Toddlers love this app, my 2 & 3 yr old granddaughters stay entertained and love the movie feature on the books. When you select the movie option, it will read from page to page without the kids having to turn the pages, just like when I readto them.

The good things about these books far outweigh the bad. I try to look at it like life, nothing is perfect. About half of the books are "regular" chaildren's stories, like "Hansel & Gretel", "Cinderella", and "Snow White". The others are a mixture of educational type sto...
The good things about these books far outweigh the bad. I try to look at it like life, nothing is perfect. About half of the books are "regular" chaildren's stories, like "Hansel & Gretel", "Cinderella", and "Snow White". The others are a mixture of educational type stories and a few ethnically diverse ones, one African, and 3 Asian. There are some about cars, machines, and dinosaurs. I didn't count them, but there are approximately 20 books, it only downloads a few books in the sample, after you pay the $3.99, it will download the rest of those shown in the library. Then, to download more, you tap the corner that says add more books, it downloads a catalogue, you can then choose any, or all of these books, but have to hold and tap onto the page, go to the menu at the bottom, and tap add to my library. If you don't have an sd card, you may have to remove some from your library and download those you want. I have an sd card and downloaded them all. Some have complained about the sound, and there are a few books whose sound is not very loud. My granddaughters still look at them, and I read those to them, 90% you can hear fine and if you invest in some earphonesthey are very loud. All in all, I find it to be very worth the $3.99, I usuallypaymore than that for one book.

A bunch of the stories are weird and glitchy for me. Some have pages with no images, just the text on black, some cannot load at all, if I try it just puts me out entirely. However, even with that I think it's worth the money. The stories we can read are cute and we can get more of them.

    Storybook app

    The 25 story book app is terrific! My grandsons just love to sit on mylap and have me read the stories and also have the stories read to them by the nook! They take an active role in reading the stories by turning the pages. The illustrations are lovely and colorful. I highly recommend this series.
