“Rootbook” May Be The Easiest Tool For Creating Online Choose Your Own Adventure Stories

As regular readers know, I’m a big fan of having students both read and write Choose Their Own Adventure stories (see The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories).

One big problem I’ve found, though, is that there hasn’t really been a super-easy way for students to create their own.

Thanks to reader “Grubie,” though, I think I might have found one. It’s called Rootbook.

The site has lots of choose your own adventure stories you can read without registering or signing-in. In addition, if you register (which takes seconds), you’re also given the ability to create your own. And it seems to be pretty easy to do so — the only trick I found was that you have to make sure to upload a photo cover page first to your story or else it won’t let you continue.

I’ll definitely be having my students give it a try this upcoming school year.
