To take advantage of modern technologies and to address the aforementioned challenges in keeping children’s attention while reading and listening to stories, the researcher of the project entitled “VRStories Virtual Reality Story Telling App” to develop aid to end the arising problem of this certain event. The App has different features that allow kids to interact and enjoy the story.
The project fills a void left by the old method of storytelling. To improve the present technique of narrating stories, the app creates evolutions and adds additional features. The kids will discover that reading is engaging and interesting with the proposed project application. The Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) method will be used to develop the system. To test and check the system, the researchers will gather a sample size of participating students, teachers, and other end users. To make adjustments, IT specialists will examine the system. Based on the advice of the experts, the researchers will improve the system.
The existences of mobile technologies are indeed purposeful and interactive. Through mobile applications, people can able to adapt the manual ways into a single application where everything is techno and digital-based. Whatever events, processes, related-schoolwork, office works can now be put into an application and make life’s burden easier.

Parents: Parents will be pleased with the outcome because their children are already reading stories. Apart from that, they will spend less money on books to read.
Researchers. They will gain a better insight and knowledge of the project as a result of the research.
Future Researcher. The study will inform them and act as a guide for their future research on the project.
According to a study, listening to and reading stories enhances a child’s vocabulary, speaking skills, and communication skills, therefore having a new gadget platform for conveying stories in a more participatory and enjoyable way is a must. Given that youngsters are constantly engrossed in their phones and use them in ineffective ways, why not create an application that allows kids to learn while still having fun through reading? It is tough for parents to get their children to listen to a story; this is how the VR storytelling application develops to take advantage of new technologies to learn more effectively. With all of the stated advantages and benefits of the project, this means that it should become into life.
Therefore, parents and even teachers permit the use of a VR application because it benefits youngsters in a variety of ways. The project’s beneficial factors are actually for the benefit of the children. It should be implemented and installed on the phones of all children.
