WHO IS “YOU” IN YOU AND THE FLYING SQUID?
Every child wants to be the hero or heroine of the story. With our storybook apps, now they can. Children can personalize their character’s gender, hairstyle, eye color, skin, clothes, accessories, inserting themselves into the story.
WHO IS THE FLYING SQUID?
The Flying Squid is Chopito! Literally a squid-out-of-water, learning everything about life from scratch. But Chopito is lucky, because he has your child to help him make sense of the world.
Chopito the Flying Squid is comical, innocent, imaginative, with a whale-sized heart inside of him. He is any child’s perfectly imperfect friend. He flies like a kite and inspires like a star. He is the squid-child in you.
RECORD YOUR OWN NARRATION
Even if you go on a business trip, your children can still hear your voice through your recorded narration. Also, children can practice their reading skills by recording their voices, which you parents can enjoy when you’re away in a distant, lonely hotel room. (It works both ways!) And use iCloud to back up your narrations.
