educational apps for kids. There is so much junk to wade through (especially in the app store, yikes), that the process can become a headache instead of the joy it should be.

Enter Zoobean.

When you sign up for an account at Zoobean, an expert curates apps, books, and literacy resources for your child. Sounds pretty good, right?

It’s Zoobean’s mission to encourage literacy and help parents give their kids a head start. They know that every kid is different, and one app or book doesn’t always work for all. As the mother of two very quirky, unique and special kids, I know that’s the truth!

When you sign up for Zoobean you answer a series of questions about your child which creates an individual profile that highlights their age, likes, dislikes and even reading level.

Then, the Zoobean experts, who happen to be parents, educators, and librarians too, recommend high-quality apps and books just for your kid!

The recommendations are available to you at any time through your child’s “SmartList” and include reading guides with each selection. Or, like me, you enjoy the pre-made kits that provide ready-made units around specific topics and themes.

For instance, Evan is a huge dinosaur fan. Not only was there a wonderful dinosaur kit available that was filled with wonderful book and app recommendations, I also received some specific book selections from my expert. It’s funny, because she was able to locate some dinosaur books that are new to us, and that’s no small feat—Evan is obsessed with dinosaur books and we have a large collection already!

The home service is also a nice option and with this selection, your child receives a book by mail each month.
