Just ok

I wish I could say I loved this app.... We thought it would be such a great idea for our child to watch books when he started getting ancy on road trips, or sometimes in Place of reading a book at night... Unfortunately, it's very disappointing. We bought the 6 month membership, and I wish we could get our money back. While I like a lot of the graphics, and the interaction. The stories are horribly written and annoyingly narrated. I didn't expect all the books to be newberry winners, but I wasn't expecting grade school level writing either. And the narration is so distracting, due to improper inflection and lack of emotion. All around I'd tell people don't waste your money. (Reading rainbow makes a great one)


This app used to work well but now it constantly quits or won't even start. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app & it still doesn't work!! Frustrating! What's the point of a subscription when it won't work.

Fantastic App!

We love this app in my house! There are tons of stories to choose from and a new one is made available each week. All of them are animated and interactive, and my kids love the illustrations and sound effects. I think the best part is that it´s great for different ages and reading levels, as it has a "read to me option" (which narrates the story) and an option that lets you read on your own. As a teacher I also think it´s a fantastic language learning tool. They have stories in eight different languages. It seems the new version has solved any bugs there were before. All in all we´re very happy with it!
