Parents will be pleasantly surprised to discover that our Nook tablets have a new set of interactive ebooks and games for very young children. Bean’s Baby is an interactive ebook with gentle animations, quiet music and a simple story. The main characters are a baby and his friendly cat who play together and enjoy each other company. There is a read-to-me feature that shows the text and highlights the spoken word. The stories have a replay button that allows one to listen over and over again. You can continue to enjoy the characters by exploring the companion apps Not Without Bear, Bean’s Night and Bean’s Games.
Bean’s Baby was on the Children’s Television Networks Recommended Reading List for Zero to Three. Bean’s Games was an ALA Notable Book, and all three were Book-of-the-Month-Club featured selections.
These applications are recommended for ages 0-4.
