Continuing with our Page Turning Tuesdays, this week we have some classics, a joke book, a cookbook, and more. Remember, you don't need an iPad to read any of them! Kindle books can be read on any computer, smart phone, iPad, or (of course) Kindle reader.
These sales are not guaranteed, and we don't know when the prices will change. So click and download these free books as soon as you read this! There are books for both kids and adults.
Bottom Line: Ready to Read focuses on helping children form letter shapes and identify letter sounds to build early reading skills. Through an easy-to-use layout, children can choose to practice writing letters and beginner words or practice identifying letter sounds. This would be a good app for a child learning what sounds the different letters make and begining to build words based on letter sounds.
Bottom Line: Tribal Nova uses iOS technology to modernize one of Margaret and H.A. Rey's classic Curious George tales with reading levels, personalization and play theater based on the dialogic reading method for kids five and under. Although this is a fun activity for kids and their caregivers, adults must take an active role in this app for children to get the full benefits.
Cake, rake, lake and don't forget shake! Who is ready for some rhyming fun? Nimble Minds has released a brand new app full of word families. Open up Bud's Rhyming Words, set up an account, and join the adventure with three different rhyming games. For a limited time only, this app is available at a discounted price, so don't miss out!
Drop your beach towels and flip-flops, you summer-loving deal finders, because we have a great giveaway for you! The lovable developer Auryn, Inc., has given us five, one-month subscriptions for Stories Alive. Imagine your kids with access to 170 interactive books the next time they utter the dreaded "I'm bored!" as you're trying to catnap on the sofa — or trying to go to the bathroom in peace. (Hey, maybe you can go to the bathroom in peace, but it's still a pipe dream for me and I seem to be off-topic.) The important thing is that it's summer and a perfect time to increase a child's love of reading in a room that's not the bathroom. (How many more weeks of summer are there?) Read on to find out about Stories Alive and how to win. I promise not to talk about bathrooms anymore.
