[prMac.com] Los Angeles, California - Sock n Boots Worldwide, a burgeoning children's book publisher, has today announced the release of Sock n Boots Adventures for iPad devices running on iOS 4.1 or later. Sock n Boots Adventures is a dynamic storybook app that updates three tales from the critically acclaimed Sock n Boots book series and turns them into interactive mobile adventures. Each story - starring the quirky duo of Sock and his wise friend Boots - includes scores of dynamic elements, animated thrills, and chances for kids and parents alike to interact with the app's two heroes! Not to be outdone, the app gives users a chance to tell each Sock and Boots adventure they way they'd like, as well as offering a fully featured coloring book! Sock n Boots Adventures is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for $0.99 in the Entertainment category.
Released to universal acclaim by children, parents, and pundits alike, the Sock n Boots book series has established itself as a perfect catalyst to bringing young readers and their parents together with stories that both entertain and encourage kids to gain a passion for reading. Sock n Boots Adventures for the iPad takes three of these beloved stories and turns them into full-fledged interactive spectacles where users can touch and hear the story unfolding in front of them via vibrant professional animations and audio narration. The app gives users the power to enjoy each of its three included stories in three equally unique ways as well. What remains constant though is these stories' power to engage children together with parents and encourage them to work together and bond while experiencing Sock n Boots Adventures.
Stories can be played like a movie if users want to simply lay back and enjoy, with the help of automatic audio narration where they get to control the pace, or as a conventional storybook where they read along themselves while playing around with the interactive elements included on every page! Advanced readers that create their own Sock n Boots adventures can share what they make via Facebook, and let friends know how they feel via Twitter as well! An education word association game is even included to help beginning readers.
For the uninitiated, the Sock n Boots series stars a mischevious Sock and his wise best friend Boots, following the pair's misadventures as they learn valuable real-world lessons and connect with children all over the world. A quest for knowledge lies at the heart of each story. Accordingly each Sock n Boots story begins with a question, and through the character's whimsical journeys answers are always found, and important lessons instilled within the reader in the process. The iPad serves as the perfect platform to engage young readers and help parents or grandparents connect with their kids regardless of whether it's through a story told at bedtime or as a daytime activity including the whole family.
