Halloween Treats Come in E-Books
Just as a personal computer metaphor sized into a study station for teaching children and giving them an avenue for learning new technical applications, tablet manufacturers have acknowledged that not only are their online e-Books a convenient way to promote on-the-go reading for the busy consumer, but can provide entertainment for children.
Children’s e-books are available with nothing more than an active library card. The Rosetta Project offers scanned historical children’s books that are offered in several different languages. Story online features videos of noted actors reading popular children’s books with their pictures. Now there is a collection of animated, interactive children’s books, including fun and spooky Halloween tales aimed just at children.
The Witch with no Name is a 3-D adventure available for tablets or smart phones. It has 25 interactive pages, seven games and a variety of silly tasks with the end goal of helping the witch find her name. Available at i-Tunes, Amazon, it is geared at ages four through ten.
For children aged two to four, Ocean House has released an app that allows the user to integrate their children’s photographs into the story, “Picture me Trick or Treat”. The extremely classic Halloween tale, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”, is also available as an e-book, with animation and sound effects. Children can create their own avatars and even bob for apples while playing alongside the lovable Peanuts’ characters.
Children’s e-books are perfect for the small fry, as they are more delightful and funny than they are scary. In fact, the illustrators go through great pains to not make them scary at all. It’s a great way to keep the little ones happy and maybe, not eat too much candy at one time.
