I’ve tried to find something else like it as my daughter has read almost all of these books but haven’t been able to find anything yet. Though I may not be looking hard enough?
I wish there were more stories and the existing ones were checked for bugs (esp the Goldilocks story, repeating trying the chairs and beds. My daughter doesn’t realise because she hasn’t heard it any other way but it’s so annoying for me!).

Thank you for this amazing Storytime app!
An amazing Storytime/book app! There is nothing else like this that I have seen! My little boy loves going through the story books, and doing the interactive parts too. The design and usability is so brilliantly thought through and executed.
We think the library functionality is great! It is lovely that he is able to return books to the library and add new ones to his book. A brilliant app!! Thank you!
