I'm Available for Download!
Remember recently I went to a recording studio, to read the narration for a series of picture books? Well, the company that produced the app - Fingersnthumbs - just emailed to say that the books are all finished and available on-line. These are just some of the ones I recorded:
The app allows children to explore the pages of the books with their 'fingers and thumbs' as I read the story to them, and it comes to life with interactivity. The app is also great for a child learning to read alone, as I'm told they can touch any word in a story and have me pronounce it for them.
I say 'I'm told' as the app is designed to work on an iPad and unfortunately I don't have one, so I haven't managed to hear myself yet (which might be a good thing...).
If you do have one though, you can download the free app and taster, as well as additional books here. Books currently cost just £1.19.
I had a quick look at the download page and found this lovely review of my efforts. Thank you, whoever you are:
"What a lovely Ap! Beautifully illustrated, this enchanting picture book is an absolute winner with my little one (aged 5). The voice of the narrator is lovely too - I could listen to her all day!!"
