The Possum’s Tale Storybook App is designed to encourage engagement with younger readers. The Storybook App can be enjoyed by readers as young as 4 years of age. Containing the full story of The Possum’s Tale, the story can now be enjoyed anytime on your, or your child’s, mobile device.
Simulating an actual book, the app uses page turning animations and accompanying text displayed upon each page. In addition, the Storybook App provides a, “Read to Me,” function which plays audio, paired with highlighted words, that can help expand your child’s vocabulary. In addition to this, the app contains a feature to record your voice, or that of another loved one, to better personalize the story reading. If you, or another loved one, discover that you aren’t able to make it to bedtime reading, simply record yourself reading the story, and your child can still enjoy sharing a bedtime story with you from afar. With this feature, a grandparent can purchase the app for their grandchildren and the developers have created an EASY way to record your voice so the grandchildren hear you! This function is perfect for parents in the military, or needing to work late nights, as they can still read a bedtime story at night.

This task is engaging and fun for children to participate in, and leads to another positive message as a reward for locating all of the objects.
