“This app could revolutionize how iOS apps read to children..." - The iMum
“(My Kids) both loved to make up their own little “George shows” in the theater section and having them create together only made it more fun for them (and for me)." - iPad Kids
“When (kids) tap on the word, they will hear themselves read the words aloud. What a fun way to encourage kids to learn!” - iGame Mom
“With beautiful hand-drawn illustrations, funny animations and professional narration, it is an engaging storybook app with great educational value." - Top Kids Apps
Based on Margret Rey’s children’s book and the hit PBS KIDS TV series, this animated story featuring Curious George is part of iRead With, a new read-aloud program created to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.
iRead With animated stories encourage a participative reading experience engaging both child and parent. This new shared-reading method was created in conjunction with University of McGill University Child Phonology Lab, where extensive research shows that the most effective read-alouds are those where children are actively involved.

Narrative sequences are punctuated by prompts and conversation starters, inviting parent and child to talk about the story and the world around us.
