Ratings and Reviews
I want to start out saying that my kids love this app and I am mostly a fan. It's impossible to upgrade to a full subscription, though, if you let the free subscription lapse. I finally just signed back up for a free subscription with a regular subscription starting in 2 weeks, but can't access the full library for two weeks while I wait to be billed. I could not figure out any other way. So we will wait I suppose, but I am frustrated.

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.
My son is dyslexic and this app is his favorite when it comes to reading! The opendyslexic font option and the read along text are perfect for his needs! I love that the words light up as it’s read aloud!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
