Piccolo picture books can be used in various ways. Parents can read to their children in the traditional manner. Toddlers and preschoolers can also use the read-aloud function themselves, for instance in the car. Very simple and intuitive use, suitable for kids 2-years and up. Using the ‘learn-to-read’ function the highlighted text helps beginning readers make associations between the words they hear and see.
Piccolo apps are a sensible and entertaining alternative to movies and games. At home or on-the-go – always a picture book on hand. The story is told using the pictures and text from the book, adding sounds and interactive elements.

About The Competition
Pim’s parents want him to dump his pet goldfish Harry into a canal because they are going on summer holiday. A heartbroken Pim leaves for their house on sea where he is supposed to take part in a competition. ‘Competition’ Harry overhears: ‘Count me in!’ Harry is determined to win the competition and begins a long swimming race. On the way, he meets unusual animals and experiences a lot more than in his goldfish bowl at home! At the end of his journey, Harry is the fastest by far…but was this only a swim competition?
