What is Kids Rate Books?
Through the Kids Rate Books program, kids can earn free books for their school libraries and classrooms, just by writing book reviews. KRB is hosted on Bookopolis, a COPPA-compliant free social network and book discovery website where 7 to 12 year olds share their favorite books and find new ones.
How does it work?
When teachers and librarians sign up for the program, they choose three free books from a list of popular AMP! Kids books. When students post five or more reviews for any one featured title to Bookopolis, their classroom or library is eligible to choose another free book.
