"I read with my 2½ and 6 year old daughters,'Goldilocks 
and the 3 Bears' and they absolutely loved it. When we were reading the story together, sparks were going off with tons of ideas on how I could implement this 
with my own students." -- Lauren Turk, Speech and Language Pathologist, New York

“Inspired…parent friendly, child appealing…a real winner!” -- Dr. Lydia Soifer, Soifer Center for Learning & Child Development


* WordWinks technique weaves onscreen questions and comments into the story to maximize vocabulary, comprehension and listening skills

* Retell, Record & Share:
-Give your child a special gift: “retelling” the story is important practice for developing listening and speaking skills. It offers a chance to learn and utilize new vocabulary…put ideas in order so they make sense…identify important details…and build memory
-Help your child record his or her own version of the story and share it with Grandma and other loved ones, teachers and friends…right from the app!

* Pages cannot be turned until your child hears the entire narration, which promotes listening and comprehension skills

* Educate your child even when you’re not available with built-in narration and entertaining character voices by a master teacher


“I’ve been creating stories for children for nearly 40 years, and highly recommend You TELL Me Stories.’ -- Arthur Yorinks, Children’s Book Writer, Caldecott Medal winner

“The stories are engaging and appealing. Every home, classroom and library serving preschool and primary grade children should have access to You TELL Me Stories.” -- Judith C. Hochman Ed.D., Windward Teacher Training Institute

This classic story is retold: After a bear family living in the woods goes for a walk while their breakfast cools, Goldilocks comes upon their house. She enters and helps herself to their oatmeal, sits in their chairs and lies in their beds – always preferring the baby-sized one. When the Papa, Mama and little Baby Bear return, they are upset to find the intruder. When Goldilocks is discovered in Baby Bear’s bed she jumps up and runs all the way home!

You TELL Me Stories are bright, colorful and entertaining ebooks created by educators and language experts for you and your child to enjoy together again and again ... but behind them is cutting edge science designed to show you HOW to read to your child in a way that stimulates conversation and builds listening, thinking and language skills, along with the knowledge and confidence that will serve as the strong foundation for the reading, writing and thinking abilities they’ll develop in school and throughout their lives.

You tell me stories are the best

Finally a way to not just have fun reading to my child, but to know i am doing my best to prepare my child for later school success. I now feel confident I am helping her to learn to think about the stories, both the events and the characters, in a way that will make her a critical reader and learner as she grows up. Thanks for helping parents know what they are doing with their kids is in keeping with all the latest research on learning. What a gift. And they are fun stories to share as well.


I'll tell you...

This is a smart, fun, and highly educational app for children. In today's world it is often too hard to keep a child's attention. However, this app has solved the problem. Most importantly, the app has improved my son's reading and confidence. I look forward to more products from this company.

This makes my job as a parent so much easier when reading to my child. Love that it's like having a language expert guiding me along. My daughter loves the Retell and so does the entire family when they receive it by email. Way to go! An app that is fun AND educational
