Pickatale for Schools

Build reading confidence. Make reading fun!


“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.”

For me, the best use of technology is when it’s practical and it enhances and transforms what we can do. Pickatale’s platform of accessible, interactive digital books is a great way to engage children with their reading. It works great as an addition to the physical books they already love.
