Pocket Tales is an online social reading game that offers a remarkable way for kids to engage with books, send and receive book recommendations, and discover their next read.

To play Pocket Tales, readers test their knowledge of a recently finished book by taking a short quiz on the Pocket Tales site. Passing a quiz earns the reader points, which helps them level-up and challenge their friends for leaderboard rank. Passing a quiz also unlocks additional activities and opportunities to score points like rating and reviewing books and recommending books to friends. For doing these and other activities, readers are rewarded with digital badges called “amulets” which appear on their Pocket Tales bookshelf.
