My son uses the app every bedtime. Yesterday, he was deeply engrossed as he lay and listened to books about lions and great white sharks :-)

Gets you involved in the reading!

Involvement by you as a mother or father is important when your child is learning to read. Our app is a tool that can make the process easier and more fun for the whole family. When daily reading practice is part of your child’s homework that needs to be squeezed in between dinner and afternoon activities, our app can act as an extended arm.

Our app distributes children’s literature in a whole new way. Our goal is to make good reading experiences readily available to everyone.

Our reading app gives you the best of both worlds – interactive books that can be read and listened to, with the option to click on the pictures and text to learn new words. Great pictures and colourful illustrations make reading practice a breeze and the closed universe makes it a safe alternative where your children can explore the library on their own.

The app makes reading more fun and less of a chore for my six-year-old son. He listens to the audiobook as he follows the words and sounds. He’s very happy with the books available in the app and doesn’t need any more audiobook apps.

Pickatale wants to revolutionize the way we publish and buy children’s literature, much in the same way as Netflix has changed the market for movies and TV shows. We want to develop new ways of distributing children’s literature so that good reading experiences are readily available to everyone.
