London, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 23 November 2012

Mindshapes today announced the release of six free interactive Livebook™ apps for iPhone and iPad, based on the format used within their popular children’s app Magic Town. All six titles are available for free for a limited time over the Thanksgiving weekend, as a celebration of Magic Town reaching one million Livebooks read.

The six free titles are popular classic The Tale of Little Red Riding Hood; Aesop’s Fable The Tortoise & the Hare; American folk tale Brer Rabbit Earns a Dollar a Minute; Rumplestiltskin from the Brothers Grimm; Sinbad the Sailor from the Arabian Nights, and Hans Christian Andersen’s The Leaping Match.

Each Livebook™ app contains a beautifully illustrated, lovingly animated and professionally narrated version of a popular story. There are multiple story modes in each app, allowing children to watch, read, play and learn on their own or with a parent.

“We’re enormously proud that we’ve provided our first million stories to children around the world” said Chris Michaels, CMO at Mindshapes. “We want to thank all our users for their support, and since it’s Thanksgiving, what better way to do that that by giving them some of our most popular stories for free?”

The free Livebook apps can be viewed and downloaded here:
