Storia named a “fantastic children’s book app” by Mashable!

We talk a lot about the brain drain that can happen over the summer — the research proves that kids who read four or more books on their summer break can avoid the “summer slide” (the loss of reading skills that occurs when kids are out of school). One way, of course, to combat that is to keep kids reading books they enjoy, especially over the summer! Mashable agrees, and today they announced their list of the 10 Fantastic Children’s Book Apps, noting “The following apps provide entire virtual libraries that cover classics like ‘Winnie the Pooh’ as well as modern tales. And no need to keep track of your child’s reading. Some of these apps will do that for you, too. So grab the iPad, pick an app, and settle down with your child for an afternoon of summer reading.”
Mashable says: “The Storia app provides kids with a wide range of books that cater to varying ages and reading levels. The app comes with five free books, with additional books available for purchase. Parents will appreciate the tools that track things like how long a child reads and what words he or she looks up using the built-in smart dictionary.”
