My daughter loves to read. She will curl up on the couch and tear through an entire stack of library books in an afternoon. When I came across the MeeGenius app a few weeks ago, I realized it might be a life changer for both of us. MeeGenius is any-device digital library with 700 classic and original children’s titles, offering optional “read-to-me” narration and word highlighting which promotes reading comprehension.
With over 700 hand selected, quality books to choose from, MeeGenius is like your child’s own personal library to go. It works on most current desktops, laptops or iOS devices (including iPhone, iPad and iPod touch).
MeeGenius is different from other reading apps in several ways. First – you can choose to have the story read or turn the narration off and read it aloud yourself. Second, the stories are recorded by professional narrators, and because of this the stories included proper pronunciation and emotion. So crucial to emerging readers. Third, each story is selected after careful consideration by the MeeGenius staff. I never worry about Bella reading something even slightly inappropriate.
I love it because it offers literacy as a choice over a game or movie at a time when it’s usually easier to pick the latter – like in the car, for some down time, or when I’m working at home. 50 MeeGenius books take up the same amount of downloaded space as one HD movie, so Bella can read when we’re on the go and without internet. It’s perfect for:
- Homeschooling parents
- Grandparents/relatives to give as gifts
- Children who are struggling with reading
- Parents who want their child exposed to more quality literature
MeeGenius’ new Reading Club enables you to gift an unlimited library of books to a child in your life. Reading Club allows consumers to buy unlimited access to top titles on MeeGenius, with the option for friends and family to gift for the holidays via email or with a physical gift card. Parents can purchase gift cards, cobranded with MeeGenius and PBS KIDS branding, for Reading Club subscriptions.
