Read Starfall Holiday Stories Aloud

Did you know that many of our holiday books include a fluency option that allows children to hear the text as well as read it?

This fluency option can be accessed to clicking the Ear button next to a sentence within the holiday book. This will read the text aloud so your child can hear the text and read it at the same time.

This fluency option is now available in an additional three holiday books -- Garden Shop, Find a Four Leaf Clover, and Spring Word Hunt. These updates will soon be included in our Starfall App as well.
