StoryTimeForMe encourages young children to pay more attention to reading, the free books are...
* made available and played as slow animations within a web browser. The animation of the books develops young children's interest;
* provide young readers with an interactive experience.
The text within each of the books is simple and highlighted while being read. The highlighting again develops young children's interest and encourages them to read the words that are displayed.
Through the controls located at the bottom of the page users can turn off the animation and the audio, highlight the narrated phrase, and manually turn pages of the book.
Clicking on individual words in the text results in them being read again and if underlined a pop-up image appears as well, to help understanding.
That's not all StoryTimeForMe has to offer; the books often contain socially relevant topics e.g. the books illustrate why children should not bully, why the environment should be cleaned, etc. Therefore StoryTimeForMe not only works to excite and engage children about reading, it also tries to teach them moral lessons.
Family Learning Practitioners, parents, guardians and carers will surely appreciate StoryTimeForMe
