Hello to all our listeners, it has been awhile since our last podcast, and we just wanted to let you know a new story is on its way. In the meantime, please visit The Story Home.com website and explore our library of over 100 stories. Classics such as “Beauty and the Beast”, “Jack in the Beanstalk”, and many originals stories by your storyteller, Alan. So far, we have been happy to offer over 2.5 million free story downloads to families, libraries and schools, but now we are asking for your support to keep our doors open. You can purchase The Story Home iPhone and iPad app, or purchase our stories on the website.
Thank you for your support and the many kind comments and letters you have sent.
Please vote for The Story Home so that we are able to qualify for a grant from Chase. This grant will help us to continue to create new and exciting content for children, teachers and parents. We have big plans for The Story Home, but in order to bring these ideas to fruition we need the support.
The Story Home iPad App is here, and available in the iTunes store in the “Books” Category. We released the App on January 4th and by the 6th the app was featured in the “New and Noteworthy” section. We are very proud of our iPad App and happy to say that it is getting rave reviews. To learn more about all our apps you can visit our app web page at http://thestoryhome.com/app.
The Story Home App is almost here! We are thrilled to share this special news.
The App will be available on on itunes in the App/Book/Education Categories for your iPhone, iTouch and iPad. Also, there will be, in the near future, a special link placed The Story Home home page.
You will notice that the stories will sound better (we’ve remastered each of our 75 stories) and we are adding sound effects to many of the stories such as Cinderella , Jack in the Beanstalk, and Pegasus and the Magic Stone. Wait until you hear the Jack’s Giant say “Fee Fi Fo Fum”. You’ll think he’s standing right behind you!
The app is currently nearing the end of the design stage; testing and reviewing will start soon.
We will keep you posted, until then, we wish you a fond farewell…
The American Library Association honored The Story Home by including it in their top twenty “Outstanding Websites for Children.” The more we found out about the ALA’s dedicated service to our fine public libraries, the prouder we were. The greatest gift, however, is the award of having faithful and appreciative listeners like you! (Find out about the ALA by clicking on their seal located in the clouds on the right).
