About Active Literature

Active Literature is a startup intent on bringing the best in books, technology and educational games to children. Active Literature's mission is to make a difference in the lives of children and the community at large. We have published two unique personalized books:

1) the award-winning initial book in the Sherlock and Me humorous mystery series about the elementary-aged reader and taking place at the reader's school. This book engages reluctant readers with a personalized story, and hidden picture puzzles.

2) the customizable picture book for preschoolers, titled, Which Monster Are YOU? which addresses preschool behavior issues with beloved stories about adorable monsters.

Readers, parents and teachers all give rave reviews of Active Literature's books and the impact that they have on readers.

In addition to the amazing product creations, Active Literature raises money for several non-profits, including:

Community InRoads

Lazarus House
Lawrence, MA
Emmaus, Inc
Haverhill, MA
Merrimack Valley Chorus

You can nominate additional non-profits or early education centers to get assistance by e-mailing info@ActiveLiterature.com.
