Wanderful launched a new collection of engaging and multilingual interactive storybook apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch based on classic titles originally published as Living Books by Brøderbund Software. These interactive storybook apps deliver imaginative and fully interactive experiences for young and emerging readers through high-quality animated content loved by children, parents, and teachers. The three new apps–Mercer Mayer’s “Little Monster at School,” Marc Brown’s “Arthur’s Teacher Trouble” and Aesop’s “The Tortoise and the Hare”–are now available on the App Store for $4.99.
A premium upgrade is available for all three apps for $2.99 via In-App Purchase, which includes a 40-80 page Classroom Activities guide as well as regular feature updates. French can be added for a $1.99 In-App Purchase and is included in the “Little Monster at School” and “Arthur’s Teacher Trouble” apps premium upgrades.
Wanderful apps are highly intuitive and encourage children to explore each story and all its content. Every app features custom music, extended animation, and hundreds of interactive hot spots and antics, providing a deeper experience and more interactivity on one page than other story apps offer in total. While fully interactive at the page level, each app also includes the classic “Read to Me” mode that lets young readers watch and listen to the story play automatically.
Wanderful has created an easy-to-use dynamic language function that allows readers to switch languages on-the-fly from anywhere in the story. Launching in English, Spanish, and French, future versions of the products will be available in Japanese, German, Italian, U.K. English, and Brazilian Portuguese.
