Is vooks any good for your kids?

The vooks app with its content will be very helpful for those kids who are not quite interested in reading alone but are eager to listen to the instructions. Also, it provides kids who can’t get enough of reading with a nice quiet time activity. Vooks is ok to use as it doesn’t contain ads or inappropriate content that may be offensive to children or any in-app purchases.

However, the downside of this app is that it cannot replace the experience of reading with an adult who can engage the kids with the content of what they are reading and also, it will bore out kids who are used to interactive devices by it slow pace narration and lack of interactivity. Also, the collection is said to seem small for the subscription fee, but there is an assurance that it’ll quickly change over time by the constant evolving of more collections.
