BAZOOF! offers unique tools that can take student learning to a whole new level. A few approaches could be 1) Prepare and submit a class project where the students work together or 2) Prepare small group or individual projects where a few are selected to be submitted—with a way to celebrate all their hard work. BAZOOF! has worked with teachers and librarians since its early beginnings in 2007. Look at a sample of youth contributions and topics covered in BAZOOF!’s Digi-Mag.

“It's been an absolute pleasure working with the team at BAZOOF! My fourth and fifth-grade library patrons have had their poems, artwork, articles, photos, and jokes featured. Along the way to becoming published authors, illustrators, and photographers, they learned about the submission process, following guidelines, uploading files, making requested edits, and checking professional proofs. Their hard work paid off with their first bylines! Our school staff, students, and families were incredibly impressed. Thanks for inspiring and encouraging their dreams, BAZOOF!”
