New StoriesAlive Subscription-Based App Offers ‘Go-To Digital Library’ for Children this Holiday!


(The Jackson Five Family Blog received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader review and giveaway. However all opinions are honest and our own!)
Looking for a great gift for children this holiday season? We have something cool to tell you about today. It's an affordable gift for those children who LOVE to read and have access to an iPad or Android tablet.
It's the brand new StoriesAlive subscription-based library app for children ages 3 to 8. The actual app is available for free download and then you purchase a subscription to the StoriesAlive library for just $7.99 per month. 
StoriesAlive offers children hundreds of interactive stories that will engage, entertain and encourage learning among young readers. Kids can delight in a thoughtfully procured collection of stories from treasured classics and favorite fairytales to modern day bestsellers from renowned children's book authors. New stories are added on a weekly basis, including premium story apps, for an ever-expanding library. Once a story is downloaded an internet connection is no longer needed, making StoriesAlive perfect for on-the-go families or for cuddling and reading at bedtime!
What's different about StoryAlive is that all story titles are visually enchanting, highly-interactive apps, not e-books. The interactive features in premium and standard story apps included in StoriesAlive take interactivity in digital books to a whole new level. Some of the interactive features included to encourage reading engagement and improve comprehension skills among young readers are: 
  •          Personalization of text and voice: Each StoriesAlive title has an option for the text and voice of each story to be changed, making for a completely unique experience and allowing children to connect with the story to read it again and again.
  •  Create your own Hot Spots: A whole new level of personalization, Hot Spots allow readers to create their own spots in the story by selecting areas to add any sound effect. Readers can select a character and add his/her voice to it and play it back for fun and learning.
  •         Vocabulary Builder: In addition to a dictionary for readers, titles for young readers include Pictionary to help clarify the meaning of a word for improved comprehension.
  •         Read To Me/Read It Myself: Each story comes with the standard interactive feature of Read to Me, a read aloud functionality with the word highlights. Users have the option to turn off Read To Me, allowing readers to read the story at their own pace.
