A review and a giveaway for you :)

Hello readers, I have an awesome review and a giveaway for you.

PicPocket Books, my daughter has so much fun with them, it's amazing!

Waiting in line, paying for groceries has never been so easy for me, as well as keeping her distracted in the car,

and the best of all is that she is learning at the same time :) how cool is that! I'm talking a storytime on your iPhone or your iPod Touch.

PicPocket Books offers picture books for ages 2 to 8

as downloadable iPhone/oPod Touch apps.

I honestly have to highly recommend them

it was a new and unique experience for Jessica

she has asked me to listen to the books over and over again.

The picture books are age-appropiate together with the picture being high quality, sharp and clear image with a professional narration

but the part that I like the most is that it has an interactive visual text,

which helps them learn to read,

besides the benefit of not having to carry books everywhere :)

It has the same educational value as reading print books

it increases your child vocabulary

and improves their focus and concentration.

Now my daughter doesn't have to wait until only mommy can read her a book or wait until bedtime, now she can have a story read to her anytime :)

All you have to do is download a PicPocket Book app only once

just like you would download a song from iTunes on your iPod

and play it as many times as you like.

And now for the giveaway PicPocket Books is happy to offer one of my readers a free download of any of the PicPocket book title of your choice.

How sweet is that!

All you have to do is comment to this post letting me know

which PicPocket Book you would choose if you win :)

that's it!

Good Luck!

Giveaway ends January 31 st.

  2. Boy - I wish they had a better way to navigate through their books and sorted them by ages! My Name is Andrew looked interesting to me as well as Big Stuff series.

  3. I like Sleeping Beauty.

  4. I love the book Round as a Mooncake!

    Love your abc preschool ideas. I recently discovered your sight and have used it for inspiration.

  5. Wow! I have been looking for an app just like this :) I love that they highlight the words so that children can follow along. I also love that parents will have the ability to record their voices. I have explored a lot of "read aloud" apps and most of them miss the mark. Thanks for sharing this great resource...

  6. Oooops! I forget to mention that I love that they offer non-fiction titles as well. My girls would love the Sea Creatures book :)

  7. I hope they have a version for droid. I would love to have this on my phone when we are out and about.

  8. I would love any one of the picpocket books, as I just learned about them on this blog. Thank you for your generous "give away" as my 8 yr.old granddaughter would love to be able to listen to a story on her new Ipod she just got at Christmas time. These are wonderful, thank you so much.

  9. Hi,
    I love "Then It Rained"!! What an awesome storyline--no matter what age!! And, the idea of your "PicPocket Books" is amazing!! I have the Droid cell also and would love to get the app for it! Thanks so much!!

  10. Clemencia--
    I am loving your site---sorry I haven't taken the time before to snoop around---you have an amazing site---I will come back more often---thanks for all the sharing you do with everyone!

  11. This would be a wonderful gift for my grandsons. Mom has a iphone and they use it for games, but not for things that really stimulate their minds. Having these books would really help me get Mom to focus more on using the children's time toward education--not just distractions. Great idea! Go!

  12. How exciting to have found this. I would also download Round is a Mooncake. our school is getting i-pod touches so what awesome timing to have found this!! THanks

  13. Wow - so much in such a little gadget. I would love to download Round is a mooncake please

  14. Great site! ! ! so much information. Will definitely come back. Thanks for all your shares
