Overview

This application is recommended for ages 5+.

Every child loves story time! Books from School Zones Start to Read! series, in read-along format, narrate and present amusing stories with memorable messages that help children learn to read.

In The Big Race identical twins named Jace and Mace outsmart a neighborhood bully called Ace. Two clever, determined people working together really can accomplish more! In order to read successfully, children need to master a basic vocabulary of sight words and learn to sound out words. This Level 2 read-along storybook app makes it extra fun. Its intended for younger readers with some experience at Level 1, and most of the vocabulary words in The Big Race are typically introduced in first grade and second grade. Many of them can be read by changing the initial sound or by rhyming with a known word. Its a super solution to the Read me a story! refrain. Easy-to-use settings allow children to control their app experience. If they turn on Read to Me mode, they can follow along with the narrator as each word onscreen is highlighted. With it off, they can try reading the story on their own. In both modes, if they get stuck, they can touch any word, any time and hear its pronunciation. Kids can also choose auto-page turning and background music on or off.
