Badge Books build a foundation for independent reading.

Interactive Reading Companions Delivered Monthly.

Badge Books were developed to motivate kids to read more by making reading enjoyable. We designed each book with fun activities that help them reach a set of reading goals.

The books work hand-in-hand with our free Beanstack Mobile App, available on Android and iOS. As your child tracks reading in the app, they unlock reward badges that match the stickers and activities in the Badge Book.

Themes They’ll Love.

Badge Books are designed to incorporate themes that interest young readers, so they can work on their skills while reading more of what they love.

What themes should we create next?

Vote for the themes your kid would love! We’ll add the most popular themes to our list for new Badge Books.

    Who's Behind It?

    Felix and Jordan

    Badge Books and Beanstack are both products of Zoobean, Inc.

    Zoobean was founded by Jordan, the first head of K-12 education at Google, and her husband Felix, who was previously named Washington, DC’s Teacher of the Year.

    After a feature on Shark Tank and an investment from Mark Cuban, Beanstack became the country’s premier reading challenge and tracker service. Last year, more than 2 million readers used it to boost their independent reading time
