New app helps parents with summer reading

Toronto, Canada – Rival Schools and publisher Loud Crow Interactive today are proud to announce the release and immediate availability of The Little People 1.0 for iOS, the third standalone storybook app in the award-winning Bramble Berry Tales series. Parents can choose to hand over their mobile devices to their kids with a fully narrated, voice-acted storybook app. Designed for young readers, simple touch interactions encourage kids to explore the screen. They are rewarded with effects that range from jiggly characters and sound effects to puffs of flour that pepper the screen.

Features:
* New and original story world
* Multiple reading modes: Read to me, Autoplay, Read Myself
* Inspired by traditional Indigenous language and oral history
* Learn vocabulary and language: Experience the story in English, French, Spanish, and Cree
* Educational word highlighting and definitions for young readers
* Touch, tilt & slide to bring the story to life

Unlike other story apps that focus on gaming elements, The Little People emphasizes education through reading and visual storytelling. Readers join kids Thomas and Lily in the story as they encounter the Maymaygwaysiwak, a group of mysterious and mischievous people from the forest. Read and listen to the story in multiple languages, toggle between English, Spanish, French, or the original Cree language.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 216 MB
