Who said subliminal messages are a bad thing?! This groundbreaking app will send a positive one to your little ones, encouraging them to be like shining stars in their world, while giving YOU the opportunity to be a part of the message. A win-win!
Not just any book app, but a first-of-its kind. Introducing to you personalization features not yet experienced elsewhere… "And So You Were Born" showcases unique capabilities such as the opportunity to record a reading of several writings on VIDEO – particularly useful for working parents and loved ones who are unable to read to the child whenever they’d like – to then be played on the child’s tap of the screen to their surprise! Taking personalization to another level, the book app offers the option to INPUT PERSONAL DETAILS into the text, giving little ones the joy of spotting their name and personal details as they read along.
Heartwarming text and colorful, whimsical illustrations and animations hold the reader’s interest as they learn of the great love that exists for them and about the purpose of spreading that love in return - and to all others as we unite in our diversities - lessons presented with intercultural images and a relevant short quote from major faith traditions. All the while, and without even realizing it, the reader’s goodness will be encouraged and cheered!
Loads of opportunity for personalization, including:
• VIDEO RECORD readings of 7 quotes for the child to view on a tap of the screen!*
• Provide READER'S DETAILS, including name and birthday, and names of loved ones, for insertion in the text.
• EMBED the reader’s drawing on a screen of the book.
Interactive features for extended involvement with the app:
• ACCELEROMETER offers the reader opportunity to cause stars to fall and move with tilting of the device.
• Innovative EFFECTS like wiping fog off the screen (tap the cloud icon!), causing rain to fall at different levels of intensity against the screen, and blowing into the mic to make objects move.
• Delightful and charming images and ANIMATIONS to entertain and amuse your child for plenty of time, including: touch, drag or swipe capability to activate animations and sounds like giggling, twinkling, swaying, bursting and more!
• Entertaining sound effects.
• Adoring and SYMBOLIC illustrations inspired by principles of love, devotion and unity, allowing for meaningful discussions with your child during reading time.
• Reader may read alone, or choose to read with pre-recorded NARRATION.
• ACTIVITIES AND GAMES, including memory matching, puzzles and coloring.
(*Hint: Tap the stars outside the bedroom window! For devices without video capability, voice will be recorded in its place.)

What's New in Version 1.1
My grandson absolutely loved this book and all its activities: the match game, the painting and the puzzle components. The message is heart-warming and gentle, the music and illustrations are lovely. Highly recommended for children of all backgrounds.
Perfect app for kids at all ages
