African easy-to-read stories

So glad someone thought of something like this!
Great app for quick stories that your little ones can read about Africa... of which story-telling is a huge part of the culture. The best part is that the stories have a lesson to learn, in an easy, down-to-earth read with great illustrations. Rubies Africa also provides a glossary to explain the words that may be new to readers. Such a great way to improve vocabulary, learn about cultures, and have fun while doing so.

High Quality Artwork and Well Written Stories

I was immediately impressed with the quality of the illustrations. The app stands to become a digital resource for children to read on the go or at bedtime. The app has glitched a time or two but otherwise no issues. Thank you and well done.
