What we like best:

This app has lots of stories to choose from with narration and sound to draw young readers into the story.

What you should know:

Some of the stories differ from versions the young kids will be used to and the app is not very interactive.
Full Review:

Looking for hours' worth of stories but don't have a lot of room for books? This is a great app for some entertainment on the go. iStoryBooks automatically comes with several books with everything from biographies and fairy tales to multicultural stories and fables.

Young minds will work on their reading skills and can even work on their language skills with some books offered in Spanish. Kids will be entertained with these retellings of some of their favorite stories and new ones to add to their repertoire as well! Bright and original artwork and narration go together with sound effects to make these stories new and unique for children's entertainment.

While this app is not the most interactive, it is still a good resource for having several books on hand to keep little mind's working on reading skills and entertained by a good book! The app also comes with a few interactive alphabet books to keep building on those necessary and basic skills.
