Approved by parents, teachers, and kids the world over.

The only FULLY customizable children's book app of its kind!

    Grasshopper is one of the best developers in the app store. We and our children love your apps. Thank you!

  • Good App

    by Jose Sandobal

    My kids love the reading application, but it could be way better if it had more stories and not just the same one throughout. I would rated higher is there were more stories added to this app.

  • I like cats

    by Mini animals

    I like the variety of cats presented along with cat characteristics. My 2 year old granddaughter has cats and loves listening to the words and seeing the pictures. Grandma

  • Grass hopper

    by Rachelle Kubricht

    My son like this app. He was able to follow along while I start dinner .

  • Great app for my little one

    by Ilovepie6

    Great app for my little one who is starting with the fundamentals of reading and writing.

  • More stories?

    by Lonelygal03

    Okay app better if more stories

  • Diversity

    by Please Note!

    Nice concept, however... This app would probably have a wider appeal if the images shown reflected more cultural diversity. The American middle class look offered is a bit outdated. We are raising our kids for 2030, aren't we? Just a thought :)

  • I like cats

    by Grace$7890

  • Kindergarten app

    by Big Time 275

    This is more for kindergarten. Way past this in 1st grade Not much too it not worth the download time

  • Not good

    by Poptartmuncher

    Books would be a better investment.

  • Terrible.

    by ObjectivityRach

    I've bought dozens of learning apps and this is the worst ever - hardly any functionality and totally not interesting to me or my four year old. I wish I could get a refund!!

  • No Way

    by GoofaceSchmidty

    Are you kidding me ? Do not waste your time or money on this. I got new iPad and wanted to add some Apps for my kids. I bought about 10 and this was worst one.

  • B o r i n g

    by Kris in cali

    This is so boring and will not help your child read or write. It is short and not at all applicable for a child learning to read.

  • Really ridiculous

    by FanFace

    This app is really silly. The "story" included is not actually a story at all. Do not waste your time here.
