A wide range of free story books based on CBeebies characters. Available for parents to download, with new updates made regularly available. Read to me/read to myself options available, with words highlighted as they are read. Stories encourage interaction from children, which often move the illustrations, making things happen on the screen. There are memory games at the end of stories which encourage children to reflect on and think about the stories. The app has an adults section which supports parents in developing their children's language and reading skills.
