I love storyline online. It has fostered a love of books for my grandson who thinks he doesn't like to read. It's always work just fine but the last few days the stories won't load. I can open the app and I can choose a story but when I click on the story only a white screen will show. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and still cannot open a story.

This app is amazing! My daughter and I listen to the stories every night at bedtime. I love that there are now stories being included in Spanish as well! I've even been using this with my students during remote learning.

Love this app, but the story library will not load. I have only had the app for a week. It has been several days and no fix. The website updated, the app booklist needs updated as well, or at least show the same books from before. My son is heartbroken that his new book app won't show him any books.
