Really good app except.... This really is a great app, but PLEASE add some level 3 books!! Then I'd give it 5 stars! I also love the reading comprehension questions at the end, but there are only 4! I wish there were at least 8-10!

My daughter loves it! My girl is 4 and absolutely adores this app. She spends hours reading and we have been able to see a lot of progress in school thanks to that! I like the option to track what she has been learning about and the new words she was curious about too. Definitely reccomend it for kids her age.
