Create personalized picture book experiences for your kids by the people who love them the most! Let’s Read provides a fun, easy way to record video & audio narrations for your kids. The app synchronizes your video/audio recordings with the illustrations from our award-winning collection of picture books. Then share your personalized stories on a private, secure family network.
Use your secure, private family network to connect up to 5 devices. Simply send your loved ones an invite, so they can record personalized storybooks for your kids!

Ratings and Reviews
All of our kids’ grandparents are far away, but this app enables them to be close by for bedtime or anytime! Also, sometimes I get busy with my job and can’t read as much with my kiddos as I want, but with this app, I’m still there for them - with my face, my voice, and my silly interjections that no one else can replicate!
I thought the selections were slim at first, but I discovered that it actually takes quite a bit of time to record whole books. I’m not near to recording all in the library so far, so I think it’s a great investment. And I look forward to seeing what books Let’s Read adds to the library in the future!
We love it!
This app is such a great way for me and my daughter to stay connected when I am away for work. As a single mom with a full time job, I can’t always be there to read her favorite stories again, and again, and AGAIN :) But now I can. We also have a lot of family out of town, and they have joined our network to share in this experience as well! My parents love it just as much as my daughter. So glad this app exists.
So stinking excited about all the possibilities this App is opening for educating the next generation! Teachers can use this app to evaluate reading progress in their students, and kids can enjoy seeing their own progress with reading!
The app has a feature that allows you to invite loved ones to record books for your kids so that they stay connected to their family. In this global culture, this is such a leap for bringing families together!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
