[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - EducationApps Ltd is pleased to announce the release of two Christmas Storybooks: 'Nonsense Christmas Rhymes' and 'Twelve Days of Christmas', produced in collaboration with Oxford University Press (OUP), the world's largest university press. The apps were made available via the iTunes App Store at the end of November and are EducationApps first apps available on the iPad.
Liz Cross, Children's Publisher at OUP says: "These books have been delighting children and their parents at Christmas for many years, and it's wonderful that they are now available to share in a new way."
George Burgess, 19-year-old Founder and Managing Director of EducationApps says: "We're excited to take these fun Christmas titles onto the iPad and make them available to children all over the world. We hope the splendid, humorous narration will bring the spirit of the festive season to children and parents alike."
Within the app, children can tap 'Read to me' to have the entire book read to them or 'I'll read' to try and read the stories themselves; if they have difficulty at any time, they can simply tap a page to hear the narration.
