Are you searching for an app that combines nonfiction text with high-definition pictures? If so, look no further!
When designing our apps, we placed an emphasis on preparing your child to become a better reader. That reading development allows children to explore 30 nonfiction stories that contain stunning visual animal images. As students explore each text, they will expand their vocabulary and reading comprehension skills. Each text is paired with a reading comprehension exercise that directly assesses the child’s ability to answer a variety of question types. These range from multiple choice questions, true/false and main idea questions.
Still not convinced that this app is the one that should occupy your child’s time and tablet? Take a look at our well-designed app features:
• Child-friendly interface
• Detailed images
• 30 non-fiction animal passages
• Seven questions per passage
• Common core aligned
• Question types include: multiple choice, T/F questions, and main idea
• Create your own passages
• Compose your own assessment questions
• Detailed reading comprehension report for each child
• Different modes: practice and testing
• Content can be synced on multiple i Pads
• App-enabled reader allows users to hear the text’s words and questions
• On-screen reader that allows students to see the text as they hear it
• Track multiple children’s progress by creating separate user accounts

Two Distinct Modes:
The app has two distinct modes: Practice Mode and Test Mode. Students are provided with instant feedback in practice mode. These audio and visual cues provide positive reinforcement for students as they respond correctly to the questions. Meanwhile, the instant feedback also encourages reflection and correction when questions are answered incorrectly. Test Mode prepares students for authentic testing situations that require them to carefully assess questions.
Personalize the Content:
Our app allows parents and teachers to add content. This means that reading passages and/or comprehension questions can be added. You can increase a child’s motivation by adding a title, text, and picture to a brand new story that you write! Imagine the possibilities – the story could be the story of the passage, or a child’s favorite animal could be the text’s subject. Adding your own material is super easy with our interface. After creating the perfect text, add your own yes or no, multiple choice, or true/false questions to assess reading comprehension and vocabulary.
Detailed reports provide users with accurate progress reports.
Learning new words has never been easier! With the tap of a finger, users can hear unfamiliar words. As they listen to the pronunciations, children are building reading, and vocabulary skills all at once.
Drop-box, a free web-based storage site, allows users to sync multiple devices!

Ratings and Reviews
Helpful tool in reading comprehension
Even though my son is only in the 1st grade, he is still able to figure out what these stories are about and is able to answer the questions correctly. I love that he gets to learn about animals which is something he is passionate about. I also like the feature of creating your own lessons and keeping track of your child's progess. The progress check is one thing that I always look for in learning apps so that I can keep track of how well he's doing. I do wish the stories were read by an actual person instead of computer generated because some of the words can sometimes run together or can be hard to underatand, but overall, it is a good learning app.
This app is not that engaging. The stories are interesting enough but many of the main ideas are poorly worded and do always capture the spirit of the passage. This makes it necessary to guess what might be the answer by looking for the thumbs up character rather than using a little inference to form a conclusion.
It is also true that children are not motivated by charts and graphs. Even a simple starburst and confetti is enough to cheer them on.
As it is, this app loses my attention after a few stories. If I find it uninteresting so will my students.
Fun and Engaging
This app is fantastic! I love how interactive it is. The stories are animal related and engaging. Children actually learn interesting facts about the animals they are reading about, rather than just a boring reading comprehension passage. There is also the option to create your own lesson plans. I like the graphs and progress charts. You can see how your child is learning very easily. I highly recommend this app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
