The developers have done a magnificent job making this app easy to use and fun. With simple arrows at the bottom of each page for children to move through the app easily and a narration option for pre-readers, this app is quite intuitive and easy to use. The interactive illustrations are great for little ones to explore as they only require a simple tap to bring them to life. Overall this app is very well done.


We feel that most books are educational on some level, as an interesting story promotes a love of reading.

This app doesn’t include word highlighting which would enhance it’s educational appeal.


Having a pet monster who rides bikes and turns out to be an awesome circus performer? This story is full of silly illustrations and an engaging storyline that will keep children entertained for hours. Sure to be a bedtime favorite, this storybook app has lots of interactive illustrations, and sound effects children will love. While there aren’t any additional activities separate from the story, there are a few game-like activities included in the story that will keep children entertained.


Priced at just under two dollars, this is one storybook app that won’t break the bank and is totally worth the price. Parents will quickly find this to become a bedtime favorite to be read over and over again and at this price you can’t beat it. While it does’t have the extras some stories have, the story itself along with the interactive pieces makes it a great value.

Child Friendliness

Easy to use and safe too, Even Monsters Are Shy is great for children of all ages. With simple arrows to help children move from page to page and narration options throughout this app is quite intuitive. The developers have not included text-highlighting which could help early readers follow along and work on their own reading skills, however the rest of the app is still easy to use.

Parents will be happy to know there aren’t any social media links or in app purchases to be concerned with. There is an information button located on the main page that provides access to additional apps by the same developer and it is protected.
