Why Toggle Books?

Why Toggle Books? Because they are...

Powered by your child's imagination.

Toggle Books empower children to be the co-creators of their books (with a little help from an adult and some award-winning artists, writers, and video game developers).

High-quality, yet affordable.

Even though our books are beautifully written, illustrated, and professionally bound, we do our best to keep them affordable by offering huge discounts throughout the year and including free shipping on all of our Toggle Books.

Educational.

Studies have shown that personalization can help kids retain vocabulary words and boost letter recognition. Psychologists also have noted that personalized books have a powerful effect on children, helping them believe that they too belong in the world of the written word.

A memorable experience for families.

Toggle Books started when our founder and his four-year-old son created a book together. That experience of bonding over a creative activity is the spirit behind Toggle Books, and it's the reason there's a sweet sense of love in all of our stories.

Advancing diversity in children's books.

According to the CCBC, in 2019, only 28% of children's books featured primary characters who were not white or animals. Toggle Books allow kids to create a character who looks like them.

An expression of our mission.

Toggle Books are an expression of our mission: to help all children become life-long readers, to help all children see themselves as heroes in their books, and to encourage families to bond while creating and reading books together.
