MarksvilleandMe takes a look at FarFaria
Even though I have done other reading site reviews, this is one my husband actually got to see in action and thought the kids would enjoy as much as I did. PreK-4th grade reading levels are included. You can read one story a day for free or you can buy a membership starting at 4.99 a month up to 59.99 for lifetime membership which we might just do at the end of my review time.
Both of my younger daughters can use this as well as my grand daughters so it will be well worth the one time membership to do this for them. You can read the books to your child, they can read them, or if you wish they have a automatic read to me which turns the pages and reads or a read to me in which you or the child turns the pages.
What I found a little different about this site over others is that they even had a songs category, and if you pick automatic read to me it turns the pages and sings the words to you or the child. I like that on nights when I get busy, we all know those nights my daughters can pick out a book and have it read to them. They are still being read to and they always tell me which book they choose so I can review it later.
I don't have to worry about them reading something I don't agree with because there are no grown up books to choose from, just books within their reading levels. While I was writing this I had FarFaria on singing Christmas Carols to me. Even as a grown up I find it very delightful. Below you can enter to win a 3 month membership to try it out for yourself.
