Wonderful app!

I am a single 64 year old Episcopal priest and have no experience of children’s apps, but I have to say that Bookful is absolutely delightful. I could spend hours playing with it. I’m not a children’s educator but I have been a history professor at a couple of universities and the Greek myths seem to provide children with a very useful beginning in the Western canon.

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

Not happy

We were not happy with this app at all. I have 2 boys, 5 and 6, who are beginning readers who love to read. This app kept freezing in different parts. We couldn’t even get a single book to read all the way through. They tried a “game” to spell words in the book they tried to read. They had to spell words from bus to excited. What 6 year old knows how to spell excited? The only part of the “park” that they did like was the coloring and painting, which is not what I got this for. I asked if they wanted to keep it and they both said NO. Far too many free apps that are much better!
