The World Cup in Brazil has enthralled the world over the last month. It’s a great time to release our first multi-language Demibooks Storytime book in Brazilian Portuguese, French
and English. We are excited to introduce this month’s Storytime Book: Moon and Sun by Márcio Monteiro. In this beautifully illustrated interactive children’s book app, the moon and sun are alone in the sky until one day their paths cross and they become the best of friends. This book app has already gotten outstanding reviews. “The interactivity on all 16 pages makes this story a lovely addition to any young child’s iPad. It is particularly handy for when you are in need of quiet time. Easy for your child to listen and play independently, or switch to the ‘I wanna to read’ mode for older children. This mode is also good for snuggle time with someone to laugh and giggle so gently with.” –The Appy Ladies Márcio is a 37 year old Brazilian who lives in Recife. He graduated in design and is a children’s book author and illustrator. He says, “I’ve got a little time in this universe and now I’m doing something that the heart always wanted. Taking the stories that were stored in the drawer, illustrate them and finally show to the people; let a little light into the world.” When asked about his inspiration for Moon and Sun he replied, “Life and its subtleties, the little and important things that often go unnoticed… feelings.” “The biggest problem for the creation of my book-app was programming, which was eliminated with Demibooks Composer, it has a simple and intuitive interface that eliminates thousands of lines of code. Without it, I’d probably still be on the road.” With this love for book making, Márcio will continue to work with children’s books, currently working on two new ones. And we look forward to his new creations.
