How many of your children absolutely love to be on the computer? My daughter would sit for hours at a time if I allowed her too! We spend a lot of time with interactive games that teach her fundamentals along with her school curriculum! We also read to her on several occasions throughout the day! She wouldn't have it any other way! Reading is her forte and we encourage it as much as we can!
I was recently asked to take a look at a website called MobiStories. They are a site that offers digital downloads of children's books! Honestly, I had never thought of reading books online until now! Each book that they offer is narrated, illustrated, and has music. I was very impressed!
You can download the books in various forms. They offer them in the following formats: iPhone, iPod, Computers (Windows and MAC), DVD's, MP3's, Zune, iTunes, YouTube, Viddler, Revver, MySpace, and FaceBook! If your children have access to any of these components (which most do) please take advantage of this "free" offer! MobiStories has created this type of digital media to provide children with a healthy and productive activity. They (and I as well) believe that reading is an extremely vital skill that our children must possess and therefore offer a "new" way to introduce or enhance this skill!
These are just a few of the benefits of MobiStories:
- Another way to promote reading at an earlier age
- The opportunity to increase your child's literacy, vocabulary, and language skills
- They are great for any type of trip (plane, car, or bus)
- All-In-All it offers us, as parents, a good wholesome activity for our children
I downloaded the following books!
- The Squirrels Thanksgiving (in PC format which plays on my Windows Media Player)! Very cute...it's about being thankful!
- Little Is Big (in MP3 format)
- Tobias Turkey (in MP3 format)
- No Balloons Today (in MP3 format)
- The Firefly Star (in MP3 format)
- Salsa for Kittens & Puppies (which is a free book that they offer in addition to your order)
I was equally impressed with the length of each book! The visual book ran about 8 minutes and the MP3 files were all 15-20 minutes each!
Note: The MP3 format books can also be listened to through the Windows Media Player or equivalent program. I chose the MP3's to be able to load them onto my daughters MP3 player! We take trips to our hometown often and these will be a great addition!
