Dusty D. Dawg Has Feelings Too

August Branchesi

Lillian Vernon presents its first animated, personalized children's storybook for all Apple devices. "Dusty D. Dawg Has Feelings Too" is a children's book specialized for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Kids will read along and learn about exploring their feelings with Dusty D. Dawg.

This eBook has a number of great features:

• Personalize the book with your own voice on each page. You can use this to record the child reading the story themselves, or allow visiting family to record and continue to read to the child after they are away.

• Add your child's photo and name to the first page of the book. This lets them know it was a special book made just for them.

• Fun animations appear throughout the book as the child reads the story.

• This is a universal app, created to run on all devices and take advantage of their strengths. For example, the iPad version features larger storyboards while the iPhone version allows you to use your camera to snap a photo when personalizing.

Lillian Vernon is providing this eBook free of charge. Please visit our website using the link in the application for special deals and offers. You can even sign up for notifications about storybook releases and receive special offers.

Thanks for trying our storybook. We hope you have as much fun with it as we did making it! If you did like it, please take a moment to rate our application in the app store. We want to release more storybooks for free in the app store!

TESTIMONIALS
“Kid in Story. Finally a GREAT Social Story App!” Shannon Rosa, Squidalicious

“An excellent app if you are looking for more creative freedom in your child’s learning experiences.” KinderTown

5 Stars – “I am impressed and found it difficult to write this review without saying ‘It’s so easy and fun!’ every other sentence. The truth is that it performs as promised, is attractive and no bugs were found while putting it through the motions." Technology in Special Education

“By involving the child in making the social story, the child receives an in-depth social skills session and then the book can be sent to the child's parent or caregiver via email or Dropbox for ongoing reinforcement of the skills. We found the ability to customize the story by placing the child's photo into the scene to be highly motivating and engaging for all users.” BridgingApps

WHAT’S INSIDE KID IN STORY AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Kid in Story Book Maker templates come to life when you place your child or student’s picture on every page. The 20 story templates cover a variety of practical and fanciful topics from promoting good hygiene by washing your hands, to a playful exploration of emotions and facial expressions, to a fantasy visit to San Francisco! Older children can also write their own custom story or modify any of the templates as they see fit.

Here is how you can personalize the stories and share with friends and family:
Add your child’s photo into the story template background. Our unique Locolens™ image detection technology allows you to snap a portrait (or use one already saved in your library), and pluck your “kid” out of the picture and place him or her in the story.
Modify the story by editing the story templates
Record your own voice or the child’s voice as the narrator
Once complete, children will enjoy reading or playing their very own personalized visual story
Share it with others via email, pdf, or Dropbox.
