The story behind Storybooks

As a first-time dad, my journey started with dreams and aspirations for my child. Children are struggling with literacy at surprisingly high rates, and I set out to do something about it. I wanted to create a tool to help ignite my son's imagination and foster his love for reading. Storybooks was born out of my desire to nurture my child's intellectual and emotional journey. I look forward to using Storybooks every day with my son, creating innumerable precious moments of learning, bonding, and growing together.

Personalized stories make reading more fun

Read how Draco the dragon became more confident through stories!

Once upon a time...

There lived a family of dragons who wanted to help their playful young dragonling, Draco, learn to read. Every night, they would read a bedtime story to Draco. But as time passed, the stories became all too familiar, and Draco would often fold his wings in boredom.

A magical storybook machine appeared!

One night, under a starlit sky, a device appeared that could create any story imagineable. With excitement, the family typed "Lions learning their ABCs." Almost instantly, an illustrated book popped out from the machine, filled with pictures of majestic lions tracing letters in the sand, chanting alphabets while leaping, and even teaching cubs how to pronounce each letter.

The young dragon developed a deep love for reading.

Night after night, the dragons experimented with the machine. From stories of dragons dealing with bullies, showing that even the mightiest of creatures have vulnerabilities, to tales of knights exploring space, discovering the wonders of the universe. The stories offered insights into the feelings and perspectives of characters, teaching valuable lessons about empathy, resilience, and self-confidence.

Draco was no longer just a young dragonling waiting for a bedtime story. His vocabulary expanded, comprehension deepened, and more importantly, had become a well-versed, confident dragon with dreams of soaring through the cosmos himself.
