"I read with my 2½ and 6 year old daughters, 'Goldilocks and the 3 Bears' and they absolutely loved it. When we were reading the story together, sparks were going off with tons of ideas on how I could implement this with my own students." -- Lauren Turk, Speech and Language Pathologist, New York

“Inspired…parent friendly, child appealing…a real winner!” -- Dr. Lydia Soifer, Soifer Center for Learning & Child Development


* WordWinks technique weaves onscreen questions and comments into the story to maximize vocabulary, comprehension and listening skills

* Retell, Record & Share:
-Give your child a special gift: “retelling” the story is important practice for developing listening and speaking skills. It offers a chance to learn and utilize new vocabulary…put ideas in order so they make sense…identify important details…and build memory
-Help your child record his or her own version of the story and share it with Grandma and other loved ones, teachers and friends…right from the app!

* Pages cannot be turned until your child hears the entire narration, which promotes listening and comprehension skills

* Educate your child even when you’re not available with built-in narration and entertaining character voices by a master teacher

Language lady

This is the most incredible app I've seen so far. Not only does it help parents and teacher read aloud to ensure meaning is made along the way, but the retell is fantastic to build comprehension and get children talking and using new vocabulary. Obviously the creators know the research as to making good readers. Hats off to them! I'm anxious to see more books!

Graet app

Great app. My older children are teaching my four year old to read with this app. They love it and it's great to see them all play together. When i first bought the app i didn't fully understand about the retelling of the story, but my kids figured it out all on their own. Can't wait for the next one.

A big wow

I am thrilled you tell me stories has released another book. The wordwinks helped me teach my child about rhyming and gave me the comments to ask while reading. When is the next book coming!!!!
