Storytelling is crucial for children. What is more exciting for a child than coming home and relaying something important that happened at school, at lunchtime or on a play date? It can be very frustrating for some children who want to convey a story but don’t know how to due to difficulties with their narrative, sequencing and language skills. Start with this app and create simple and fun stories that are motivating and easy to follow along. This app is also great for children with special needs to help create social stories!
