The app had a wide range of choices and genres of books. It had excellent quizzes, which the children loved! The age bands reflected the children’s reading age and the children thoroughly loved using it.

I introduced Pickatale for Schools to my class towards the end of the last academic year. The children were eager to use the app at home so I gave them log ins so they could read in their spare time. There are a range of levelled books on the app for the children to read; I like how there are quizzes at the end of many books to check comprehension and I also like how there is an option to listen to the books be read aloud. I aim to get my new class set up on Pickatale this year. Free for schools and another tool to get children reading. Would recommend.”
