For a limited time only, two of Disney Publishing Worldwide’s well-received read-along apps for iPad – Toy Story 2 Read-Along app and Princess and the Frog Read-Along app – will be available in the iTunes store at 50% off the original price! Consumers can now experience these fully interactive children’s reading apps for $3.99.
These are two great interactive eBook titles. They both cover popular movies that should resonate with many younger kids, and they’re both very well done in eBook app form. My daughter and I have both enjoyed the Toy Story 2 (and 3) apps very much.
Here’s more detail about the two titles, via the press release on the sale:
The read-along apps for iPad give children a fully interactive reading experience packed with exciting games, sing-along tunes, multi-touch surprises, puzzles, and coloring pages. Children can hear the story read aloud, record their own narration, or explore at their own pace.
Both read-along apps feature the following highlights:
· Cinematic, interactive storybook apps featuring characters from Toy Story 2 and Princess and the Frog.
· Two interactive reading modes allow kids to follow along as the story is read aloud, or explore at their own pace. Children can also select ‘Younger Reading Mode’ to simplify page turning.
· Children can play exciting games based on scenes from Toy Story 2 and Princess and the Frog. Kids can watch Woody soar above the town, help him to safety in “Hang Glider,” and have a blast with Buzz as they overcome thrilling obstacles in “Falling with Style.” Children can also discover their fortune with a mystifying interactive card game, or help Tiana and Naveen escape the bayou by catching fireflies in Princess and the Frog.
· Children can record their voice reading the story and hear it played back as narration.
· Children can tap characters and objects for sound effects and fun surprises.
· An interactive coloring feature that lets kids finger-paint and share their masterpieces with friends and family.
· Kids can sing along to songs from the movie.
· A visual page index allows kids the ability to jump to their favorite page.
· Children can turn pages manually and move back and forth through the story as they wish.
