Good reading app

My 6 year old loves this app. He reads the dialogue while the audio is playing and finds the stories very entertaining. Most of them are silly. This app is a creative way to attract young readers and get them reading without their conscious effort.

Great app

I can’t believe there aren’t more reviews! This app helped my son learn how to read and spell. The stories are great, varied, funny, sometimes a little weird but overall well worth the $.

Can’t find price

Will not show you price unless you download the app. For that and that alone will use different product. If you go to the website makes you come back here to download.
