Hey everyone! Today I want to talk about websites that have stories for kids. Today I was looking on Pinterest to see if I could find some websites or apps that “D” would like. I ended up finding a couple that were great!
The first app I want to talk about is the Read Me Stories app. This app is free to download, but does offer in app purchases. Read Me will have a new story every day. The story you get depends on which category you choose. “D” and I chose Tales of Adventure, so the book we read today was Is the Moon Made of Cheese? When opening the book two options popped up. One is to read the book by yourself and the second is to have the book read to you aloud. The first time we read the book I read it to “D”. She loved it so much that she listened to it again, this time with the app reading it to her. After every sentence that was read to her, she would repeat the same sentence back. This app was great! The one thing that I would change is that we have access to more books without having to pay for them all upfront!
The next thing I am going to talk about is a website. It is called Funbrain.com and it is awesome! This site offers books and games. “D” and I started out reading Gonk Wrecks Everything. “D” loved this story, because it was about a little monster that destroyed everything he played with. She thought it was so funny! After we finished the story she played a few of the learning games that the site offers. She really enjoyed funbrain.com!
The last thing I am going to mention is the YouTube channel, Storybook Nanny. This is such a great channel for your young children to watch. There are a ton of videos to choose from! Each video is of the Storybook Nanny reading a children’s story. “D” listened to five stories! They are not long videos, but they do entertain. A couple of the stories “D” listened to were Pinkalicious and No David! This is an amazing YouTube channel and I definitely recommend it for all your kids!
All of the things I mentioned were great resources and “D” loved them all! It is great, because not only does she get to play on my phone, but she is also learning something. She spent the rest of the afternoon talking about the stories she heard and was making jokes about things from the stories. Do you use any learning or reading apps? Let me know in the comments below!
