I love books and magazines. I adore kids’ books too. And so I was one of those technophobes who thought that maybe a tablet or e-reader would diminish the fun that is flipping pages. Of course, it’s not so. Once I got a Nook into my hands, I became entranced with how easy it is to carry my reading with me. Now I also use it to play Angry Birds. And read trashy tabloid magazines. And download stuff for my kids.
You see, there are children’s books, like Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, that are kind of magical when they play out on the Nook, with all the bright colors on the screen. I also like checking out reads like Sandra Boynton’s Snuggle Puppy. It’s maybe the sweetest book ever, but I was always curious how the author would say (or sing!) it, since it’s definitely open to dramatic interpretation. With the Nook version, you can hear Boynton read it or do it your own way.
The exciting news from Barnes and Noble is that Laurie Berkner, every baby’s favorite singer, is launching her new book for the Nook, called Party Day. It’s got singing and dancing animation and is, in short, perfect for a baby or toddler. To celebrate, we can give one lucky family their very own Nook (worth $249) and a code to download Berkner’s book (worth $9.99). Yay! That’s worth $258.99!
