Three Month Subscription Giveaway to Farfaria!!

Have you heard of Farfaria? Yes? No? Maybe? What on earth is Farfaria you ask? Well, let me tell you about it…

I was contacted by Zach over at Farfaria (who is super sweet by the way) and he asked me to review this app called Farfaria from the App Store.  Like most of you, I had no idea what Farfaria was!  He gave me access to the app and let me tell you, the app blew my socks off! I am totally not kidding either! I am not one of those people who would waste your time if I didn’t believe a product wasn’t worth it. But this folks, this product is worth it! 

First, it’s so easy to get on and start using the app.  It is definitely kid-friendly, wonderful, and colorful!  The home screen has some of the newest and most popular titles kids around the world are reading.  Then, you have the option to “See the World” and this is where it gets good!

When you click on “See the World” (STW) it shows you a map of different lands (reading genres) your kids can click on. When you enter each land, it contains TONS and TONS of books that will keep your child or student busy and READING for hours. Each land is categorized by, Most Popular, Titles A-Z, Newest Books, and get ready for this….READING LEVEL! Hello! Isn't that amazing! If you are a teacher or parent, we all know how important it is for your child to read appropriate level books because they get so much more out of it, especially the big monster kids struggle with most, comprehension! Oh, and even if you don’t click on Reading Level, each book cover page has a number level on it. It takes the guessing game out for you! The only books that do not have Reading Levels on them are ones that parents or teachers should read to their child/student because it is teaching them something not to do like, “tattling” or “whining”. If you are interested in those books, you would go to Goodland!

Reading levels range from Pre-k to about fourth grade.  Each level for each land has so many books!  They are interesting because they “hook” the reader and the digital illustrations are superb. Oh, yea, almost forgot, each book gives your child the options to, read it to themselves, auto-play, or play (your child will have to “turn” the page).

If you have younger students like at a pre-school level, they have an entire land dedicated to them! Super easy one word colorful illustrations and photographs! They even have the classical nursery rhymes we grew up with. 

Do you have a child that loves music? Well, Sing-Along City is the place for your child.  Your child can have the option to play the book and the readers will sing it to them. It’s really great, I’m telling you!

I know lots of kids that love expository texts.  Well, Farfaria has a land called Genius Jungle that has books from reading level 2-4. I am totally going to use this when we come to text features next year!

Farfaria, adds new books every week, EVERY WEEK!!! So your child(ren)/students will never get bored!
You will need internet access to read the books, BUT Farfaria has given your child the option to “favorite” a book and they can read it offline. It’s a great idea if you’re going to be traveling this summer!

Now, I can go on and on about Farfaria but I know you guys are busy and don’t want to take your time anymore! So Farfaria is going to be giving away a membership to their wonderful app to one of my lucky readers, trust me, you want to enter.  Like I said, if it wasn’t worth it, I wouldn’t be blogging about it!  The app itself is free, but if you want unlimited access, it’s $3.99 a month. But think about, if you were to go to your bookstore, you are paying that much and even more for one book! I rather pay $3.99 for HUNDREDS of books!

So what are you waiting for, enter the giveaway and give that special child in your life the gift of reading!
