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

This week A Story Before Bed launched an iPad app–joining the first generation of publishing-oriented apps for this new device. In the video embedded above (shot at the Tools of Change conference) founder Hillel Cooperman explained how his company helps family and friends read children storybooks via webcam.

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.”
