Good Free App of the Day: Lego Friends Story Maker - write and save a story

Pick scenery, choose characters, add props and write stories using words or record them with your voice. Each page can be something new and different, and each story can be saved and shared. There is so much to do in this free app, and it features the enchanting Lego Friends. There is so much potential in this app for imagination and to make a variety of stories. Upon completing a story, the author can save it to their iBooks shelf and read it again and again.

This app is super cute and really open-ended, which I love. Little Miss M wrote a story about the giant girl and her tiny friend. This was inspired because she could stretch the characters and shrink them as well by dragging. She wrote another story about classmates putting on a play. There are so many different choices and combinations possible to use to create truly unique and exciting stories.

This app can be used in groups with each person doing their own page, for interactive play or for social stories. The possibilities truly seem to stretch as big as the user's imagination. I am always excited to read or listen to whatever stories my children may create.

don't involve tiny pieces connecting with her bare feet in the dark of the night.
