Barnes & Noble announced the continued expansion of the largest collection of digital children’s picture books through a partnership with Nickelodeon, offering the first-ever digital books from the top entertainment brand for kids.
Books featuring popular Nickelodeon favorites SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer are available in a digital format, only for Barnes & Noble customers through the NOOK Color Reader’s Tablet and the free NOOK Kids for iPad application.
B&N is now offering a dozen interactive NOOK Kids Nickelodeon titles, and will expand to more than 20 next month.
With NOOK Kids exclusive AliveTouch technology, kids can easily find an exciting story, engage with the books and their favorite characters by simply tapping to turn pages, interacting with the text, and zooming in and around gorgeous graphics in SpongeBob’s world under the sea and the places on Dora’s map. Coming soon, select Nickelodeon NOOK Kids titles will also include a Read to Me feature, offering professional narration, so kids can choose to explore books on their own or hear them read out loud.
NOOK Kids also features more than 12,000 children’s chapter books, from classics to new releases.
If you have youngsters and want to get them excited about reading, Ebook Reader Buzz highly recommends that you check out NOOK Kids.
