How It Works

Make reading fun by creating avatar characters of children, family, friends, and other community members to transport them into traditional and personalized children’s stories. You can change the background illustrative scenes, add diverse music compilations and sound effects, while using your own voice to personalize the stories through narration. Our app provides parents with the opportunity to create stories that are both personal and powerful in delivering impressive results in literacy development.

About Us

Children Story Time is an educational, entertaining application that provides early childhood learners, parents and caregivers the tools to download and customize culturally inclusive stories.

Children of color face a large educational achievement gap. Our mission is to bridge this gap through an educational and fun tool that can be used anywhere at any time, that improves reading and comprehension skills, and that is inviting to use because of its cultural inclusivity.
