FarFaria has a variety of reading topics to choose from including animals, classics, fairy tales, adventure, music, bed time.... You get the picture. And if you don't, here's a picture:
Each category is full of non-fiction and fiction books that can be sorted by reading level and interest.
You need to be connected to the internet to read and listen to stories. However, students can add books to their favorites, and those stories will be available even when off-line.
It may come as no surprise to you that I am obsessed with Grumpy Cat. So when I saw they had a book called "Grumpy Cat" it was the perfect photo finish for my very own grumpy kitty, Georgia.
The final test was seeing how well my students were able to maneuver this app. I gave it to this little nugget with ZERO directions. She quickly had accessed this book from my favorites, read and listened to the story and took her very own selfie.
Other great things about this app for adults-- they have a convenient"Parents" section. After passing the age test, I was able to quickly provide feedback directly to the FarFaria peeps. And I got a response within a day. You can also provide feedback after reading a story. I asked about the possibility of adding a "search" feature, and I was assured it is in the works!
