Copenhagen, Hovedstaden -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/03/2016 --Book&ME, the revolutionary new interactive book that blend the physical book with the digital technology of today, is live on Kickstarter and a crowdfunding success story having already raised over 100% of their campaign goal.
Children everywhere love a good story. However, in today's busy world, they've become accustomed to faster moving images, digital applications and touch screens. A good story captures their imagination but it's getting harder and harder to capture their attention. By bridging the gap between digital and traditional literature and allowing personalization, Book&ME is a story that will both captivate and inspire children.
"What sets Book&ME apart from other customizable books is that it allows your child's imagination to guide the narrative, resulting in a completely unique and personal book," says founder Inbal Lieblich, "Book&ME brings together the charm of reading tactile books with the excitement of a digital app, thus bridging the gap for families that face this digital dilemma."
Parents and children are invited throughout the story to discover and interact with the book by co-creating illustrations for the missing figures by using the app and the stickers as tools. Using the app's photo stencils, parents and children can fill in various shapes (a cloud, a key, a whale or others) with whatever they'd like. They then print the images on the matching stickers that come with the book and place them as they read along.
What sets Book&ME apart from other customizable books is that it allows the child's imagination to guide the narrative, resulting in a completely unique and personal book. Book&ME is more than just a story that sits on the shelf, with its accompanying app and customizable stickers, it makes storytime creative and inspires bonding time while encouraging children to engage and interact with their environment. The first book from Book&ME is a story called 'A Whale in the Basement,' a rhythmic tale about a child looking for his missing sock.
