BOSTON, Mass. (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Little readers can now find their favorite original stories right on their smartphone or tablet with today’s launch of Funbrain Jr. eBooks, available via the Epic! and Me Books mobile apps. With the launch of these eBooks from the free website for the youngest learners, ages 2-6, kids and their parents can enjoy quirky characters, such as Brainy Blueberry, Captain Buckleswash, Berry Pinkwad, Daisy Nuzzlehead, Gonk and Wilma Wigsticker, on the go.
Written specifically to engage preschoolers and kindergartners with their colorful illustrations, these stories feature tales, such as the one told in “Brainy Blueberry and the Backpack Balloon.” In this original story for Funbrain Jr., Brainy Blueberry's favorite invention, his backpack balloon, floats away and he calls upon his friends for help. Captain Buckleswash, Wilma Wigsticker and the zany cast of characters jump into action, until finally the backpack is recovered. Or in “Gonk Wrecks Everything,” Gonk, a monster, is always getting into trouble because he destroys everything in his path. But when his friends finally get fed up, he gets creative and the result is amazing.
