I really liked the selection of books they had to offer. I have a 4 year old son and a 2 year old daughter, and there were plenty of books to read to both of the kids.

The books are really easy to flip through, are vibrantly colored and illustrated, and have impact on kids. It is an easy login. You can login via Facebook, Twitter, or email.

I chose this book to show my kids first, to see how they acted. Adisyn is all about animals, so I though this book was a good choice. She really liked it, and so did Aidan. Easy to read, easy to share {via Twitter and Facebook} and easy to purchase. The books are cheap being either $2.99 or $3.99, depending on the book. There are so many books to choose from that you and the kids will have a ball reading. Let them choose, and then help them make out the sounds. My kids are too young to read by themselves, but we did have super fun interacting with the books.

They have classics such as the Princess on the Pea as well as new books, and you can even design and sell your own BOOKS. That is amazing.

You can view this app on a laptop, Ipad, or Iphone. You get a free 15 day account to look around and check stuff out. This gives you a chance to make sure you want to purchase before you do. If you do decide to purchase, it is only $10 a month. This will save you money on gas for trips to the library, can keep the kids busy reading, and helps them learn. You kids are going to love it as much as you do. It is instant access, so you aren’t waiting for books to come in the mail, and you aren’t paying high shipping costs.  I don’t think you would have one ounce of doubt after purchasing.

Disclosure: This isn’t a sponsored post, all opinions in this blog post are my own. I did receive products to review, but this review is completely honest and in no way swayed by the chance to review.

I want to thank Utales for working with me, my kids and I have had tons of fun looking through their books.
