“An eBook that makes children talk!”
• Already reached #1 in Books in the US, Canada and France.
Based on the hit TV series, this animated story 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 are designed to make children talk and participate in the shared reading activity.
iRead With is based on the dialogic reading method developed in conjunction with University of McGill's Child Phonology Lab.
Parents follow a prompting system that encourages them to start a conversation with the child, by asking questions about the story. Children become actively involved in the narrative and get stimulated in a multi-sensory level.
“Finally an activity that brings us together on the iPad!” - Mom of a 4-year old

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

Doesn't read to the child
This sounds like a great app and is targeted for those under 5, but it doesn't read to the kid and under 5 can't read... and this app doesn't narrate the story! The most regretful purchase on the iTunes App Store I've made. Save your money and don't bother with this one unless your child under 5 can read full sentences. :-/
