Booksicals founder Susan Chodakiewitz believes that children learn best when you engage their imagination: “I believe you can develop a child’s love for reading by expanding the world of a book beyond its pages.  Engage a child’s senses on multiple levels and bring reading to life.” And this is precisely what inspired her to create Booksicals.

What is a Booksical?

Booksicals are more than books, more than ebooks and more than narrated  ebooks with music underscore.

Booksicals are ebook musicals.  And just like on Broadway the music in a  Booksical  reveals character, gives back story, moves the story a long and when the emotion is heightened, just like on Broadway, a character breaks into song.  With a Booksical– kids can read , hear ,watch and perform the book — Reading is no longer passive… but an active sensory mind-body experience.

And with the release of our books and ebooks  in Spanish [5], now a child can read, hear, watch and perform our ebook musicals  in both languages.  I hope this will serve as a great tool for helping kids learn English or Spanish as a second language.

Booksicals works with schools, theaters, libraries, book fairs, children’s literacy groups  to promote literacy and encourage the sweetness of reading.   

Booksicals also partners with Corporate Brands [6] in exciting and innovative projects to connect the brand with literacy, books and children.
