San Francisco, California – Wanderful Interactive Storybooks, a leader in the development of interactive storybook apps designed for today’s digital kids, announces the Wanderful Weekend – a five day celebration of interactive story apps Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday.
Each day Wanderful will feature one of its storybook apps at half price. This includes the award-winning Harry and the Haunted House, Arthur’s Teacher Trouble starring PBS-favorite Arthur, and the newly-released Berenstain Bears Get In A Fight. These apps are all part of Wanderful’s new collection for iOS of the classic interactive storybooks originally published by Living Books. All Wanderful apps are on the App Store – just search “Wanderful storybooks.”
Adding to the celebration, Wanderful will be giving away free copies of each Wanderful App in the Wanderful Weekend Sweepstakes. Details are at the the Wanderful website and Wanderful’s Facebook Page.
Wanderful apps are highly intuitive and encourage children to explore each storybook page deeply for all its hidden content. With extended animation and hundreds of interactive antics, the apps provide a richer interactive experience on one page than many other story apps offer in a whole book.
To provide a multilingual reading experience, Wanderful has created an easy-to-use dynamic language function that allows readers to switch languages on-the-fly from anywhere in the story – a stunningly simple and powerful feature unlike anything found in other interactive storybooks or eBooks.
Wanderful Interactive Storybooks are available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Books and Education categories.
Originally introduced in 1992 by Brderbund Software, Living Books were the industry’s first highly interactive storybooks and embraced by educators, praised by parents and cherished by children. Twenty years later Mickey W. Mantle, the former Broderbund CTO who oversaw the technology development for the original interactive storybooks founded Wanderful and assembled key members of the original team, including Living Books creator Mark Schlichting, to re-invent the wildly popular interactive storybooks. The team has built an entirely new multi-platform engine to drive the story experience on the latest tablets, phones and computers, resulting in interactive storybook apps designed for today’s generation of digital kids.
