"Alexa, enable Bamboo Books skill"
We introduced the kids to Bamboo Books, and now they can listen and follow along to classic stories like Peter Pan on our Amazon Fire tablet, and participate in exercises to help with their listening and reading comprehension. Bamboo Books actually enhances our story time with them, which we still do regularly; the kids also do Bamboo Books on their own, and we know they are getting a high-quality experience that’s educational and fun for them.
