Nickelodeon, the children’s television network, already has Noggin, a streaming service, and 40 apps for preschoolers. Now it has made a foray into e-books by launching a brand new reading app for children, presenting interactive stories based on Nick characters. It is an iOS app that can be downloaded free of charge at iTunes.
Nickelodeon’s new reading app is called Nick Jr. Books and provides access to an impressive selection of stories. Adults can read these stories aloud to their children or children can read the stories on their own. The app features an auto-read mode, in which the pages will turn automatically, and two read aloud modes, in which the words will be highlighted as soon as they are read. It also has an offline mode so that children can continue reading even if the Internet connection is lost.
Children can tap on the animations and interactive elements in which the stories abound. If the young readers make any progress, the app rewards them with badges and stars.
Although there are several similar apps in the market, this app stands in a class of its own because it is powered by the Nickelodeon brand. Children will love the app as they are already familiar with characters such as SpongeBob, Dora, Blue’s Clues, PAW Patrol, and Bubble Guppies, to mention just a few. Added advantages are a design that makes the app look like a game and cheerful music that is capable of encouraging children to read more.
The app is compatible with Apple Watch, where it can receive useful tips for parents on how the stories should be read.
When you download the app, you will receive three free books: Paw Patrol: Pup, Pup, and Away; Team Umizoomi - Carnival; and Blaze: Blaze of Glory. In addition, you can purchase 49 more books in-app, which will turn out to be cheaper than purchasing hardbound versions of the same books.
And if you are not into apps, you might like this "Nickelodeon 5-Minute Stories Collection" for Nickelodeon fans aged between three and seven. The stories feature Dora and Friends, PAW Patrol, Shimmer and Shine, and Blaze and the Monster Machines. Each story can be read in just five minutes. The book is available at Amazon.
