Ebookdabra - reading app giveaway for members

The team at Ebookadabra undertook research earlier this year that showed that astaggering one in 20   British children aged between three and seven have never read a picture book. As a result Ebookadabra has launched a ‘Netflix of children’s picture books’ that will help kids discover a magical world of reading. For a limited time only, Ebookadabra is offering SLA members an exclusive 4 months free subscription to the app. The subscription service is available through both the AppStore and Google Play and normally costs £2.99 a month, after a 14 day free trial. Ebookadabra allows a family to create up to four children’s profiles plus a parent access. It features over a thousand picture books, from leading publishers such as Disney, Harper Collins and Parragon – that’s just 10p a day for an ocean of reading in your pocket.

Grown-ups can record an audio version of any book in the Ebookadabra library for their child to listen to at any time. There are hundreds of pre-recorded audio books too with ‘read-along’ feature that highlights words as they are read. Ebookadabra works off-line allowing up to 15 books to be downloaded to read on the move. With personalised avatars and themes, virtual rewards and a system of educational games that unlock when a story is read, Ebookadabra is safe and fun reading world for young kids.

Ebookadabra is also developing a version for primary schools which will be available in the New Year. Ebookadabra for School will provide a library of books and a system of rewards for use in class so that kids can learn and have fun whilst teachers/librarians can monitor their progress on a ‘teacher dashboard’ and can use the app to choose books of different levels and interests tailored to kids’ needs. Children will be able to continue their reading at home on their own device or by following an audio book read by their teacher or librarian. 

Offer ends on Monday 1 st  January 2018. To claim your 4 months free – please email Tom Grayson at tom.grayson[at]moondogbooks.com with ‘SLA 4 MONTHS FREE’ in the subject.
