Hundreds of children’s picture books in the palm of your hand

December 23, 2017 Apps No Comments Email Email

A brand new one-stop platform for reading and learning has launched in Australia. Aimed at young families, Ebookadabra is a subscription based e-reading app for kids learning to read that is now available globally.

Hot on the heels of new research that shows how supported and structured screen time can help children learn[1], Ebookadabra will help three to seven year olds discover a whole new world of carefully curated children’s books.

 From dinosaurs to wizards, there are over 1,000 picture books for parents and kids to discover together. There’s even a handy bedtime option to choose stories to help children wind down ready for sleep.

 To inspire more reading, children are rewarded with collectable stickers and educational games when they finish a story, encouraging them to dive back into the Ebookadabra library to find another book.

 For younger children, ‘read-along’ audio books will help to aid their sound recognition. While older kids can post book reviews for others to read once they’ve finished a book, and parents and kids can even record their own audio book version.

 Parents can monitor which books their children have downloaded and how many pages they’ve read by checking the Parent Dashboard. To keep motivation going parents can send messages within the family circle, audio recordings and book recommendations all via the app.

 “Ebookadabra is designed to be a fun and rewarding reading experience for kids which parents can feel good about,” says co-founder Tom Grayson. “High-quality digital experiences like Ebookadabra will increase reading and book discovery. We don’t say it’s the only way that kids can enjoy stories but we do think it’s a crucial new digital ingredient in getting kids to read.”

 Available on Apple and Android devices, the Ebookadabra app has been developed with professional educators to help aid reading proficiency. All the content is age appropriate for kids under seven and is designed to support literacy through learning.

 Leading book publishers already featured within the app include Harper Collins, Bloomsbury, Parragon, Oxford University Press and Little Tiger Press. Having access to so many books at the touch of a button is set to make reading more accessible to many children.

 The Ebookadabra library is constantly growing, and new content such as stickers, educational games, themes and avatars are regularly added to keep Ebookadabra a fresh and engaging world of reading.

 Subscription is available for just $4.49 (on iOS) a month and will allow simultaneous access to Ebookadabra for parents and up to four children on an unlimited number of devices.
