Speech with Milo is focused on developing language skills in children. The interactive story book allows children to build skills by recording their own story. Your child has the option of reading and listening to the words that we provide as they play with the sounds and sights on each page. Or, you may turn off all features so they can create their own story.

Customer Reviews

Love the idea

I love the concept, but the narrator speaks too quickly. This caused frustration for my kindergartener. I thought it would be a great tool to improve his reading skill. I end up reading it with him and not using the narrator function much at all. I would give a better rating if the narrator read at a more normal pace for young children. The interactive parts are simplistic but cute and entertaining enough for a just-turned 6 year old.

Great story

I must say I am getting tired of repeated tellings, but not my kids. One in particular talks about Milo, draws him and plays with the stuffed toy! It really holds their attention.

Good Graphics. Issues with Sound Volume

For some reson this app does not exceed more then 30 or 40% of the volume capacity of the device (Iphone) It makes it difficult to listen to the sounds and storyteller.
