SPEAKABOOS LOGOMulti-platform storybook subscription service Speakaboos has launched its first iPad application.

The Speakaboos app introduces children ages 2-6 to an ever-expanding library of more than 150 storybooks with interactive features. The app will encourage kids to read and keep them reading more by providing on-the-go access via mobile devices.

Developed by Dr. Alice Wilder, the mind behind research and testing for Blue’s Clues and SuperWHY!, and the development team that built  NickJr.com,  Speakaboos’ library is curated to fit children’s interests.  Each story is tested by kids to ensure reading comprehension and engagement.

Speakaboos’ titles come from publishers and content owners such as The Jim Henson Company, ABRAMS, and Charlesbridge and include classic stories such as The Three Little Pigs and new storybooks such as The Haunted Party, Aggie and Ben, and The ABC Song, with additional titles added weekly.  Within the app, stories come alive through captivating narration, read-along text, animated characters, story-based games and touchscreen interactions that support comprehension.
