10 Story Time Apps for Librarians (and Parents too!)
Add some digital charm to your next Story Time!
We know that children's librarians have their hands full helping spark the love of books in children. And with so many thousands of book apps in the app stores, it can feel overwhelming to find the ones to use during a Story Time. This is where we can help. We read and evaluate thousands of book apps every year to find the ones that really stand out.
For an app to work during storytime, we know that it should have a good story, diverse characters, and inviting graphics and animations. If you are going to use an app rather than a paper book, it needs to deliver some digital magic! The apps on this list do exactly that. They also lend themselves to having multiple children interact with the digital pages, so that you can invite several listeners to help you "read" the app.
Without further ado, here are 10 no-fail book apps to use during your next Story Time.
[NOTE for Parents: These books are great for reading at home too!]
