In Truth and Tales children can read, play, color, practice physical activities and connect with themselves! With content full of love, fun and wisdom!

Truth and Tales offers many fun options for kids: interactive stories, audiobooks, coloring activities and games that restore homeostasis! Our kids stories are unique: in addition to being fun and surprising, they help children to grow and to be prepared for life’s everyday challenges.

These stories are called Teaching Stories: ancient tales that develop essential skills such as attention, empathy, perception, self-knowledge, self-regulation and negotiation skills. Our goal is to provide fun for kids while simultaneously developing the skills they need in order to live according to what they were born to be.

Doctors, neuroscientists and educators have participated in the app’s development process to ensure a healthy, solid bridge would be built between reading and the new generation of kids.

Truth and Tales’ activities for kids come in the formats:
● Interactive Stories: stories for kids to play and read at the same time. 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: audio-only stories for kids. Perfect for bedtime, when the lights are off and screens are no longer interesting, or for road trips, to avoid getting car sick.
● Artist Gallery: time to color! In the Artist Gallery, kids let their imaginations run wild as they color drawings from the Truth and Tales’ stories.
● Little Yogis: super fun game in which kids mirror animal postures and shapes in nature with their bodies. The game promotes the return to homeostatic state and the integration between body and mind. Kids prop up their phones/tablets somewhere where they can see the screen and then follow the instructions guided by animated illustrations and narration. An enjoyable experience for the whole family!

Little Yogis is the perfect combination of health and fun for kids to return to their natural balance! The practices from the homeostasis game were created by a specialized kids yoga instructor so that the little ones could integrate their body and mind and still exercise safely and calmly!

Homeostasis is when our body regulates our physiological processes and maintains its stability, its internal balance. It’s a state that needs certain functionalities from the nervous, endocrine and immune systems to be engaged in order to keep its internal environment at adequate levels.

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

All the stories are based on TEACHING STORIES, ancient tales from many different cultures around the world. These kids stories were created with the purpose of showing kids the way back to themselves, and that is why they were chosen to be a part of Truth and Tales.

Since moral lessons direct readers’ attention to learn specific things, therefore prioritizing these interpretations and restricting the mind to perceive other possibilities, our kids stories do not impose them on readers. The Teaching Stories are filled with nuance and depth so that each reading is unique and open to be freely interpreted. That is why our stories are not constrained by moral lessons: so that each and every one of us is free to perceive!

Kids develop skills such as:

●Conflict resolution
●The ability to overcome irrational fears

And also learn to love reading!
