If you go to App store, you will find out that the number of book apps for babies and toddlers are growing tremendously. It is overwhelming to look through the list, if there is a list. It is hard to decide which one to get, which one will worth the money… I had always hoped to have a place where I can just “borrow” the app for two days, and then decide if I want to buy it or not. Now, I find a place you can do something almost like “borrowing”. PlayTales is now offering a program called “PlayTales Gold”. With a $3.99 subscription, you can have access to hundreds of children’s books on iPAD for a whole month, with new titles every week.
PlayTales offers interactive books for kids 8 and younger. It contains a whole library of books in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Chinese and Japanese. I checked a couple books they have. All books have 3 reading options: ‘Read by Myself’, ‘Read to Me’, and ‘Autoplay’. There is no individual word highlights when reading the book, but there are music and simple animations. Frankly speaking, I am more excited about the concept of “monthly renting” than the books themselves. Kids out-grow those baby books quickly. It is great for the parents to be able to get new books regularly, but do not have to pay for each single book. With $3.99, if you find 2 books you like in the month, it is worth it.
