Vooks is a fantastic tool I think. It is a combination of creativity, learning and fun! For sure reading a book to your child is fantastic. My kids love watching Vooks when we are out and about and this is so much more wholesome than simply playing games. The books are creative because of the graphic design incorporating with moving pictures and sound! I think it is wonderful for young kids. My kids get angry and unregulated watching youtube or playing games. This is a perfect solution!

UPDATE: they have fixed the bug that caused the app to crash constantly. Out works great now, yay! I love that it is not just another screen. The reading pace is great for kids to be able to follow along. Huge variety of books to choose from. Highly recommend. I can not get anything to play on the app. Every time I try, it says there is an unexpected error and restarts the app.

This app is absolutely one of my favorite! Everything in it is made with such quality! The rhythm, clarity, and tone of the voices that read the stoeies are delight ; The music and soundscape are sublime! Extremely well done, and appropriate! The pictures are fair to the illustrations in the book, they are beautifully paced and move smoothly! It's nothing like the cartoons or shows for kids that are offered nowadays, where everything is so fast paced, loud, and dizzying busy!! Excellent job!
