Over the past few days. I’ve been checking out the new eBook, Giant Trouble by SkyReader Media. I’m really impressed. It’s obvious by the features included that a lot of thought went into this e-book.
An interactive graphic novel for tweens, Giant Trouble is a thrilling tale about Finn, the biggest giant in Ireland and his wife Oona, who saves Finn from Cucullin, the biggest and strongest giant in Scotland with some very clever tricks. Teaching children about how to deal with social issues they may face when going back to school, such as bullies, this eBook is sure to engage timid readers while encouraging self-confidence.
The app itself is great, with three different reading options including AutoRead mode, Read To Me mode, Read Myself mode. It’s interactive too. Utilizing the iPad’s touch screen, you can touch the environment and characters and bring the e-Book to life! I love the sound effects too, they add so much to the story!
Another really great feature of Giant Trouble is the Parent’s section which includes “Notes for Literacy Learning” that include suggestions on how to engage your children in the book and help them think about the story. There are even vocabulary suggestions. Love that!
Whether your child loves to read or struggles with literacy, both of you will enjoy this fun and interactive story!
Giant Trouble is normally $4.99 in the iTunes store, but for a limited time you can purchase it for $2.99. This price won’t last long, so be sure to check it out.
