Editors' Notes

Discover a world of stories with interactive features.


Thank you for this amazing Storytime app!

An amazing Storytime/book app! There is nothing else like this that I have seen! My little boy loves going through the story books, and doing the interactive parts too. The design and usability is so brilliantly thought through and executed.
We think the library functionality is great! It is lovely that he is able to return books to the library and add new ones to his book. A brilliant app!! Thank you!


Love it but sure it has glitches.

Think the app is great and a brilliant way to get kids reading and excited about doing so, but the app kept giving my daughter the option to press home when the story was being read out to her. Which is confusing at times because she kept pressing home button when the option was given, even before the next option making her have to re-start the story.
