Studies show one of the most important things that can be done in preparing children for success in school and reading is to read aloud to them: reading aloud helps build listening skills, vocabulary, memory, and language skills and helps children learn information about the world around them.
KooBits interactive Ebook App has read-aloud, voice-recording and user-input features, as well as interactive puzzle games to engage the digital kids of today.
Children can use this App to create ebooks as part of a writing activity, for themselves or others.
