  • Kinder teacher & Mom approved Apr 29, 2018

    By shhhhhhhhh
    My kids have been using this app for a couple of years now. I love it and am now using it in my kindergarten class as well. My one and only complaint is about 1-2 times per week the app logs out and they lose their downloaded stories. They use their iPads in the car and Speakaboos is one of the main apps they turn to. When they lose their stories that means I need to spend the following evening sitting with both of their iPads going through all their favorite stories so they can have it the following day. It’s tedious. A) the problem of the random logging out needs to be fixed or B) it would be nice if parents had the option of going through a checklist of which stories (or all) to download instead of having to listen/watch each one or C) upon logging in, it should automatically download the stories they’ve watched or have selected as favorites

  • Good, needs more work Mar 11, 2018

    By ❤️NY
    It's got great stories, artwork is always good and the voices are usually fairly famous ones that step in to make a story. I really do like this as an educational tool, so I remain happy I bought it over ahead ago. Big problem for me is not being able to use this on any other device but the iPad I bought it on, so I have to pull mine out every time we use this thing.

  • Awesome app! Only one problem.. Apr 8, 2014

    By Leonuchi817
    I really love this app and, my 3 year old daughter loves it! The stories are amazing and, interactive. The only problem there is with this app, I that after I download some stories & when I'm not connected to the internet, they get deleted on their own??:( I'm not always at the house & she likes to listen to stories wherever. There is no wi-fi everywhere we go, I download her favorite stories & as soon as we are out of wi-fi range, they get deleted. Does anyone else have this issue? It's frustrating because my daughter really likes this app & it keeps her entertained. She gets upset when we go somewhere where there is no wi-fi & all the stories I downloaded gets deleted.:( Please fix this problem ASAP. P.S Keep the amazing stories coming.

  • Perfect app for kids learning to read Jul 15, 2013

    By GerryC181
    I stumbled across Speakaboos looking for an App to share with my grand kids (3 and 5). It didn't take long before I found Speakaboos and promptly ended my search. Wow wow wow. All the classic stories (and some new!) but framed with great animation and music. Plus, all the customizable features make it so that my 3 year old and 5 year old can read the same story and have a unique, personalized experience. This is the perfect app for teaching a child to fall in love with reading in this new, tablet-centric world. All the best features of a classic children's story blended with all the benefits (entertainment, data tracking) of the new world order of education technology! I approve.

  • Horrible Mar 6, 2019

    By AAWZHGJK
    My kids loved it the first year we got it. I tried to delete app, because they no longer used it and it is $8/month. Even though I deleted app they still charged me! The kids decided they wanted to use it again so I tried to log on and it said my ‘trial period had ended.’ There is no phone number and no customer service agent because they are a ‘small company.’ I emailed to cancel and I am waiting for a response. It has been an additional year that I have paid $8/month and I can’t even use it. Rip off

  • Logging out issues continue to be a problem Sep 13, 2018

    By bellalinda0514
    We love this app and my kids both remain interested in it after using it for two years. I would give it 5 stars if it weren’t for the login issues. Every single time we shut the iPad, the app logs us out and we lose all of the downloaded stories. It is negatively impacting our user experience!

  • Caution FREE Trial is Fraud Jan 14, 2018

    By quiethavenfarm
    I signed up for the year subscription with a free month trial. I canceled after a week and I was still charged for a year and it says I can still have access for a year. What happened to the free trial? It’s not a free trial if they charge you for a year and won’t end it during the free trial.

  • Reading while surrounded by tech Apr 18, 2017

    By Digitalkitty2384
    I am a book lover and always imagined my kids would be too. When my son was born I couldn't wait to share the experience of reading with him. Thing is my husband and his family are obsessed with electronics and where you would find my shelves full of books, theirs are full of tech gadgets. After two years of trying to compromise and/or not force the topic I finally found a workable compromise! It's not exactly as I imagined it but my son still sits in my lap as we read, sing and play together using speakaboos. And without realizing it, speakaboos is also encouraging my 30 year old husband to read more. :) LOVE IT!!!

  • Count me in! Jul 15, 2013

    By 678543
    What a wonderful app. I've already subscribed and it's getting lots of use in our household. It's not really an app, more a world of stories and books. Such attention to detail on each story, from the art to the sound and animation. The kids got hooked immediately. And Speakaboos has clearly done a lot of work to create a thought through product for early readers. Very impressive. This isn't just a toy to distract, it's a real learning environment. Well done! We're looking forward to lots more reading with Speakaboos. It's such a relief to have one place I feel safe going knowing there's lots of great books.

  • Well thought out--big fan! Jul 16, 2013

    By Kajal D
    I just downloaded the app for an upcoming weekend with my niece and after playing around with it am sure ill have a hard time sharing :) love all the options for selecting books based on interest. The technology is easy to understand and to follow and the illustrations are perfect--not overdone but not too charicature-y. The options for read along, read and play, etc are also very smart. Kids don't usually tire of the stories they love anyway but nevertheless this gives them levels as they grow in their reading and comprehension abilities. Big fan!

  • Perfect for Guided Reading Sep 2, 2016

    By TeachingInTX
    So perfect and easy for my guided reading groups in my 1st grade classroom. I'm starting to plan for back-to-school, and it's so simple to use this platform to find titles for my small group lessons with the Lexile filter, plus all the reading modes have made it wonderful for my reluctant and emergent readers to enjoy the books that otherwise would have been on a frustrational reading level for them. The word highlighting and text-touch feature are great, too. Planning on making sure my entire grade level team has a subscription this year.

    Both my 3 year old and 6 year old adore this app. The story selection and illustrations are colorful and amazing. This is the best read along app I have encountered and it is worth the $7.99 a month.

  • Does not keep you logged in on your devices Apr 2, 2017

    By LM3
    My son loves this app, but we have to login every time we use it. We have this app on our phone and iPad. I paid for the entire year and I'm regretting it somewhat for that reason. I went as far as emailing and calling their customer service about a month ago and never got a response which is disappointing. I was hoping an update would fix this. We have ABC Mouse and we never have this problem having to login every time we use it. I would recommend ABC Mouse over speakaboos; it's more educational, more personalized and it has just as many stories.

  • Regret our year subscription purchase Sep 6, 2016

    By louden311
    I regret purchasing the year subscription primarily because we are forced to log in every day to access the content which is not convenient especially for young children. Out of several months worth we have used it a handful of times. Fix this and it might be worth the purchase. Content is okay although I wish the read along content was made into the picture rather than an awkward white box. Also the content seems more video based than I would like.

  • Kept crashing Nov 18, 2016

    By Blork23
    My daughter really likes the app which is the only reason I'm giving it more than one star. It seems ok to me as a parent. The problem is that she uses it for a time during the day and the next day when we start up the app it never gets past the start-up screen. I have to delete the app and re-download every time I reopen it. We are only doing the free trial so I'm glad we didn't purchase it.

    By myshellj1
    Both my son and I love the app., but ever since the last update I've had lots of struggles with it freezing and not opening. I have to delete the app. and reload it to get it to work. If my son didn't love it so much I would have given up. I hope it gets fixed soon! Before these issues I would have given it 5 stars and hope to again.
