Story time is an essential and recommended part of family life, and now with the new Story Bug App by Cricket Media, kids and grownups can read a book or magazine together, even when they're apart. This is perfect for traveling or deployed parents or those with long distance relatives. The app combines video chat with an interactive reader and is now available for iPad and iPhones.
Story Bug users can choose from a customizable library of digital books geared towards concepts for children aged 0-6. Titles at launch include "Favorite Mother Goose Rhymes," a collection of favorite children's rhymes such as Little Miss Muffet, Jack and Jill, Old Kind Cole, Pop Goes the Weasel and more; "The One with the Freckle," a story about a little boy who learns to have fun without his twin brother on his first day of kindergarten; and "Big Sister's Goodnight," a story about a big sister who helps her baby sister get ready for bed.
"We are thrilled to introduce the new Story Bug app for iOS," said Katya Andresen, CEO, Cricket Media. "Family members and friends have long turned to Cricket Media and our award winning library to entertain, enlighten and inspire children. Now with Story Bug, kids and their loved ones have a wonderful way to connect and come together to share the experience of reading our content whether they are in different rooms, different towns or different countries."
The Story Bug App is available for free from the App Store on the iPhone or iPad or at http://bit.ly/1whBUU3.
