Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) March 23, 2011
Hinkler, one of the world’s leading publisher of children’s books, announces the launch of free Lite versions of its Magic Fairy Tale Story Books Apps for iPad. Four classic fairy tale stories are available now to download for free from the App Store, with animated illustrations and theatrical narration plus a range of interactive play features. All stories include both English and Spanish text and narration.
Everyone remembers the joy of discovering faraway lands and engaging characters through the pages of classic fairy tale story books as a child. Now parents can introduce their children to the same enchanting tales through the magic of the iPad with Hinkler’s Magic Fairy Tale Story Books Apps for iPad.
Popular titles available in this innovative format include Sleeping Beauty, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Ugly Duckling and The Pied Piper of Hamelin.
Each App features gorgeous illustrations and engaging narration plus exciting interactive features. Parents will love the traditional read-along elements and the educational benefits such as tapping words to repeat and double-tapping words to spell them out.
The Apps will enhance the shared reading experience and develop children’s reading and vocabulary skills. There’s even a ‘record-your-own-voice’ feature: parents (and grandparents!) can read the story and the recording can be played back in the App for everyone to enjoy any time.
‘Lite’ versions of each App are available to download for free from the App store. The reader can upgrade to the full version of each story for only US$2.99.
Hinkler’s CEO and Publisher Stephen Ungar comments: “Hinkler has a long history of combining fabulous children’s products with innovative formats, so the move into digital publishing is a natural fit for us. Hinkler’s best-selling fairy tales titles have been loved by children around the world for years. These fantastic Apps continue our promise to deliver quality products and value prices. Your book, your way. We are fortunate to partner with Kiwa Media to adapt the classic stories to their fantastic QBook format so that children everywhere can enjoy these much-loved fairy tales in a new way.”
