Scholastic Media’s Storybook Apps Bring Lots of Valentine’s Day Fun!‏

Enjoy Valentine’s Day with your little ones through the help of Scholastic Media’s new storybook apps for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch!

Scholastic’s Go, Clifford, Go! storybook app -- based on the phenomenally popular book series Clifford the Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell -- is aimed at ages 2-5 years, and combines Clifford with a topic most kids love: vehicles and motion. Young readers play along with Clifford as he encounters trucks, trains, planes, and motorcycles that go whizzing by. Here’s a preview of this app:

Based on the Scholastic book by Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak and illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church, reading the “Touch & Tilt” storybook app I Love You Through and Through is the perfect parent-and-child Valentine’s Day activity. Whether read aloud by mother or father, or with the app’s comforting adult voice, I Love You Through and Through details for children 2 and up the many things one person can love about another. Here’s a preview of this book. Isn’t it adorable?

And for Clifford fans who don’t have an iPad, they can still have BIG Valentine’s Day fun with Clifford’s BE BIG with Words game for the iPhone. Players experiment with letters and letter sounds as they learn to create and spell three-letter words and hear how they sound with pronunciation instruction. Featuring more than 100 age-appropriate words and characters from the hit Clifford TV show, Clifford’s BE BIG with Words game will entertain and educate young readers for hours.

These and other apps are available through Scholastic’s apps page at Happy Valentine’s Day!
