This is the first time Create-A-Scene is available on the iPhone, increasing the amount of interactive entertainment provided by iStoryTime books.
Kung Fu Panda 2 follows Po as he lives his dream as the Dragon Warrior protecting the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, the Furious Five - Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey. But Po's new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu.
"We're very excited to bring fans original movie images and audio from the film before the movie debuts," said Woody Sears, co-Founder of zuuka. "Adding such a fun and family-friendly title reinforces our commitment of providing quality storybooks to our quickly expanding library of premier children's digital entertainment."
iStoryTime brings the joy of a kids' book to the convenience of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. iStoryTime books are illustrated and narrated, so children can enjoy the book even when parents are busy. Best of all, the apps are simple to use because they are designed for kids two-years and up. Pages can be turned automatically or manually depending on the age and preference of the user. And readers can choose the style of narration - an adult voice, child voice or none at all.
iStoryTime is the perfect way for parents to entertain their children while waiting to go to dinner at a restaurant, on a long airplane or train trip or even when they need a few more minutes to finish grocery shopping. And of course, it's a great way to enjoy a story before bedtime. iStoryTime provides great books to entertain and educated the kids on the go.
