Building on the mission of the long-running TV show, this marvelous app encourages kids to read with a huge assortment of books and video clips. Fun categories like Awesome People and Animal Kingdom—and recommendations based on children’s interests—ensure they’ll find something they love. Parents can use the app to promote reading at home, and it offers teachers a vast library curated by a trusted source, making it easy to align with Common Core State Standards.

An awesome reading app, with a few rough edges

This app is something the iPad has been waiting for: a lending library for children's books. This means your child can "check out" books to read, and then "return" them when they want new ones, without you having to buy a whole new app each time, and for a monthly subscription price roughly equal to two books.

While the app has some great features ("islands" that divide books by subject, a virtual "backpack" and "library card", for instance), it does drop the ball in a few places.

For one, right now it only supports one child, meaning if you have two or more kids reading from one iPad, only one gets to pick their favorite subjects, and get their personalized library card.

Another issue, though minor, is a lack of "follow-bouncing-ball" style words. While the narration is excellent, and the books show which page the narrator is reading, nothing shows the children which exact word is being pronounced. This is fine for pre-readers, but for kids just starting to read books themselves, it's a bit of a let-down.

Other than those fairly minor points, this is a must-have app for every parent who buys children's books in the app store.

A piece of the puzzle not all of it

This app will give you a reasonable number of kids books that it will either read to you or that can be mute so it is not read to you. It does not go into the phonics of words nor is there a mode where the child is able to ask for help in silent mode for how the word sounds. The subscription fee at five dollars a month or $40 US per year seems high for this content, However there is a free month so you can decide for yourself. I was hopeful I could find an app that would be an all in one to teach my child to read Unfortunately this is not that app.
