Great app

Lovely app, needs a bit of work on the speed that the books load for one set of people. It always seems to be there for one or another straight away but not both.... sometimes takes a few times loading. Otherwise great app, keep adding more books my son and granny love it a lot!!

Love Caribu

This is such a good way to keep in touch with grand children. My eldest granddaughter loves books and to be able to read her a bed time story whenever she wants is a real joy. We can share the story, talk about what is going on in the book as well as being able to see each other. A 4 yr old child does not like to be asked endless question about school etc. sharing books on Caribu is just wonderful as there is so much to talk about. I really recommend Caribu. My grand children live in a different country to us so this is a joy .
