Zoozil is an accessible app for all types of readers. I have found it to be extremely beneficial for struggling readers because many of these kids find traditional books to be daunting. Zoozil provides an entry point into reading through the ability to change the story during exciting plot events and the opportunity to gain perspective as they read the story through different characters. Students are able to read and comprehend historical fiction through narratives that not only inform, but encourage the reader to be a part of the ride.
With history traditionally being presented as a collection of dates and cardboard historical figures that have to be memorized, students have been turned off to learning about the past and dreaded reading through boring textbooks. With Zoozil, readers will be thrust into the action so that history comes marvelously alive!

Zoozil is a powerful tool for any teacher or parent that knows the importance of being a good reader. The current shift in literacy education is to provide students with a balance of fiction and non-fiction. Through the unique genre they have created, Zoozil has revolutionized the way books come alive.
