About us

Our Mission

For a company that’s all about storytime fun, we take our mission very seriously: To inspire a love of reading in children and help kids become who they are meant to be. We believe there is a simple, yet powerful three-step process all children must undergo to realize their fullest potential:

By transporting stories off the page, we transform kid’s books into immersive experiences that promote literacy, imagination, and fun. And by combining the love, trust, and safety of storybooks with the convenience of streaming, we make reading accessible for all, empowering the next generation to learn, do, and become. 

We approach content differently

How it all started

Co-founders Marshall Bex, Shannon Bex, and Russell Hirtzel

Reading doesn’t always come easily, but it should always be fun

When one of our co-founders noticed his youngest child was struggling to engage with books, he set out to create a reading experience that would capture her attention just like videos did. And so, the idea of Vooks was born: a new way to do storytime that marries the literacy-building power of books with the engagement of video. Ad-free, kid-safe, and carefully curated with developing brains in mind, Vooks provides learners of all levels a place to explore the world of reading.
