Listening to books read by storytellers and actors serves as a model for how to read fluently and with expression. Tales2Go has also allowed struggling readers to access higher level texts in their reading classes. Students also improve their sight word vocabulary and comprehension when they listen to an audio book while following along in the print version of the book. Tales2Go has motivated students to read more and has helped students develop positive attitudes about reading." Cathy Potter, School Librarian, Falmouth, ME - "Very Useful. I am a teacher and use this with my 4th Grade students. They love the variety of stories." jonathanwylie - "A Mom Must-Have! My two boys (ages 7 and 9) love this app! We listen in the car as we travel, during dinner and before bed. Both the boys and I like the vast variety of stories to choose from and the fact it is so user-friendly" CuteBoyMom - Tales2Go is a fantastic resource for Homeschool families. We love listening eveywhere, kitchen table, car and even in bed before bedtime. Love tales2go." R. Nichol - "LOVE this app! As a special education teacher I really appreciate the ability to access audio books/stories for students. As a person I really love the flexibility to listen to books while I work, drive, and relax. This is a fantastic app." Jeubank - "Great app! My whole family and I listened to Encylopedia Brown in the car today (what a blast from the past) and it worked perfectly. Lots of great content for all ages... I definitely recommend giving it a shot." whitemencantjump Subscriptions Options: 1 Month Subscription for $9.99, automatically renewed until cancelled. 1 Year Subscription for $99.99, does not automatically renew.

    We love the choices of stories, but there is one major flaw. The app does not save your spot in the book if the app is closed. There is an option to place a bookmark, but if the device is accidentally shut off or if the battery dies, (or if you forget to remove the last book mark and place a new one) your spot in the story is lost. Plus, every time you open the app, you have to find your story and then find your place. It doesn't even have a "currently playing" section. My kids and I find this really frustrating. This seems like it could be easily fixed. Other audiobook apps have this feature.
  • Not impressed!

    Although I previewed the app and used it for five weeks with a captive group of kindergarteners, this is not what I want for primary kids. The only image for the read aloud (which is well read) is the book cover and there is no animation or clickable links to help students respond to the story they are listening to. I like the Reading Rainbow app so much better!

    When I read about this in the New York Times, I admit I was a bit skeptical. But, I am a complete convert now. It's genius! thousands of audio stories -- can't buy one for that price! And, my kids haven't even begun to scratch the surface of all the stories, but they've become avid listeners now. I can't say enough good things about this app. But, the very BEST part was how it helped my youngest with his reading ... he'd been listening to the Goosebumps books with the app, and one day I suggested he listen along with a copy of the book. Boom! He LOVED it, felt in control of learning to read, and now is asking for more and more books (and of course, more and more audio stories, too)! GENIUS!
  • Best audio book app ever

    I have tried so many audiobook apps that never worked and some of them didn't have any free books. And other apps only had classics and old books from the 1990s!!! This app is amazing and I love this app and it's so nice to listen to these books and they are amazing. I would recommend this app for people who don't really have time to sit and read a book. I love listening to this app and I am loving it. This is a great app. The only thing I would like is that why isn't this app on the iPad , my brother wants to listen to this app but it's not on the AppStore in his iPad. And for those who say it's too expensive it's better than other apps that charge like $20 for each book and u know u wont listen to that book again! This is a great app. I say to those who think it's expensive it's like Netflix but instead u listen to books instead of watching movies! I love it!!!
  • More books in Spanish please!

    Great app! My students love it! I wish they were as exited about the books in Spanish. It's hard when there are so many cool series books available in English and barely a handful of "boring baby books" in Spanish.
  • Great app
