What Fun Educational Apps Liked 

We just loved the message contained in this storybook apps and just want to share it with the rest of the world. The story is a powerful message of hopes and inspiration for our kids.

In addition of offering a great story, this book app is very well done. It does not offer highlighted word as you read but honestly the story is so overwhelming that it is not needed. We loved that all the illustrations from the kids themselves, the narration and the storyline. 

Another great feature that makes this book app a top pick and must have are the additions of mini video documentary about the real life of all these children!

This stunning and inspiring storybook app is free for a limited time.... If you read this review while prices are back to normal, please note “One hundred percent of after-tax profits from App sales go to efforts helping orphans with special needs around the world, including advocacy, care, and adoption assistance grants.

Overall, a storybook app that we loved for the message it brings and hope it will support all these children in Uganda where dream and hope are the key elements to their survival! It is engaging and touching ...

A highly recommended storytelling app!
