Thanks to the automatic narration, children can enjoy these books with or without adult interaction, making them great for car trips and grocery lines when parents may be unavailable.
PicPocket’s books on the iPad offer a way to keep your children entertained and stimulated without resorting to mindless gaming. Instead of slicing up fruit or launching birds, kids can do something that’s both fun and educational. With a wide selection of subject matter and reading levels, there’s something for everyone, from very young children on up.
The creators of PicPocket books remain true to the original books, adding only a small amount of animation and interactivity – just enough to provide a digital experience without overshadowing the process and simple joy of reading.
