A good children’s book is capable of engaging kids while at the same time teaching many subjects at once, such as letter recognition and reading to numbers and counting. In contrast, many educational mobile apps tend to be narrow, automating their lessons a little too much.

Fortunately, here is one interactive storybook that lets you bring back the wonderful feeling of reading to kids, while subtly demonstrating how subtraction works. Set on a quiet, rustic farm house, many nighttime dwellers are sneaking about as the moon rises in the sky.

The next part of the story is entirely up to you and your kids! Choose from among the nine animals, then select their number. Teach your engaged readers how to subtract, so they can find out how many of them are hiding!

▲ The story begins with one moon in the sky. What friends will you find at this time?

▲ Tell the next part of the story in your own way! Choose an animal, followed by a number.

▲ It looks like some of them are still hiding. Teach kids how to subtract and find out how many!

You can even move the animals about the page! Keep playing along, and you can listen to them make their funny noises as you do. The story also comes to a sweet and gentle conclusion once all the animals have been found.

It packs all the elements of a wonderful and educational children’s book, then transforms it into a great teaching app for kids! The artwork is colorfully whimsical, and the writing style is perfectly structured for bed time storytelling.

Try it the next time your children want to practice subtraction, or simply wish to learn more about animals that wake up at night. Your nocturnal friends are ready for your to join their story!

A lot of parents really like helping kids read. It can be another thing entirely, though, when a child becomes an avid, budding bookworm. Can you really afford a growing library to satisfy your kid’s desire for more stories?

For kids hungry for more books, you may need an app library (and not just a huge stack of individual storybook apps). It can consolidate and tidy up a messy screen cluttered with a number of separate books for the kids to tap freely. The good news is that this particular app library already presents a large collection of free, downloadable storybooks that are also very interactive! You can forgo keeping hundreds of icons for different books on your screen, and kids can easily access and locate their favorite stories all in one place.

▲This children’s app finder groups an entire library collection from Grimm’s fairy tales to basic learning activity books.

▲Select only the ones you wish to download!

▲Swipe to turn each page.

▲Bring the pages to life by tapping on the interactive images!

Much like a lot of good storybook apps, the ones in this collection come with clear, voice-over narrations to really help with reading aloud and teaching phonics. Kids can take their time going over each page at their own pace. You can even just turn off your phone’s sound and slowly help your beginner reader try sounding words out themselves. Don’t hesitate to keep tapping and animating the pages. It helps keep these books as interactive as real ones. And unlike a real library, this collection of storybook apps can be carried around everywhere, whether you’re picking the kids up from day care or need to bring them with you to work. Because wherever they are, you can now keep feeding their bookworm journey.
