Ebookdabra - reading app giveaway for members

The team at Ebookadabra undertook research earlier this year that showed that a
staggering 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 with ‘SLA 4 MONTHS FREE’ in the subject.
