Children books, reading apps & Anne Frank
If you know me at all, you'll know I love everything from children's books, even picture books, young adult, adult, horror, romance, fantasy... you name it.
 
I'm subscribed to Scribd which is a ebook reading service. $8.99 a month and you can read unlimited ebook & audiobooks they have on their website/app. With the sub, you get a free sub to another service, this one called FarFaria, which is a bunch of children stories; original stories just found on this app. Pretty cute stories. You can even have the stories read to you. :)
 
 
 
They have a classics section where they retell some classic or true stories. One was Anne Frank. I read this short story (10 pages or so) and it starts out happy, go lucky, like a typical cute picture book. Um.. okay.
 
 
I'm all for them getting kids introduced to Anne Frank and get them interested in her diary, but this story was just very, very, obviously condensed and some unsuspecting kid is going to get a shock on the last page where it does a huge time jump and says "oh, by the way, they died. Only the father survived. Go read Anne's diary. The end."
 
The app itself is pretty awesome. If you have a kid or are a kid at heart, check it out. If you don't have Scribd, the sub for this is $4.99, I believe. They are not long books, they don't take much brain power to read, but the artwork is really beautiful, and sometimes you just have to shut off your mind and enjoy something simple. It's like meditating, but with picture books. Plus, I will always have these on hand for whenever my niece or nephews are around.
 
I will be 80 years old and still be young at heart, because I never restricted myself on what I like based on an intended age group.
