• Read-to-Me eBooks feature expressive readings complemented with music, sound effects, and highlighted text children can follow for an engaging experience that build reading confidence even as it entertains.
• Learning Activities included in enriched Storia eBooks offer an array of activities to engage and fortify a child’s reading, from word games and puzzles to quizzes and exclusive author interviews.
• Reading Reports connected to each child’s digital bookshelf help parents and teachers follow a child’s reading habits by keeping track of metrics such as titles read, time spent reading, words looked up, and activities completed.
This app permits readers to read and interact with Storia eBooks, and to make annotations such as highlights and notes to support the reading experience.
Parents can set passwords on children’s bookshelves so users under one account cannot see each other’s annotations.
Parents can follow their children’s reading statistics (time spent reading, words looked up, books opened) through an in-app Reading Manager or through the “My Account” area of Scholastic.com.
