GIVE US YOUR PAW AND WE’LL GIVE YOU A TREAT!
Get ready to steer the action, reveal surprises, play games, and collect stickers along the way in this hilarious book app—the first in the Millie Was HereTM series.
YOU'LL HOWL WITH LAUGHTER
Meet Millie, the adorable but mischievous mutt who turns real life into a real adventure. Tap and swipe each page to discover why Millie is such a special dog. Her silly "super powers," her outrageous "special diet," and her wacky “disguises" are all revealed in this full-featured mini book.
THE TALL "TAILS" OF A SHORT DOG
The Millie books combine real-life photographs with fantastical art and story elements to create far-fetched, humorous “fairytales” for kids. They’re a lighthearted, modern twist on a classic format, and everyone’s in on the joke.
TEACHING OLD SKILLS USING NEW TRICKS
Our goal is to use a technology to which kids are naturally drawn to foster a love of reading, promote imaginative and inferential thinking, and help kids develop cognitive, creative, language, and motor skills. Education and language specialists have found that even the most reluctant readers are enticed to read Millie’s books.
THIS PUPPY WAS BORN DIGITAL
The Millie Was HereTM series was created from the ground up as an interactive reading experience for iOS devices. It wasn't adapted from a book, film, or television show—so its interactivity and mixed-media design are built right into the story, not added on later. The result is interactivity that feels intuitive, natural, and fully integrated into the narrative.
• Read-along text (highlights words as they are read)
• Interactivity on every page, including digital pop-ups, mini games, and more
• Packed with exciting video clips and animation
• Virtual stickers hidden on every page, and a sticker book for your collection
• Innovative “Bedtime Mode” creates a calmer experience for nighttime reading
• Two reading modes allow users to choose between having the book read to them, or reading it themselves.
• Easily switch between all 10 languages from the home screen
• Original music and fun sound effects
• Professional dramatic narration
• Beautiful, original artwork and photography
• A cute dog on every page
-- New non-holiday content for Card Maker
-- Minor bug fixes and performance optimizations
Ratings and Reviews
FUNNY, CLEVER, CREATIVE!
I am a language arts teacher, and I would definitely recommend this clever, adorable book! My colleagues and I have introduced Millie to a wide range of ages, and we've discovered that pre-readers love the story, beginning readers prefer it over other books as a reading tool, and older kids love it as a lesson in irony, unreliable narrator, etc. Looking forward to the next app!
This is such an amazing book, especially considering that it's free. It's an 8 page interactive e-book, with a darling storyline about a very special dog named Millie. It has the option to have the story read to you or you can read it on your own. It also has a "bedtime mode" which means that it dims the screen and lowers the sound. Although it's only 8 pages long, each page has an interactive feature, which are all very cute and engaging. My 10 year old and 8 year old boys like finding the hidden "stickers" and my 1.5 year old daughter loves the music and Millie herself. The music, sound effects, and narrator's voice are all top-notch. Overall, you won't be disappointed with this book! I would give it 10 stars if I could!!
I'm a Speech Therapist who works with a variety of children with specials needs and other speech problems. My students and I absolutely loved this cute interactive book. Even some of my slightly older students loved the book as well. They all enjoyed the games and the pop-up interactivity and were easily able to manage the controls even with diminished fine-motor control. The book was great for encouraging language development and it really held their interest. My students would ask me if we could read "Meet Millie" on my IPad every time I saw them. I plan to add the other Millie books to my collection soon. Elizabeth Lavoie (Speech/Language Pathologist)
