My Living Stories app with a $25 iTunes card Giveaway **Closed**

The My Living Stories apps combine beautiful artwork, narration and interactive features in an easy to use platform that is perfect for preschoolers to read along all on their own, without any help. My Living Stories are a great solution for entertaining on-the-go or as an aid for teaching children to read at home. The apps allow for your child to read along with English or French narration or read the stories themselves. Interactive sounds and animation bring stories to life. Another great feature is the ability to record your own voice to go along with the story (this feature requires an iPhone or iPod Touch with microphone capabilities). My Living Story classic stories include Princess & the Pea, King Midas, The Tortoise & the Hare, Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.


We got an iTouch a few months ago and love it! Mostly my husband uses it but I love having it when we travel and are out and about and the kids get bored. I love that I can have some apps on their for the kids to occupy them when they get antsy and bored. I just used it yesterday while at the river watching Daddy fish and to keep Brandon from going crazy!



We tried out the Princess & the Pea, The Tortoise & the Hare, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears! Brandon figured it out in no time at all. I had to show him how to push the button to turn it to the next page and he couldn't get enough of it! He was running with the Hare, laughing and imitating everything they were doing. He loved it. I can't wait to hook up a microphone and recode myself saying the story.



These books are great for learning how to read, occupying toddlers, and even older children. For only $1.99 you really can't go wrong! The imagery is so nice and isn't all wild and crazy, its a great way to relive the old classics!


We have a $25 iTunes card for one lucky winner! You can enter on as many blogs as you want, just do a google search to find them, but you can only win once. Good luck!
