TESTIMONIALS
“Kid in Story. Finally a GREAT Social Story App!” Shannon Rosa, Squidalicious

“An excellent app if you are looking for more creative freedom in your child’s learning experiences.” KinderTown

5 Stars – “I am impressed and found it difficult to write this review without saying ‘It’s so easy and fun!’ every other sentence. The truth is that it performs as promised, is attractive and no bugs were found while putting it through the motions." Technology in Special Education

“By involving the child in making the social story, the child receives an in-depth social skills session and then the book can be sent to the child's parent or caregiver via email or Dropbox for ongoing reinforcement of the skills. We found the ability to customize the story by placing the child's photo into the scene to be highly motivating and engaging for all users.” BridgingApps

WHAT’S INSIDE KID IN STORY AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Kid in Story Book Maker templates come to life when you place your child or student’s picture on every page. The 20 story templates cover a variety of practical and fanciful topics from promoting good hygiene by washing your hands, to a playful exploration of emotions and facial expressions, to a fantasy visit to San Francisco! Older children can also write their own custom story or modify any of the templates as they see fit.

Here is how you can personalize the stories and share with friends and family:
Add your child’s photo into the story template background. Our unique Locolens™ image detection technology allows you to snap a portrait (or use one already saved in your library), and pluck your “kid” out of the picture and place him or her in the story.
Modify the story by editing the story templates
Record your own voice or the child’s voice as the narrator
Once complete, children will enjoy reading or playing their very own personalized visual story
Share it with others via email, pdf, or Dropbox.
