Spring is in the air at Demibooks Storytime with several new releases and the re-introduction of old favorites. My Felt World by Digital Toybox helps kids explore farm, ocean, safari and artic worlds with all things felt. Play the delightful animations, arrange your own world and take a picture to share! In The Crumpton Storm by Uncle Lucy Publishing, young Lucy Crump knows that amazing things await the end of rainy day at her seaside town. City Nights by Tidepool Publishing introduces us to the sights and sounds of a bustling city as it goes to sleep. The review site Cool Mom Picks says “Don’t expect bells and whistles, or fireworks and explosions. This app is gentle and soothing. And, though I never thought I’d say this about an app, it was just like reading a real book. A wonderfully written, beautifully illustrated, lovingly created real book.” We have a new Storytime Book, create an account to get it free! The Monster Fish educates children about the great outdoors of North America via a 3-dimensional animated environment and an interactive game.
Finally, some great news for fans of Little Bahalia Publishing. Publisher Stacey Williams-Ng worked with us from the early days of Demibooks and we were sad to hear she was shutting down earlier this year. We wanted to keep the great apps created by Little Bahalia in Storytime, and worked with the authors to be able to now re-release a number of titles under the Demibooks brand.
The first four released today: the critically acclaimed series from Julie Hedlund, A Troop is a Group of Monkeys and A Shiver of Sharks; Teeny Tiny Trucks by Tim McCanna/Keith Frawley; and The Box by Sue Moring/Josh Zelasko. Rebecca and Caldecott award winner Ed Emberley’s Itsy Bitsy Spider will be released soon.
We hope you and your young readers enjoy the apps!
