I love apps that have stories to read with the kiddos, especially ones that are educational too! The new app Kazaz!
Kazaz! encourages children not only to read, but to immerse themselves in learning by clicking on gems hidden throughout the app which reveal fun facts with additional information related to the story topic, potentially expanding a 10-minute read into a highly engaging learning experience that lasts for an hour or more.
I downloaded it this week for the kiddos and they loved it!! The three stories are The Music Man, The Story of Wooding and The Magic of Kazaz!
o The Magic of Kazaz: Reveals the history of how Kazaz! became a magical planet. This story will always be free.
o I Am the Music Man: Sing along with the Music Man in this hand-clapping, toe-tapping rendition of a classic children’s melody.
o The Story of Wooding: The tale of an adventurous young swan who sets off on an exciting journey.
There were all kinds of fun facts that you can learn while exploring the island too! Shoot, some things I didn’t even know! Very educational, while being fun at the same time!
You can download the app here.
This is only the beginning for Kazaz! and its parent company, American Story Channel. Future plans include additional stories, more sophisticated gamification experiences, availability in 11 languages, 3D figures in real gold and silver, and a children’s animated TV series, among other exciting developments — follow Kazaz! on Facebook and Twitter for updates!
