Story Time For Me Review & FREEBIE

Story Time For Me is a unique literary website designed specifically for toddlers and children in early elementary school, allowing them to read and listen to enjoyable, online interactive picture books. They also offer a one-of-a-kind animated personalized book.

Their unique technology balances entertainment with proven learning techniques to provide your child with hours of fun reading enjoyment. Your child will be fascinated by the fantastic illustrations and captivated by the animation, music, and sound effects that enhance the professionally read narration. Best of all, your child will be engaged and amused as he or she learns.

The Story Time For Me e-library offers compelling storytelling with inspiring and memorable characters that will stimulate any child’s imagination. The original episodic content will foster a love of reading and improve your child’s cognitive development and reading skills. The interactive language prompts will provide your child with his or her own personal reading coach. Questions and activities related to the books will provide children with ways to further explore the themes presented in the stories.

My Take
I tried out two Story Time For Me books: Fern and the Big Snow and The Special Egg. In The Special Egg, a young girl finds an egg and adopts the dragon that is hatched. In Fern and the Big Snow, Fern and her friends enjoy a big snowfall. I love how the story teller reads slowly and expressively while the words are highlighted on the page. This makes following along easy while the animated characters on the page are acting out the story. There are also words in the story that you can click on. When you click, it pops up a window that shows the child the definition of the word while having it spoken. For example, when you click on the word "snow", it shows a picture of a snowman and snow covered grass with a gentleman's voice saying the word "snow". The stories themselves are captivating, and there are so many to choose from! You're sure to find many age-appropriate stories for your child to read. And because there are many stories in a series, your child can enjoy the same, familiar characters in different situations.

Also, very soon they will be offering a personalized storybook. This is not your average personalized storybook where they just swap your child's name into the story. You actually send in photos of your children in specific positions which they expertly craft right into the multimedia story. This is a fantastic gift which makes reading fun, educational and enjoyable for your child.
