Great for story time!

My son and I use FarFaria regularly for story time. He loves the checking out the different lands on the map and using the read to me buttons on the books. He is still learning to read so this makes it great for when I can't sit with him. Plus no in-app ads means I know all the content is safe.

Farfaria Storybooks - Library of Children's Books and Read Along With Me Stories makes it easy for parents to surround their kids with books. Though the books here don't have the interactive qualities kids might expect from an ebook, the app does offer a wide variety for a moderate price. For families who read a lot but don't have the time to go to the library, this might seem like a worthwhile investment. In addition, it helps parents choose appropriate books for their kids by classifying books by genre and reading level. Though not full of flashy bells and whistles, the app provides a wide variety of books with the reading options kids need.

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.
