This wonderful collection of professionally narrated fairytales covers lots of ground and stays true to the authentic versions of classic stories. Fairy tales and folk tales have long captured kids' imagination and played an important role in teaching values and passing along a community's culture. It's nice to see these long-appreciated stories easily accessible in one app. Families used to toned down versions of classic stories may be surprised by the gritty real versions. And though kids can certainly adjust to narrative styles, they may not be familiar with the language featured in these classic tales. Some stories are better or more engaging than others, and there may be some trial and error to find stories that appeal to your kids. There's a decent attempt at diversity with some tales from around the world in addition to the classic European stories. But, there's room for much more. Lastly, Fairytalez - Audiobook Stories has great listening and navigation controls including high interest themed categories, and the option to create a queue, listen offline, and save stories to favorites.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
