New iBook for children calms fears about the Mayan apocalypse

Calendars measure time, they do not predict the future.

According to the urban legend, the world will end when the Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012. This thought can bring fear to young minds. The best way to address this is by using clear, simple terms. “Tell children that calendars measure time, they do not predict the future,” says K. T. Fledge, author of the new iBook, “Is It True About December 21, 2012?”

In her iBook, K. T. Fledge approaches the myth with clarity, using easy-to-read terms to describe the Mayan culture. The book compares the four Mayan calendars to our single calendar system. Though the measurements are different, the concepts behind the Mayan calendar and our calendar are the same. Just as the world doesn’t end when our calendar ends every year on December 31, it won’t end when the Mayan calendar ends, either.

Bold graphic design and large, colorful photos of Mayan architecture and art adorn the pages. The text is simple and clear, ideal for early readers. The story emerges in a few lines per page in traditional picture book format. The reading level is appropriate for first and second grade.

“Is It True About December 21, 2012?” By K. T. Fledge is an iBook for iPad available at the Apple iTunes iBookstore in four countries: United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia. The cost is US$1.99 (equivalent prices in other countries).
