Struggling Mama 🤷🏻‍♀️ ,

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.

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

Got a lot of bugs

In theory this app would be a great app for kids and my daughter loves it when it actually works. It’s hard to even sign in on anything other than my iPhone because on any other device it won’t even let me type in my email, it keeps giving her level 4 books which are way too hard for her and it won’t let me change it to an easier level, it won’t even let her scroll through all the books and it drains my iPhone battery BAD. If they would fix these issues I’d give it 5 stars because she does enjoy it.
