Wee Read Wednesday: Epic! App

This post is part of a partnership with Epic! books. I became a customer first and loved the app so much I asked if they would partner with me to tell you all about it. Be sure to read the whole thing because there is a little something-something for you at the end :)

I'm doing something a little different today. Instead of bringing you a review of a children's book, I'm bringing you countless children's books!

I want to tell you all about the Epic! app. I discovered the Epic! app almost by accident one day while I was browsing the Play store for a reading app for my daughter. Epic! looked interesting so I downloaded it to give it a try. Best decision ever!

Back up a minute. What is Epic!? I'm glad you asked :)

The Epic! app brings more than 10,000 children's book right to your child's device (or computer). I like to compare it to some of the book subscription services out there for adults, but it is only kid books. And they have so many titles. 

I quickly created a profile for my daughter, and from the parent account, I could set email preferences and such. Then I helped my daughter log in from her tablet. She was able to pick a profile picture, and we selected the general genres of books she typically enjoys. From there, she was off!

She has been so excited to be able to pick up her tablet and read pretty much anything she wants. After reading several books, the app begins to know what types of books the child enjoys and suggestions appear to help them decide on new books to read. My daughter has quickly become a fan of The Boxcar Children - oh the memories!

As a parent, I also love the reading log emails I get. I open my email and have a list of each book she has read, how many pages she read, and how long she spent reading the particular book. At the end of the month, I also received a printable certificate for her to keep up with how many books she read that month. Plus, she earns badges and awards within the app for reading challenge completions.

Another feature I really enjoy about this app is if we are going to be traveling, we can download a couple of books for her to have access to without an internet connection. I also like that we can set her age and it recommends age-appropriate books.

The Epic! app does cost $4.99 per month, but I believe it is well worth it for my children to have access to the more than 10,000 books available. I encourage you to check out Epic! from either the Play Store or the iTunes store and give it a try.

To make it even easier, Epic! is offering my readers TWO MONTHS FREE to try the Epic! app. But hurry, this offer is only good until the end of day May 27th. Just visit this link, and use promo code EPICTINGSMOM.

I'd love for you to come back and let me know what you think!
