Books to entertain

Our interactive storybooks combine entertainment and learning to inspire a love of reading in children. Our mission is to help children enjoy books – and to encourage them to read more.

A tool for parents

To become good readers, children need to practise reading as much as they can. Many people find it challenging trying to motivate their little ones to read more. That’s why Pickatale’s interactive books, which can be read and listened to at the same time, are a brilliant support for kids.

A love of reading will grow

The key to developing a love of reading in children is to offer them access to a wide variety of books. It’s important that kids have the opportunity to choose the books they want to read so that they can better understand what interests them.

Children will have hours of fun with our books

Pickatale is a brilliant way to entertain the kids while giving you peace of mind that your little ones aren’t playing games or watching videos all day.
