This is a great resources for people and children around the world to hear stories and tales from Asia and the surrounding areas. Other than the problems that naturally present themselves from translation, some pages are missing pictures. Some are missing text. But all in all, we love this app and the charming stories and pictures it provides! I have some ideas on how to improve the app, if anyone associated with it wants to hear.

I'm disappointed that I absolutely cannot find a single audio-book ("read aloud") for my child who cannot read, as it states in the description and shows in the screen shots. I really hope this is fixed, otherwise looks promising, but not for young kids who can't read without voice narrative

Hi Lindsay, Apologies for the frustration! You can find our audiobooks when clicking the green filter icon, which is next to the search bar. Under "Type," you can select "Audio" to see all of our audiobooks in the language you prefer. Hope that helps and please reach out to support@letsreadasia.org if you have any additional questions.

It's really a good app, but unfortunately the download option doesn't work. But if you fix it, it would be the best. Still recommend it

Thanks for the feedback! This might be a permissions issue where you need to grant access to local storage on the device. Go to the "Settings" app on your phone. Select "Privacy" > "Permission manager" > "Files and Media" and find the "Let's Read" app. Click on "Let's Read" and "Allow access to media only". Then you should be able to download.
