Just in time for holiday shopping season, my good friends at Scholastic have a fun app for kids that I thought I would share with you! The app is called Storia, isn’t that a great name? Storia has learning activities, books, a dictionary and parental settings.
Here I am reading Bad Pets on the Storia app on my iPad:
How cute is that doggie? How could he possibly be bad?
- Learning activities-to enhance growth with helpful games
- Read-to-me books-to create interactive experience
- A dictionary-to comprehend the content
- Highlighter and note–takers-to pinpoint the important information
- Personalized Book Shelves– to organize each child’s reading levels
- Private parent settings-to ensure your child is progressing with reading
The free app and the five free ebook downloads are the perfect supplement tools to enhance your child’s learning experience. Storia® also offers more than 2,000 titles for kids from toddlers through teens, about 350 of which are enriched with vocabulary, comprehension, and video activities.
The Storia® app can be downloaded FREE to PC, iPad or Android tablets (with more platforms to come later this fall) to start a digital library for home or classroom use, and comes with five FREE ebooks – including a special Clifford the Big Red Dog® ebook in honor of his Big Red 50th birthday this year.
Storia® has been recognized by Warren Buckleitner with the “Editor’s Choice Award” as “the top” children’s ebook app in Children’s Technology Review, named one of the “Top 10 Best High Tech Products of 2012” by Dr. Toy, and has received glowing reviews in The New York Times and School Library Journal.
All of the above is just a fancy way of saying: download the Storia app, it’s fun! I found it easy to use, it’s kinda like Kindle, only from Scholastic so you know it’ll be safe for the kiddos!
Here’s a video if you want to know more.
