A Cute Interactive eBook for Young Readers

An Interactive eBook for Young Readers

I just watched a very interesting You Tube video about a cute children's book entitled, The Slightly Annoying Elephant, by David Walliams.  The hardback copy can be purchased on Amazon, but there is also an interactive ebook version sold in the iBooks Store (for iPads) and on iTunes (for computers). 

The ebook comes with many tap animations and sound effects to keep young listeners engaged.  When the story ends, readers have the option of participating in several story related activities. There's a memory game, a coloring page, a seek-and-find page, an elephant workout page, and much, much more.

Check out the video and see for yourself. 

All of the activities were made in widget format and created by a company called Bookry.  The Bookry Blog will give you more information about this technology. 

Leave a comment and tell us if you liked the book.
