My wife and I are primary school teachers in Papamoa – and we just released our first app for iPad & iPhone (it's universal!). The idea for StoryBot came from working with one of my students who has Down's Syndrome. I needed a way that he could engage with sentence structure, essential words and reading. It turns out it's a really powerful tool for any kids who are learning to put sentences together and in the formative stages of reading and word identification. It's also a really fun way to make shared stories to share with your child, or for your child to create shared stories to share with you.

Here's what people are saying about StoryBot:
"This application is perfect for sentence structure". Jessica C. -Speech Language Pathologist.
"This app has been a great educational tool and puts the creativity in the hands of the parents and the child". APPreciation Review.
"What a wonderful creative App this is. I love apps that allow for such open ended fun and learning". Tea M. -Mum
"A great learning tool – I brought this app with the expectation of using it in the classroom with new entrant children. It does not disappoint. I can already see how using this program alongside the children will increase their knowledge of high frequency words and basic sentence structure. It is easy to use – young learners will have no trouble navigating their way through it. I also like that we can make our own stories to make it authentic and learner orientated".
