MrsP.com Releases First Interactive Fairy Tale Book
Kids Learn Reading Skills in Conjunction with Free Website
MrsP.com, the popular, award-winning children’s storytelling website, announced the publication today of its first interactive storybook, which uses Internet technology in a new way to help kids learn to read. Mrs. P's Four Favorite Fairy Tales and Funny Stories collects in book form stories and introductions available on video at the free website and at the iTunes Store. Children will be able to follow along in the book as Mrs. P, played by The Drew Carey Show star Kathy Kinney, reads the stories with them.
“I’m very proud of Mrs. P’s new book because of its unique ability to help young readers improve their skills,” said Kinney. “Children and parents can open the book and read along with me at my website. We even have a Magic Dictionary at MrsP.com, so if kids comes across a word they don’t know, they can just pause the video and easily find out what it means.”
Studies have shown one of the most productive ways for children to improve their reading skills, particularly for learning ‘sight words,’ is to see the words as they are read to. “Everyone’s worried about the Internet making books and reading obsolete. We’ve found a wonderful way to make them work together,” Kinney said.
The new book includes “Jack and the Beanstalk” and “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” features 90 original color illustrations and offers new, comic introductions to the stories from Mrs. P.
"Mrs. P's Four Favorite Fairy Tales and Funny Stories" will be available to the public at Amazon and other booksellers across the country via online ordering. Additional information, including a downloadable flyer, can be found at http://www.mrsp.com/Purchase.aspx
