Curious George Enters the World of Digital Shared Reading for Young Learners

ireadwithTribal Nova has launched Curious George and the Firefighters by iRead With for the iPad. This title in the iRead With series marks the beloved monkey’s first foray into the world of digital shared reading, and is designed to foster language development in children ages 2 to 5.

The interactive app encourages a participatory reading experience for both parents and children. Context-related questions and hints pop up to encourage dialogue and closer reading, and words and images come alive with sound and animation. Children can also build and narrate their own stories with stamps, sounds, and their own voice recordings. Through active participation, children develop vocabulary, literacy skills, phonological awareness, narrative skills, and comprehension strategies.

The app is available for the iPad in English, French, and Spanish. To celebrate the launch, for a limited time, Curious George and the Firefighters by iRead With will be available at the App Store for a reduced price.
