Sofia the First: Story Theater App only $3.99

Yesterday January 11th was the premiere of the Disney Junior animated series “Sofia the First”.  My girls were so excited because they’ve been watching the same preview episode and was dying for more!!  In honor of the series,  Disney Publishing has released the first “Sofia the First” storybook app for iOS devices: Sofia the First: Story Theater. The app follows the show’s opening storyline and features the original voice of Sofia, narrated by ABC’s Modern Family star Ariel Winter, and the other characters of the TV show, including Sara Ramirez from Grey’s Anatomy as Sofia’s mother.

The new storybook app is perfect for beginning readers, featuring beautiful illustrations combined with elegant animation to tell an interactive story that is tailored to the iPad and iPhone experience with tappable elements on each story page. Children can even create and record personal stories as part of a digital story theater, providing them an opportunity to use their imagination and creativity to hand-select characters, backdrops, props and music to enrich their own story creation.

We downloaded it yesterday and it’s a really cute story.  The graphics are adorable and my 5 year old loved following along with the story.  The story is read to her but the words are there too. Since she’s learning to read, she tried really hard to read along and did a great job.

You can download it at iTunes for $3.99.

Sofia the First: Story Theater is available now $3.99 on the iTunes store:
