How to Raise a Reader


Music and Media Reading Apps


Toddlers and Preschoolers will love interactive book apps as well as letter recognition, literacy, and language skills apps which provide a great foundation for reading. As you and your toddler go through the “pages” of this electronic pop-up book, you will enjoy hearing animal sounds, and discover fun surprises as you touch the various objects in the illustrations. Individual words are also pronounced with the touch of the finger. Electronic book apps can provide a good foundation for book knowledge such as reading from left to right or where to read on a page. Other literacy apps provide letter sounds, letter recognition, rhyming, alphabetic knowledge, listening and comprehension skills, book enjoyment and knowledge and writing skills.
  1. Zook Discovers the Seasons- Each season (summer, autumn, winter and spring) has its own unique panoramic environment to be explored. Along the way, the young player will discover a number of funny animated characters, some of which come with simple scientific information. Once all the challenges for the four seasons have been successfully completed, the child can join in the big festival!
  2. Dr. Panda School- Let your imagination run wild in Dr. Panda School! Create and tell your very own stories through exploring and roleplaying with the school, students and any objects you discover along the way!
  3. Reading Raven- Help your children learn to read with their own personal reading adventure guide! With the Reading Raven companion guiding them along, children will go on delightful fun-filled adventures where they will encounter fly eating frogs, caterpillars that turn into butterflies, circus acrobats, ball balancing seals, underwater sea creatures, snow monsters, flying penguins, space robots, rhyming rockets, and much more!
