Top-5 Reading Apps for Kids

I looooooove reading books with my kids. There is something about having them curl up next to you as you read to them (and sometimes read the wrong words to them), turning the pages, pointing to words in the book, being able to just close the book and say, "Bed time!"


But...I have found that no matter how interesting I can make the stories I read, reading apps will inevitably hold my children's attention long than I can.

This is okay....Breathe, Marc, breathe. You are just a father. Apps are created to draw in the kids and make them want more. And so the trick is choosing the correct reading apps and the ones that can maximize engagement and learning for your child, while minimizing the over-stimulation that many apps cause.


Here are the top 5 reading apps for kids that can help to improve reading skills and make reading a fun and enjoyable experience:



1) Story Eggs: One of the standout features of Story Eggs is its interactive stories.
