The goal of Scholastic Bookfinder is all about making life easier for teachers and families. Whether it's finding books that match educational standards or sparking kids' love for reading, the site wants to be a friendly place where everyone can discover great books.

Our research identified that a significant portion of teachers (60%) and families (45%) struggled to find specific book titles that matched their needs. To solve this issue, we implemented the Scholastic Bookfinder solution, which included:


  1. Simple search filters for age, genre, reading level, etc. across 180,000+ books.

  2. A regularly updated catalog with over 2,000 new titles added monthly.

  3. A consistent, user-friendly interface with reusable UI components.

  4. Personalized book recommendations based on user data and browsing patterns.

  5. A database of over 500,000 user reviews and ratings for informed selections.


By incorporating these features, the Scholastic Bookfinder effectively addressed the pain points, enabling teachers and families to easily discover and select relevant books tailored to their specific needs and interests.
