Websites & Apps: iStory Books

I have recently bought myself a tablet, which once in awhile I use for more than just playing Candy Crush, so I decided it would be a good idea to share with you some of my favourite Apps. 

iStory Books is a great resource for my class, particularly since I teach students for whom English is their second language and we have limited access to English books. I allow my students to use headphones or you can attach speakers to your tablet so that a group of students can listen together. 

The App has a number of free books and Premium books available, with the option of adding more to your library. You can actually access these books online at https://www.istorybooks.co/

The Busy Body
What Every Organism Needs
Food Chain
The Amazing Life of Helen Keller
Violet's Gift
Kumba Am and Kumba Amul: A Gambian Folk Tale
Sea Animals
The Fish Snatcher
Cock-a-Doodle-Moo!
Cinderella (In English & Spanish)
The Ugly Duckling
Little Red Riding Hood
Things That Go
The Little Red Hen
Stone Soup

A-Z Fruits & Vegetables (Preschool, Junior and Yummy Rhymes)

The Blue Fox (In English & Spanish)
The Crow, the Doves and the Mouse (In English & Spanish)

Premium Books

Clicking on the book, opens it up and the story begins.
