FarFaria App

I wanted to share my absolute favorite app.  I didn't find out about it until the very end of the school  year, so I didn't get to use it in the classroom last year.  But, you can bet I will be using it next year.  It is called FarFaria.  Have you heard about it?

If not, you really must check it out.  I am always searching for great on-line literature, and it's really hard to find great books at an affordable price.  Let me show you a few screen shots to show why I am totally excited about this app.

This is the map of the app.  It gives children lots of choices. I love that it has a Preschool Playground Spot for little ones. Although my 4 year old always chooses the big boy books, as you'll see below.

The app allows you to save your favorites in a special little spot, which is awesome when you're on a car drive and away from the Wifi. You can play any of the books in your favorites without Wifi.

Yikes, I wonder if my little guy has a thing for scary monsters- check out the books he placed in his favorites!

There are so many ways to search for books.  You can search by most popular, newest additions, reading levels, or even title.  How great is that!!!  They even add 5 new books a week.  I think there are already over 600 books to choose from, which is pretty amazing!

 Below is a peek at the Genius Jungle.  Check out all the great nonfiction titles.

I'm  so excited to use this with my students next year.  I know my students will absolutely love it.  My campus is always asking us what apps we would like to have purchased.  This one is at the top of my list when we sit down to talk apps for next year!!!  To check it out further, you can click here. Hope you love this app as much as I do :)


  1. Is the genius jungle an app?

  2. Yes, Genius Jungle is a part of the Farfaria app. It's one of the places to visit on the storybook map within the app.
