FarFaria Review Post & a Giveaway

Hi all!!  It has been so busy in our crazy house these past few days!  So much going on to try and get ready for the new school year and transitioning back into that daily routine!  1 more week until teachers report!

I wanted to share with you an app today!  I got my first "reach out" from a company to review and share their product for a free 6 month membership, and I gotta tell you, it's a good one!  It is called FarFaria and it is an app you can use on IPhone or Android devices.  I have looked at a lot of story/book apps now that peanut is starting to love books and well... my phone!  I have not been to thrilled with many of them so when I was contacted to check this one out, I'll admit I was a bit hesitant!  But I really do like it and it is only $4.99 a month for a subscription!
 
They have more than 750 stories and they add 5 new stories every week!  It is set up like a make-believe land and you can "explore" the different lands, for example there is Mt. Make Believe, Animal Kingdom, & Preschool Playground.
 
Seriously how cute is this?? You pick on the "land" that you want to discover and the stories match the theme!  There are fiction and non-fiction stories and Reagan loves them!  They are bright and colorful and keep her attention.  I also like the feature that allows it to be read aloud to the child which gives it an opportunity of independence for the child!
 



I actually plan on using this app at home with my little one, and on my Android tablet at school with my K-preppers!  The nonfiction stories will be great for my habitat units and the fiction ones will be great to use throughout the year!  We may even have the tablet in the library center for kiddos to use!

Now here is the best part!!  The company is willing to give one of my readers a free 3 month membership to try it out!  Use the rafflecopter below to enter!  Trust me, you will love this app!  If you aren't already a follower, become one and get 2 entries!
