Interactive Reading App for Toddlers

Ladybird launch new app for older children and toddlers following the succes of Baby Touch:Peekaboo and Happy Babies.

Ladybird books have been helping children learn to read for decades with their beautifully illustrated titles, but now they have released a new interactive app for iPad and iPhones to help toddlers and older babies can develop their vocabulary skills.

The First Words: Toddler Touch and Say app is designed to help demonstrate to young learners the relationship between pictures and words and improve their early vocabulary.

Designed so that tots can use it themselves, the app features 48 familiar words from four themed sections: Animals, Toys, Home and Vehicles.

Striking illustrations accompany each word as children can touch them to see them move and

trigger sound effects. Touching the word allows children to hear it aloud in a soft British accent building a link between the word and the image. The engaging animations and sounds re-enforce meaning and good diction to help get children chattering.

The app is available for download from iTunes for £1.49.
