MobiStories Virtual Mobile Books, Another Way for Your Child Enjoy Reading!

Recently I purchased an iPhone and discovered that my daughter is fascinated by my phone. She enjoys playing kid-friendly games my iPhone which led me to a search for age appropriate books in the form of an iPhone app.

I found a wonderful website called MobiStories, which are virtual mobile books that can be read on iPhones and computers. The book choices are listed on the website and are broken down into age categories. The books can be downloaded straight to your computer and iPhone or a DVD can be shipped to you.

The website is very kid friendly. My 6 year old daughter was able to watch a short preview of several different books on the MobiStories site. We chose the book she wanted and we downloaded it instantly to my iPhone. Now in addition to playing games on mom’s iPhone, she can read books too! Pretty cool!

I have also purchased a book for my 2 year old son, which has caught his attention and keeps him calm for a few minutes. The app really comes is handy when we are patiently waiting on Mac-n- Cheese at a restaurant! The books have not replaced our cherished bedtime stories but it has given my children another way to enjoy reading!

We are pretty happy with this little discovery. It is amazing how far technology has come since I was a child in the 70’s and 80’s when Atari took over my neighborhood! I figure technology will become a big part of my children’s lives so why not embrace it and enhance their learning experiences along the way!

To find the MobiStories app visit your iTunes Store and search under the Education Category or visit their website.
