REVIEW: Starfall It's Fun To Read (best educational Android kids apps)
Bottom Line: Starfall It's Fun To Read teaches literacy through discovery, by introducing preschoolers to great works of art, famous composers, poets and more. Particularly useful for classroom tablets because it contains no ads, in-app purchases or external links.

Starfall.com to produce apps of high quality, and with content that is going to be a great supplement to educational programs. There are no difficulty levels, skill progression or progress tracking in Starfall It's Fun To Read and no option to set up individual profiles. It is simply a discovery tool for children to learn literacy through other subjects. This strategy is often used with students who have English as a Second Language (ESL) and I can see the potential also for students with special needs.
Summary: Literacy through music or art is a great concept that Starfall could develop further in this app. Recommended for its great educational content, and I would suggest students use this app in the presence of a teacher or parent. I will be using this app with my daughter in the coming term.
