QUALITY SCREEN TIME FOR KIDS: teaching stories, games, and activities designed for social-emotional learning, cognitive development, reading skills, and more! NO ADS!

Truth and Tales offers many fun activities for kids: interactive game stories, audiobooks, coloring activities, and game physical exercises. Our stories and activities are unique: in addition to being fun and surprising, they help children to grow, to be prepared for challenges in life, and support their body and mind to be restored to homeostasis. A homeostatic state promotes health, a calm state of mind and happiness!

Our stories are based on TEACHING STORIES: ancient tales originated from many different cultures around the world. These stories are scientifically known to promote the development of essential skills such as attention, empathy, perception, self-knowledge, self-regulation, and negotiation skills.
There are many studies related to Teaching Stories' efficacy by authors such as Robert Ornstein, Doris Lessing, Idries Shah, and more. We adapt these stories to modern interactive media to reach and improve as many people's lives as possible.

The interactivity aspect of the stories allows children to alternate between moments of attentional focus and relaxation as they experience Truth and Tales, improving their narrative comprehension and helping them to fully absorb all the benefits of the stories.

Our app helps kids develop skills such as:
• Conflict resolution
• Self-confidence
• Self-observation
• The ability to overcome irrational fears
• It also helps them to start to love reading!

Truth and Tales’ activities come in various formats:
• Interactive Game Stories: stories for kids to play and read simultaneously. They can customize the characters, interact with the stories' characters and objects, and even blow on the device’s microphone for the narrative to progress;
• Audiobooks: perfect stories for bedtime, for situations when the lights are off and/or screens are no longer attractive, or for road trips to avoid getting car sick.
• Artist Gallery: time to color! In the Artist Gallery activity, kids let their imaginations run wild as they color drawings from the stories.
• Move It-Move It: a super fun game in which kids mirror animal postures and shapes found in nature with their bodies. This game helps a lot the body and mind integration process and return to a homeostatic and relaxed state. Kids prop up their phones/tablets somewhere they can see the screen and follow the instructions guided by animated illustrations and narration. An enjoyable experience for the whole family!


• DOCTORS, NEUROSCIENTISTS, AND EDUCATORS have participated in the app development process to ensure a healthy, solid bridge would be built between reading and the new generation of kids.

Homeostasis activities offer countless benefits, ranging from strength, flexibility, and balance development to posture and breathing improvement. It can also enhance kids’ body awareness and ability to be fully present, which is the foundation of mindfulness practice.

• NOTE: OUR kids' stories do NOT impose moral lessons on the kids. Do you want to know why?
→ MORAL LESSONS direct readers' attention to learning specific things, therefore they prioritize these interpretations and *RESTRICT THE MIND TO PERCEIVE OTHER POSSIBILITIES*!
Teaching Stories are filled with nuance and depth so that each reading experience is unique to the reader. These tales are meant to be freely interpreted! That is why our stories are not constrained by moral lessons: they allow each and every one of us to be free to perceive!
