Based on the hit PBS KIDS TV series, this animated story is part of iRead With, a new read-aloud program created to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.
iRead With animated stories invite parents to read to their child and are designed to make children talk and participate in the shared reading activity.
Parents follow a prompting system that encourages them to start a conversation with the child, by asking questions about the story and the world around us. Children become actively involved in the narrative and get stimulated in a multi-sensory level.
“Finally an activity that brings us together on the iPad!” - Mom of a 4-year old
iRead With is based on the shared reading method developed in conjunction with McGill University Child Phonology Lab.
“Shared-reading is an ideal context for learning especially when parent and child talk together about the story. We see that parents and children take their time with iRead With books – enjoying the animations and engaging in rich conversations that support language and literacy learning.” – Susan Rvachew, Ph.D., S -LP, McGill University.
