London, Uk (PressExposure) August 11, 2009 -- Leading edge childrenâs eBook âHoop-la the Hippoâ by Patti Madison was announced as a winner in the iParenting 2009 Outstanding Product Awards. A true recognition that Ebooks4Kidz Ltdâs interactive multi-media childrenâs eBooks are best in class.
Jeanette McLeod, Founder and Director of Ebooks4Kidz Ltd, said âWe are so proud to have our product win this prestigious award. It is true recognition that our fully interactive eBooks for children are approved by a highly regarded independent review team.â
âHoop-la the Hippo is just one example of our books designed specifically to help children enjoy reading and increase literacy. The book demonstrates the features of the most technologically advanced eBooks available.â
Children can choose to have the book read to them and follow along to the audio as the words highlight, modelling fluency and increasing word/sound recognition. In this mode the pages turn automatically.
For young children learning to read independently they can read the story themselves and click on any unfamiliar words to hear them spoken. The illustrations are animated which really brings the books to life and there is a comprehension/recall quiz at the end of each book.
âWe all know that reading more can improve literacy so I encourage parents to try them for themselves and see how much fun their child can have reading eBooks. There is no special reading device required, like the Kindle or Sony eReader â just download them directly to your PC.â
Ebooks4Kidz ebooks are available on their website [http://www.wizz-e.com]. Come and meet Wizz E Wizard and explore how he brings the magic of books to life.
