My kids love to read. And I love that about them. I have so many fond memories of the different books I read when I was a kid. I’m still kind of bummed that I told my mom I didn’t want the complete set of The Boxcar Children books we had. My kids would have loved those stories. They love to read so much that we had to ban our son from taking his brand new book he purchased at the school book fair because he was reading it when he should have been doing other things at school!

Bella really likes to read on my iPad and that’s good because the American Story Channel launched Kazaz!, which has interactive and animated stories! With this app, kids don’t just read a story, they EXPERIENCE it!
What’s So Great About Kazaz!?
First of all, children don’t just read the stories, they learn by clicking on different gems hidden throughout the app and those gems revel fun facts and additional information that is related to the story topic! Not only are they learning, but it is allowing kids to expand a 10 minute story into a learning experience that can last an hour or more!! Bella absolutely LOVES things like this! Have multiple children…no problem! Kazaz! allows you to create up to three profiles so each child can maintain their own gems!
Kazaz! is perfect for kids between the ages of three and eight. I like that it is an app that children can experience independently or with an adult! Right now, Kazaz! is absolutely FREE through October 26th in the iTunes App Store!
- The Magic of Kazaz is the history of how Kazaz! became a magical planet. This will always be a free story.
- I Am the Music Man is a story where you sing along with the Music Man. Right now it is free when you download the app through October 26th, but will be $1.99 after that.
- The Story of Wooding is the tale of a young swan that sets off on an exciting journey. It is free with the app download through October 26th, but is $2.99 after that.
Sounds great, doesn’t it?!? Kids can extend their experience by visiting the website and via the Kazaz! Post, which is the planet’s exclusive newspaper. Oh…that’s not all…Kazaz! will eventually take advantage of Apple TV so the app can be enjoyed on the big screen!
What Does the Future for Kazaz! Look Like?
Future plans include additional stories, more sophisticated gamification experiences, availability in 11 languages, 3D figures in real gold and silver, and a children’s animated TV series…and so much more!
