Great Apps for Kids!

Oftentimes we’re on the go and need to find just the right book in no time.  FarFaria offers that luxury.  With over 900 books that are categorized by theme and by reading level, it is easy to find children’s books on most topics.
FarFaria is like the Netflix of children’s books, but without the pesky ads and worries.  All stories are beautifully illustrated and some offer music that accompany each illustration.  Parents and children can safely browse the books by title, release date, and by reading level.  It is free to download and try for a month.  After that, it costs around $5.00/month with new books added each week for no additional cost and no in-app purchases.  I can’t wait to use some of the stories in our story time!

EDIT 03/28/2015: After using this app for a few story times I really think it's a hit.  Kids and parents enjoy the stories.  However, it is ONLY available through the iPad.  Not able to download/open using any other device.  I would like to be able to read and play the stories using a Laptop/Mac computer.  Maybe eventually.
