There is nothing like a great book and getting your kids to read can sometimes be a hassle. Especially if you don’t own that many books and kids would rather play than read. Learning to read and giving your children the opportunity to read can be very important. So what do you do when you can’t get to the library every week?
We had a few of those moments happen this year. Even though the library isn’t far away and we have a library of our own in our house. We still love to read new books and give our children the opportunity to experience joy, adventure, imagination and mystery; and they can do that without ever having to leave the house. Reading books is a great way to help encourage their imaginations of where they can go and who they can become. The stories and adventures never end.
With FarFaria the kids get to grab the iPad click on the app and either read the book themselves or have it read to them. Love this!
So here are all the things that I love about this app
- There is a Parent button that as a parent you can click on the reading levels and choose the correct level your child is reading at.
- There are 11 different lands my children can travel to and read books from.
- Each of the books has a colored square on it showing what reading level the book is.
- There are over 750 books to read from.
- There are 5 books that are added every week.
- No advertising or hidden fees.
- I love how interactive the books are.
- Books that you or your child favorited are available offline.
- There are three options for reading the book – Auto play, Read to Me, and Read myself.
- Your child can pause or start over the book on auto play.
- When the book is being read to your child the words are highlighted as the reader reads the words.
What I didn’t like about the app
- It probably comes down to preference but I would love to have the parent button be more interactive in the way of adding children icons for kids so you can go in and see what they have read or was read to them and I think it would be great to see if they read the whole book or exited out of the book before it was over.
I hope you found this review helpful. You can get the app on iTunes or on the Play Store. The app is free and your child can read one book FREE every day. If you would like unlimited use of the app and have your child be able to read as many books each day. It is $4.99 a month. If you want to save $20 you can buy the full app for $39.99 for the year.
