Storytelling starts with narration. Reading starts with reading aloud.

Jumbaya's read-along feature combines both, kickstarting your child's early reading skills.

Bedtime stories have always been an integral part of children's lives and for a good reason. Not only do they provide a calming routine for children before bed, but they also help to improve language skills, increase creativity and imagination, and instil valuable life lessons. With the rise of technology and the increasing availability of digital storybooks, the way we experience bedtime stories is evolving. One key feature that sets digital storybooks apart is the "read-along" option.

The read-along feature is a game-changer for kids and their parents, especially those looking for a better bedtime story experience. Check out the 7 wonders of Jumbaya’s ‘Read-Along’ Storybooks! These are just a few ways the read-along feature in Jumbaya's story app can improve storytime for kids:

Improving language skills: We incorporate a read-along feature in our short stories for kids. This "Same Language Subtitling" (SLS) helps kids comprehend the story better. By highlighting words and working at an optimum pace, children can make a stronger visual connection with the text and improve their vocabulary, phonetics, and expression.

Encouraging creativity and imagination: When kids can follow along with the story as it's being read, they become more engaged and invested in the story. This leads to a more immersive experience, which can help to spark creativity and encourage imagination.

Building strong family bonds: The read-along feature also offers a "read-together" option, allowing kids to connect with their grandparents or loved ones and read a story together. This facilitates a traditional way to read bedtime stories for kids in this digital age. And it not only provides a fun and interactive experience, but can also help to strengthen the bond between family members.

Instilling life lessons and values: Stories for kids can be powerful tools for introducing them to life lessons, values, and attitudes. With the read-along feature, kids can better understand the story and the important messages it conveys. 

In conclusion, the read-along feature of digital storybooks is an excellent way to improve the reading experience for kids. By improving language skills, encouraging creativity and imagination, building strong family bonds, and instilling life lessons, the read-along feature is a valuable tool for parents and teachers alike. When you're looking for stories for children, a digital storybook with a read-along feature is a great choice. Try it today and see the difference it makes in your child's reading routine.
