Are you looking for a new experience for your small children during these grey days of winter? Check out the Library’s new iVOX books. If you have an account with the Library and can access a computer, tablet, or smartphone, you can help your child experience this small but intriguing selection of books.
What’s different about the books? Well, for one thing, when you open up a book, a pleasant voice reads the words to your child. But there’s more: each page expands into a moving picture that follows along with the reading, enacting the story before your eyes.
In Jet the Cat Is Not a Cat, for example, the story follows Jet as she learns to swim and has other adventures that lead her to a new understanding of what it means to be a cat. The moving images are bright and colorful and designed to engage and delight your youngsters.
