"My family loves it! They always use the app when we go on car rides or when they're bored at home. It's good to keep their imaginations going with reading. I totally recommend." - Parent @Gonzachr006
“I love the skybrary app. Can't recommend it enough. My son is riveted by the stories and begs to hear more, the narrators are exemplary, and I love the diversity of stories. If you're on the fence about allowing your kids to "play" in an app (or paying for it), this app is the one you should bend the rules for - you and your kids will both love it and it's worth every penny!”- aphrotrite
“When it comes to screen time, my son is allowed to use Skybrary anytime. I’ve never seen him concentrate so much and he asks so many interesting questions afterwards. I love it. ” -ProudDad66
"We've never before seen as diverse a library offered up" – Common Sense Media
“I love this app and I highly recommend it for children” - Wired Magazine’s GEEKMOM
