Pickatale is a newly developed interactive storybook & audiobook app for children. By combining text, sound and illustrations, Pickatale helps young people develop a love of reading that lasts a lifetime.
The main difference from regular audiobooks is that the children can look at illustrations and read the text as they follow each word, which is highlighted on the screen as the narrator reads. This audio support can be an important factor, both when it comes to developing reading skills and expanding children’s vocabulary.
The key to developing a love of reading is access to books children like. To become good readers children need to practise but reading should preferably be interesting and fun. The most important thing you as a parent can do is to facilitate and encourage your child to read. Our children are born into a digital world and it is important to meet them where they are. Our app distributes children’s literature in a whole new way and makes a wide selection of books available at an affordable price. Our goal is to make good reading experiences readily available to everyone – anytime, anywhere.
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 Read & Listen app gives you the best of both worlds – interactive books that can be read and listened to, with the possibility to click on the pictures to find out the names of objects. 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.
Our library is also available offline so your child’s favourite book is always just a click away. 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.
