“Kid in Story. Finally a GREAT Social Story App!” Shannon Rosa, Squidalicious

“An excellent app if you are looking for more creative freedom in your child’s learning experiences.” KinderTown

5 Stars – “I am impressed and found it difficult to write this review without saying ‘It’s so easy and fun!’ every other sentence. The truth is that it performs as promised, is attractive and no bugs were found while putting it through the motions." Technology in Special Education

“By involving the child in making the social story, the child receives an in-depth social skills session and then the book can be sent to the child's parent or caregiver via email or Dropbox for ongoing reinforcement of the skills. We found the ability to customize the story by placing the child's photo into the scene to be highly motivating and engaging for all users.” BridgingApps

Kid in Story Book Maker templates come to life when you place your child or student’s picture on every page. The 20 story templates cover a variety of practical and fanciful topics from promoting good hygiene by washing your hands, to a playful exploration of emotions and facial expressions, to a fantasy visit to San Francisco! Older children can also write their own custom story or modify any of the templates as they see fit.

Here is how you can personalize the stories and share with friends and family:
Add your child’s photo into the story template background. Our unique Locolens™ image detection technology allows you to snap a portrait (or use one already saved in your library), and pluck your “kid” out of the picture and place him or her in the story.
Modify the story by editing the story templates
Record your own voice or the child’s voice as the narrator
Once complete, children will enjoy reading or playing their very own personalized visual story
Share it with others via email, pdf, or Dropbox. Kid in Story Book Maker combined with the new FREE Kid in Story reader enables teachers, therapists and parents to share stories they create with students, friends and family.

I use Kid in Story with my kinder and first grade students to recreate stories in their own words. Supports reading and listening comprehension. Even better when the children get creative and insert a picture of themselves using Kid in Story photo editing feature. My kiddos go back and reread their own stories over and over during independent reading. This app has no limits!

Missing community library

I purchased the paid version because I wanted to make quick social stories with pre made templates. The description of this product advertises that it contains a community library with templates that can be used. But when I go to that option in the app it says the page couldn’t be found.
I contacted them through email and I hope I will get an answer soon with solutions or a refund. I will update this review if they fix the problem.
