Reading that gets better with every word
Yap Books is an exciting new way for children to learn how to read and enjoy books with voice animation. Children are now able to bring their stories to life as they read, triggering sounds, animations, and more with their voice making children’s storytime better with every word.
Listen, read & learn with voice animation
Using voice technology children are encouraged to use their voice as much as they can to interact with our books and learning materials. This helps children to improve children's communication, speech, and language, helping children to become better readers and communicators.

Since launch, the Yap® Books app has received many awards, including the ‘best educational app’ and ‘best mobile learning technology’, reaffirming that our unique learning strategy is a much welcomed and effective solution for children and educators.
Read along & learn
The app helps children by providing real-time reading help and rewards for each word they read correctly, making screen-time much more impactful and educational for any reader! Yap Books helps children to improve their literacy, language & communication skills by cleverly listening to them read and then providing feedback to help them learn. Every reader will receive immediate animated rewards, as well as reading badges, stars & percentages encouraging children to challenge themselves time and time again.
Play, speak and learn with Yap Books
Yap Books includes it’s very own ever-expanding library, with a range of learning materials, such as word games, decision making stories, phonics, and fictional stories, all of which can be brought to life by the reader's voice. Our stories and learning resources are carefully planned and written by our team of teachers. Each focusing on a wide range of key learning & development skills. With a range of child-friendly characters and interactive resources, learning is kept fun and engaging to help children develop their reading quicker.
Create books and then bring them to life
Writing is a key skill for life which has been integrated within our app. With Yap story Creator, children can create their own magical voice-animated books and then bring them to life with their voice. Encouraging children to write stories, helps to build a better understanding of language and literacy, and helps to promote creative thinking. Using a wide range of animation tools, children can then start bringing their imagination to life and learn the fundamental skills of digital creativity, from a very early age.
For schools & teachers
Yap® Classroom enables seamless connectivity from classrooms to homes, ensuring all children are supported inside and outside of the classroom. Allowing teachers to remotely monitor children’s reading progress ensures that every child can receive tailored support for each step of the way. Remote, smart assessment technology allows a teacher to see each individual pupil in one online area, allowing them to keep track of reading activity and development. This ensures that every reader is reaching their learning goals and not falling behind without going unnoticed.
