Bookzilla is Scottish Book Trust's free app for early secondary school students in Scotland, designed by and with teenagers. The app encourages pupils to read for pleasure, whether they are already regular readers or just embarking on their reading journey, including book recommendations, ratings and reading dares.
This resource includes ideas for using the app in school, including activities to use in school library sessions, class time and book group meetings.
This resource outlines how focusing on reading for pleasure with the First Minister’s Reading Challenge can help you achieve your aims as a school, from raising attainment to improving pupils’ health and wellbeing.
