About this app

BookBox brings you animated stories in English, French, Spanish, Hindi and more. Many more 'AniBooks' and languages are on the way. The stories are powered by Same Language Subtitling (SLS), a scientifically proven feature to improve reading, vocabulary, and listening comprehension skills.

Watch your kids have fun with the app as they subconsciously improve their reading and language skills in their first and second language(s).
 
BookBox was born from a social innovation competition at Stanford University. Yes, first prize!

Very useful, but it is lagging constantly, the videos wont play. It keeps showing as if it was loading, and it is not a problem of my internet connection. Sadly I had to uninstall the app. Also, if there were more videos of more stories it would be even better, I saw only few stories.

A little disappointed. On YouTube, they had stories in Esperanto, but none in the app. Update: 10.23 language is now available, but YouTube videos aren't loading for any language.

Sad how I thought Asante would be here. There are 3 books from BookBox that are on YouTube in Asante. Lost interest when it wasn't on the app. Asante books are extremely hard to find and I would've loved this app if it included Asante. Twi (Asante/Akan) is a very uncommon language to learn, but many would love to learn, like myself. Please, add Asante if possible. I'll give 5 stars once I see it. And please, make more Asante books other than just 3. Medaase. <3
