What’s New?

Fish Stew for Two

Kitten, brave but lonely, sets out in search of a home. But that’s not always easy to find when you’re young, rambunctious … and messy! Where does Kitten belong? Little ones will cheer him on his adventures.


How STORY BUG, powered by Kindoma, works

While you are together in a call or next to each other, the book selections and page turns are synchronized on both sides. You can point to things on the page and the other side can see where you are pointing. Use this feature to highlight words as you read, or ask questions and have the children point to things on the page.

Key Features

  • Dozens of books available from award-winning children’s publisher Cricket Media. More books added every month. Teach your little loved one (age 0-6) about the ABCs, 123s, animals, shapes, colors, emotions, and more.
  • Invite family members to connect in the app and then call anytime for story time, or record a reading for them to enjoy later
  • After receiving a recording of a book, send an adorable thank you video to the reader!
  • Synchronous, shared reader allows both participants in a call to see the same page of the book and turn pages together
  • See where each other are pointing on the screen to sound out words or identify objects
  • Purchases are shared during a call, so only one side needs to pay for premium book access.
