Book Taco’s gamified approach focuses on sustained engagement. Our game page features a best-in-class suite of logic, strategy, sports and adventure games where the high scorer’s personal avatar is showcased ratcheting up the competitiveness and capturing the learner’s interest in a fun, familiar environment.
*Our game page is completely customizable allowing educators the option of turning On/Off individual games or disabling the entire suite of games. There is also a Weekends Only setting.
”We are currently using Book Taco as our reading program and our students love Book Taco, especially the ability to personalize their own accounts with avatars and curate their own booklists with titles they want to read, not just books based on a dot color. Our campus has used other reading programs in the past but dropped them due to the extremely high price tag. Book Taco is very reasonably priced and full of engaging, skill building activities and resources. I have been very pleased with Book Taco and look forward to great results from our students.”

”Establishing a strong love for reading within our students paired with comprehension and analytics is very important to our school. Book Taco allowed us to easily track and compare how our students were pacing and meeting their reading goals through a fun and interactive environment. We value the data we are able to collect from Book Taco as well as how customer service focused they are!”
