FarFaria is a subscription based library for children 2-9 years old on your tablet or smartphone. It currently includes over 800 titles, with more being added weekly. It is subscription
If you have little bookworm at home, and don’t want to keep making daily trips to the library, this is the app for you. For just $4.99 a month, or $39.99 for the year.
I also found this app has intrigued my reluctant reader . My oldest is more of a math guy then a reader. However he is required to do home reading every night. Now that we have been using FarFaria, its just a matter of me asking him once to do his home reading. Before it would take me a while to get him to sit down and read.
I also find it has brought us together as a family to read together. I’ll sit down with Little Z, and we start reading, then the next thing you know the big kids are sitting with us. If we happen to be reading about something non-fiction, dad will even come a sit down too.
Your child starts off by choosing a island to visit.
Once you are on that island, a bookshelf of books appears based on what you selected. Each have a letter on the lower right corner indicating the reading level that book falls into.
What if your child is interested in a book, but the level indicates it is too difficult for them? Simple! Just select the Auto Play or Read to Me button and the book becomes an book and an audio book in one. Some of the books even highlight the words as they are read. I wish every book did this as it would be an awesome thing for little ones learning to read using the Glenn Doman inspired method.
Now for the best part! The wonderful people at FarFaria have given me two 3 month subscriptions to giveaway to some lucky readers!!
DISCLAIMER: I was given a subscription to try with my family in exchange for an honest review.
Looks like a GREAT resource! Thanks for writing about it.
Looks good! Thank you for the review!
Looks like it would be a great addition to our reading.
Looks great. Thanks for the giveaway. Shall explore it with 3-9 year olds. Plus I am never too old for a good picture book right?

Thanks for the information, my children are 3 and 1 so very into books we read around 20 a day at present!
I have a 3 and 5 yo, I think this would be great to use with both of them!
