Digital Picture Books
get spectacular results in early educationgraph
Children learn twice as much new words when they watch our animated picture books compared to children that are being read to in the conventional way.

This is shown by an independent, multi-year studie by the University of Leiden*.

Especially children with language disadvantage benefit from the extra meaningfull context that our digital picture books give the child.

These scientific findings have dramatically increased the popularity of our digital picture books on digital whiteboards and school pc's.
