NYC-based ScrollMotion has been getting a lot of press, especially with the launch of the first Sesame Street Book app for the iPhone (hi Sara). I love these features in particular:
- Kids can hear Chris from Sesame Street read the story aloud.
- Kids’ parents can record their own voices reading the book, or kids can record themselves reading it.
- Chris defines new vocabulary from the book.
ScrollMotion has also teamed up with my publisher, Candlewick, to launch additional titles for iPhone, most notably the Maisy series by Lucy Cousins and books by Kate DiCamillo.
I’m hoping to see many more Candlewick titles show up on the IceBerg reader.
