Making reading fun for ANYONE!
My kids are doing AR and have to read sooo many books to reach their 9 week goals. They used to get so annoyed when I would call them to read their books! NO MORE! And seeing each word light up helps them recognize the words so much easier. When they go back and read it themselves they don’t get frustrated. Bookful is a Life Saver.

Thank you so so much for your kind review!
Great app for kids reading
This app is great for kids learning to read. It keeps their attention and makes reading fun. There are a few issues and features that could make this app a lot better
1 for some reason the narration tends to cut out and require restarting a book or the app randomly
2 it would be great to add a read with me type function that allows kids to read and tap on a word when they get stuck
3 overall the app is a bit choppy/clunky and would be nice if it ran a little smoother
4 more interaction with the stories. There are a few store sites that react when you touch the picture, it would be free at to add more of them

Thank you for taking the time to give us precious feedback! We will work harder to make reading a more pleasant experience for our users. Do ensure that you have downloaded the latest version of our app as we are always working hard to make updates and fixes to our app!
I’m giving it a two stars because a could never actually use the app to its full potential due to the fact that the subscription prices are astronomical hight for a kids app! Keep that in mind before you download and waste your time! Not to mention the developers responses to all the negative feedback is pretty pathetic. What a terrible company. Seriously don’t give these idiots your hard earned money. They literally emailed me and tried to justify the cost of the app which didn’t make any sense at all. This is a company that does not care about children all they care about is the almighty dollar!!

We're very sorry you're disappointed! A completely free service would not be able to provide the same high-quality books, audio books, and educational games that Bookful offers. The subscription fee exists so that the authors, illustrators, filmmakers, and narrators of these books can get paid for their work.
