Get your child hooked on reading with the new DK Readers app
Perfect for each stage of your child’s development, the new DK Readers app makes learning to read fun and exciting. You can browse through a whole library of fantastic DK Readers on every topic from farm animals to fishy tales and emperor penguins to Ewoks, picking eBooks at exactly the right level for your child. Each eBook has a read-aloud audio feature, paced so that your child can read along with the text according to their level of reading confidence. As they develop you can adjust the reading age to suit their new skills and they can even choose their very own avatar from a range of cool images for their growing bookshelf.
But don’t be concerned about your child making any purchases without you, you’ll have a secure parental pin so you can look after what they choose for their beautiful DK bookshelf.
The Dorling Kindersley Limited ("DK") DK Readers app uses a third-party app service provider ("Google Analytics") in order to create accurate, real-time user data reports so that DK can continue to improve the app user experience. The service collects and submits anonymous aggregated data about which app features are being used most frequently as well as your mobile device UDID (unique phone Identifiers) and/or IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identities), which are also anonymised via a secure hashing protocol, to Adobe servers. This information will be used to continually improve the features and functionality that DK releases in its subsequent versions of its mobile apps.

Ratings and Reviews
I want to say I love DK readers books, and the app seems to be great, but please add a feature allowing purchased books to be accessible between multiple mobile devices within a family. I would even pay for this feature as long as the fee is less than having to re-buy books to add them to other devices. We have a family iPad, one son has his own iPad, and two iPhones in the family. I would love to add DK books to all of these devices so that we can read anytime, anywhere.
Good app but missing a few features
The DK Reader app is a solid app which encourages children to read a variety of different types of material. There is a "read to me" option which is nice for beginning readers. But it is still just another digitized reading app. One of the key skills students need today is to be able to read different types of materials AND and be able to answer key questions about his the material they read by selecting the "evidence" for the answer. This reading app does not offer students a mode chance to practice this key skill.
Amazing and Amusing
This app is very interesting and exciting! I am a college student searching for new ways to encourage and stimulate cultures and communities to seek out in-depth learning opportunities. The app uses very simple and unique technologies to train the very complex and unique, young brain. Check it out, I dare you!
