Screen Play App of the Week: Bookster



Works on: iPhone and iPad

Cost: FREE

For: Kids who like books (and like hearing themselves speak)


Bookster is a fun and interactive storytelling app that encourages literacy for young kids. The app reads a story aloud about animals called, “What If…” and lets kids flip page-by-page to record their own voices telling the story. They just have to simply press the record button and mimic the reader’s words to record their own voices telling the tale. 

The illustrations are cute and will keep kids entertained, especially when they’re playing the story back with their own narration. At present, “What If…” is the only story available on the app but it would be great to see more story book options in the near future.
