What's New

Version 2.3.2

- For this release, the team focused on improvements to the reading experience and squashed as many bugs as they could.
- Also, iPhone X compatibility (for those who like to walk on the wild side).

New from Version 2.3
It's super duper important that you update your app to this newest version, because our engineers told us that it was and we totally believe them. Seriously though, they said that if you don't you may have some trouble accessing books and videos in the future and we really don't want your kids to miss out on all the cool stuff happening in the app. Plus, this update comes with something our team has been hard at work creating for your family and we promise the update will be worth it.


• Create your own stories and build worlds of your own as you earn stickers. The more your child reads in the app and the more videos they watch, the more stickers they can earn. You get five to start (because we love you), so update the app and jump right in. Plus, these stickers won't end up all over your house and car and every single piece of clothing your family owns. Everyone wins.

Editors’ Notes

Building on the mission of the long-running TV show, this marvelous app encourages kids to read with a huge assortment of books and video clips. Fun categories like Awesome People and Animal Kingdom—and recommendations based on children’s interests—ensure they’ll find something they love. Parents can use the app to promote reading at home, and it offers teachers a vast library curated by a trusted source, making it easy to align with Common Core State Standards.

Learning to read is a journey.


When you are looking back and your memories of reading are the worlds that were brought to life in your imagination, that's your reading journey. Now you're a guide to that journey with a beginning reader, I bet you want to guide this new journey to magical memories for your new young reader. This is THE cutting edge of creating that train depot that leads...anywhere.



For 4.99 a month I am incredibly impressed with the book selection. As a preschool teacher I also appreciate the variety of fiction, nonfiction. Since much of early reading is about interest and developing a love for reading asking for the child’s interest is right on track.
