Alexis and Her eBook

BigIQkids.com is staying true to our philosophy that learning can be fun, interactive and inclusive. We are thrilled that Alexis appreciates these ancillary learning tools and we're looking forward to her next book and building a series of children's eBooks

Elementary school can be tough. Kids are faced with lots of homework, grade conscious parents and the pressures of making friends. In "UGH….You Again!" debut 10-year-old author Alexis Marcionette offers comical insight into one student's struggle when her WFE (Worst Friend Ever) suddenly moves back to town. Will "Alexis" once again be forced to be friends with the goody-goody Vanessa? And, will a revolutionary science project doom Alexis for the rest of her school days?

By leveraging Web 2.0, BigIQkids.com brings "UGH…You Again!" to life in full, online digital format complete with turning pages, engaging interactive illustrations and the wit and humor today's kids enjoy.

This is not an audio book but a proper, web based chapter book that allows children to read at their own pace by utilizing electronic bookmarks and a proprietary text-to-speech engine for "click to hear" individual word functionality.

For assessment purposes, built into this eBook is a reading comprehension test and vocabulary building exercise with the results emailed directly to parents and teachers. "BigIQkids.com is staying true to our philosophy that learning can be fun, interactive and inclusive. We are thrilled that Alexis appreciates these ancillary learning tools and we're looking forward to her next book and building a series of children's eBooks," says Jake Manning, VP of Business Development at BigIQkids.
