Novel Effect brings popular kid’s books to life by playing sound effects, music & character’s voices as you read out loud.

Novel Effect works when you read aloud from the corresponding book using voice recognition.

All of Novel Effect's audio soundscapes are available for free if you already own or have access to the print book. Soundscapes can also run in the background with iBooks purchases or free previews, or eBooks purchased through your favorite eReader.

Simply select the physical or ebook and read out loud.

It’s easy! With traditional print books:
1. Grab a book
2. Select that book in the app and tap 'Read Book'
3. Set your device aside (runs with screen turned off)
4. Read aloud to automatically trigger theme music & sound effects

With eBooks:
1. Select the book in the app
2. Select 'Read Book'
3. Select 'Open in iBooks'*
4. Read aloud to automatically trigger theme music & sound effects
*Want to use a different eReader? After selecting 'Read Book' you can exit Novel Effect (it runs in the background) & open the same book in your favorite eReader

So much fun!

Updated review... this latest version is way better than the old one, and I loved it before. My two year old can even get the music to play when she says the titles of her favorite books. I can’t wait for her to start reading on her own, Using this app keeps her interested in the stories, even the ones that are well above her reading level. Keep up the good work!

This is such a phenomenal idea! My kid loves it, we're having a blast reading together, and are excited to do it more. The music is all really well done too, that dragon in Harold and the purple crayon really does feel terribly frightening. I'm so glad to see my daughter excited for bedtime stories each night. Thanks for this great app!

One of those magical apps

This is one of those apps that brings a little magic into your life. I was introduced to it by a school librarian when I was visiting my son in kindergarten. She let me read a book to the class using Novel Effect and the kids (and I) loved it.

My son now really likes to try to read the books himself in order to get he sound effects going, and hopes that means re books continue being added to the library.

Looking forward to seeing what comes to the app.
