A customisable story reading app, you can record yourself over the story and in all the sound effects throughout the app. Parents can record their own voice, or help children to read over the top. This is a more complex storybook for older early years readers, with lots of lovely illustrations and characters with different voices to hear from. Stories are customisable to children's preferences (including putting your name within the app) and children can design and colour the pages in watercolour/other textures throughout. The recording opportunities are very simple to follow, however creating the story will take a little while and effort, but will be worth it if children and adults work together over time. There is an excellent range of vocabulary used within the storybook. Books can then be shared with friends and family (with adult support) via email, as well as being saved to personal libraries within the app. There is also an in-app option to print the book in paperback, which is an extra paid addition, which is great to read with children offline, helping them to remember the story they have created.
