Subscription Trouble


I want to start out saying that my kids love this app and I am mostly a fan. It's impossible to upgrade to a full subscription, though, if you let the free subscription lapse. I finally just signed back up for a free subscription with a regular subscription starting in 2 weeks, but can't access the full library for two weeks while I wait to be billed. I could not figure out any other way. So we will wait I suppose, but I am frustrated.

Age Appropriate Stories


My daughter loves this app and for the most part loves the stories. Her profile is set for 5 and under. A couple of stories she has come across has left her in tears. Tonight’s story has her in my bed afraid to sleep alone. Stories of scary pet shops and animals eating people are not really appropriate for her age group. :(

Kids love it 😍


Great new way to get my kiddos reading. Hope they keep it up.
