Clever Mamas was recently approached to try out a new iPhone app called My Living Stories. I do admit that my kids love to use my iPhone for games and activities and I search out apps that I know they would enjoy and that I would want them playing. My 5 (almost 6) year old loves to play air hockey and my 3 year old quite enjoys the hungry crocodiles.
I had a look at My Living Stories this weekend and chose 3 for my kids. Today we got to sit down together and try it out. My Living Stories tells a familiar story in either French or English. You can chose for the words to be read, or your reading child can read it on his own. The story also has the option to record. I really liked this feature. We used it two ways. One, I recorded the story for my kids to listen along with. Two, my 5 year old recorded his own voice reading the story to listen along to. He thought that was pretty cool.
I think this app would come in handy when we are out on the road. Already, my husband and I have used a 'record' feature on our iPhones, recording a few of their favorite story books so that they can listen to their favorite stories while we are driving. This app is similar in that way with the added bonus of the music, sound effects and animation.
