Through our ever evolving technology, knowledge is now at every child’s fingertips. Though some would still disagree on introducing gadgets to young children, I have to admit that it has its pros and cons. Just like all things in life, proper moderation and rules in using gadgets goes a long way.

Recently, I learned about a new app called FarFaria. Basically, it’s an app with a whole library of children’s books. Through this app, children have the option of reading a variety of books on their own, or with the help of the application. FarFaria is an app that provides the perfect story time experience. With more than 750 amazing children’s stories—and five new ones added each week—story time has never been easier.



Farfaria best caters to children ages 2-9. More than just being used at home, teachers like myself can also use this app for storytelling in class, or to encourage individual reading during free play. FarFaria helps children develop a passion for reading and encourages families to spend quality time reading together. FarFaria’s engaging story-discovery experience encourages children to stumble into new stories they’ll love forever.



I tried using Farfaria in class with my 4-5 year old students. At first, they ignored the application. To them, an iPad was only used for games and the like. However, after showing them just how many stories they could choose from, their interest started growing, and now, they even started picking their favorite stories from the online library themselves.



I’m a firm believer of the classics, and regardless how good this app may be, it is still no substitute for an actual book. However, Farfaria does have it’s perks
