An educational way of Learning for military children made fun!

Being a military wife, and constantly on the go all the time I just want to say how much I appreciate educational apps they are number one on my list. It is very important in this day and technology age to keep our kids up to date and learning as much as they can. Reading is very important to me, and I am thrilled that we aren’t loosing that ability in the tech enhanced world we live in. On Friday was the last day before Spring Break and right after school I picked them up to START OUR SPRING BREAK! We also used these apps on our way to the 2011 White House Easter Egg roll. I was given the chance to review PicPocket Book Apps, and my favorite one was Breezy Bunnies. This app gets a thumbs up from me, it is affordable!!


Now kids can enjoy their favorite books from your iPhone! Forget the playstations, game consoles and DVDs, our mobile picture books will entertain and educate your child in the car, plane, train and more.
With PicPocketBooks, children can: 

look ~at the same pretty pictures featured in the printed book! They reproduce both the words and the images on your phone.  

listen~to one of our narrators! And coming soon, friends and family can read and record the story in their own voices!  

Learn~to read! Words will highlight as the text is read and replay when touched for on-the-go education. Download at the Apple App Store Only $0.99 - $3.99 per Book 

The idea for PicPocket Books came from Founder and CEO Lynette Mattke in early 2009, when there were not many kids book apps on iTunes. The business was started on a shoestring budget by a group of partners with software programming experience. In the summer of 2010 PicPocket Books was awarded a grant from Kimberly-Clark’s Huggies ® MomInspired Program for our innovative ideas that help make life easier for moms.




This is straight from the founder Lynette: 

"Our apps have been downloaded tens of thousands of times, and we anticipate introducing approximately 80 new apps this year. We are consciously NOT creating video games, but hope that PicPocket Books can offer a gentle alternative to games for parents who want to offer their children mobile digital books."
