We're thrilled to announce Season 1 of our new Netflix series, Story Time Book: Read-Along, featuring 40 favorite Vooks titles compiled into 8 themed episodes. This first-of-its-kind show invites kids to read along as their favorite storybooks come to life in each specially curated episode, including "Science, Letters, and Numbers," "Adventurous Tales," "Fuzzy Friends," "Bedtime," and more.
We couldn’t be more excited to bring the power of Vooks’ proprietary animated read-along storybooks to the massive Netflix audience. “Our team is thrilled to have Vooks content in the Netflix library," says Joey Jenkins, CEO of Vooks. "My wife and our kids already love so many of the quality titles on Netflix. For Vooks to join that list of entertaining and educational options for kids is very, very exciting.”
Story Time Book is everything you've come to expect from Vooks—beautiful animation, engaging music and sound effects, and paced read-along, read-aloud, highlighted narration—but now available through the most popular streaming service in the world. Vooks has already gone viral among teachers and educators, and now our animated storybooks will be accessible to millions more kids around the globe through Netflix.
Allison Wolfe, Director of Programming and Strategy at Vooks, was integral in bringing this series to the Netflix platform and worked closely with the Netflix team to ensure a quality viewing and learning experience for all. "Kids (and their parents!) love Netflix, and now families can experience Vooks animated storybooks on the platform they know and love," says Wolfe. "Whether they want to laugh aloud with silly animals, learn about the solar system, or snuggle up for a bedtime story, the Netflix series has a diverse offering from the Vooks library that will delight every child."
While the series (like all Vooks titles) aims to engage and entertain little ones, at its heart is education and inspiring a lifelong love of reading in children. “An early love of reading is widely considered one of the most important indicators of a child’s future success in life—and Vooks is the easiest, most engaging, and most accessible-for-all-learning-levels way to develop that lifelong love of reading," says Russell Hirtzel, Vooks Co-Founder and Chief Content Officer. "Vooks brings kids’ favorite stories to life and impacts their growing minds like never before. Our animated storybooks are an incredible tool, turning the content kids crave into a truly life-changing educational experience.”
