My boys love it. I like it because it’s better than the other stuff they play on the tablet.

My four year old loves his “electric books”, whether it’s with me reading them or In auto-read mode. The little Levar Burton mini films are also a hoot and have inspired some funny conversations. This is the most loved app on our iPad

Free month? Cancel anytime? Sounds good until they make it nearly impossible to cancel. My 5yr old son had no interest in this app.

I downloaded this app when my daughter was a toddler. At the time, she enjoyed this app then grew out of it. I have since deleted it from my phone because she is much older now. Imagine my surprise when last week, my account was charged $29.99. Not cool at all. I can’t find contact info to communicate my concern with the developer of this app, hence, I have no other option but to leave my comments here. Parents be aware of the drastic price hike when using this app.

I was hoping, when we got this app, that it would contain all the classic bits like Toothpaste Millionaire from Reading Rainbow - where most of us know Levar Burton from. Sadly, due to legal disputes, he can no longer post that content and Reading Rainbow itself has no content to speak of. I would have loved to share with our kids some of these stories from my childhood. That said, the app has loads of books and videos. Kids can read or have stories read to them. I originally tried to access the Skybrary from my PC through my browser with my daughter and just about nothing worked properly- hence the missing star. The books would not open and it crashed repeatedly. Everything so far works as it should on the iPads.

I've had this app for years now. My daughter and I love it. The last update hasn't fixed the crashing once you select an island. I tried clicking on app support and it takes me to a page that states "no longer exists". Please fix, we truly miss using this app.

The background noise of the island won’t shut off and it’s incredibly annoying.

I am thoroughly impressed! I wanted my granddaughter (5 yrs.) to use her iPad for something other than watching videos and playing games. There are a huge number of age appropriate (you choose the age) books which are wonderfully narrated. The app allows any five books to be placed in a backpack (downloaded) so children can ‘read’ even when offline. There are ‘stickers’ given as rewards after every book that is ‘read.’ This app is totally worth the money!

You better be careful. There's no way cancel your subscription. Although they tell you that 14 days you can but you can't!

My son is seven. He's not the biggest fan of reading. He strives to do his best, but if he hits a snag while reading he tends to become frustrated and lose the desire to read. This is now his favorite app. His ability to read when and what his mind desires surpasses his frustration. We have tried many learning apps throughout the years. This by far has the most content. It is subscription based, and for me that's fine. I just want him to find out how wonderful a good book really can be.
