iPad Reading for Kids: A Story Before Bed Launches iPad App

A Story Before Bed for iPad customers can record their own stories from our library of high quality Children’s books … There will soon be over 100 quality children’s books in our library with more being added every single week from publishers such as Charlesbridge, Immedium, Bubblegum, Gingerbread House, and Chronicle Books.”
