Alexa Says “Good Grief!!”

Alexa has some awesome new expressions. Alexa can say funny things such as “oh boy,’ “good grief,” and “aw man!” We’ve been busy re-tooling our Hutch stories and the Tricky Genie scenarios so they take advantage of Alexa’s amusing expressions.

Amazon calls these new elements speechcons and they make a great addition to the type of kids’ stories that we offer with our two popular family friendly skills: Listening Comprehension Practice and Tricky Genie.

Just ask Alexa to enable “Tricky Genie” and then say “Alexa, play Tricky Genie” or “Alexa, ask Tricky Genie for a story.” You’ll get a chance to hear some of the latest Tricky Genie stories that use the new expressions.

If it’s a fun story you’re looking for,  ask Alexa to enable “Listening Comprehension Practice” and then say “Alexa, ask Hutch for a story.” The stories about the middle-schooler Hutch are amusing and geared towards younger children. The new Alexa expressions add pizzazz to the stories to help hold the attention of younger listeners. Children have a chance to sharpen their listening comprehension skills at the end of the story by answering a few questions.

Please leave us a five-star review in the Alexa app if you enjoy Tricky Genie and Listening Comprehension Practice and share with your friends!
