Great app for kids!

Ive been using One More Story for years and was thrilled to see an iPad app finally. One More Story os a great resource for little kids - pre readers and early readers. With different voices reading each book and unique music, each book is an adventure and my kids just love it.
They've got a great selection of books, including well known authors like Ezra Jack Keats, and some gems Ive never heard of before. My younger one loves being read a story and my old one uses I Can Read It mode to practice - clicking on words that are difficult to hear them read aloud.
I fully recommend One More Story to parents and teachers!

App needs work. Narration is great

The app is honestly complete garbage. They need to take lessons from a real app developer. Look at how audible or something similar loads the books. There’s no search or filtering of any kind. It desperately needs help.

The narration and the read-along technology is fantastic. Increase the library and fix the app and it’ll be perfect

Wonderful idea!

My girls (5 & 2) are obsessed with this app. We listen to a few stories almost every day while I get lunch ready. The library is big enough to offer good variety and the narration and music/sound effects are very nice. I initially paid for the shortest membership but upped it to annual. Also, customer support is very responsive and helpful!
