[prMac.com] Silver Spring, Maryland - Meander Art and PicPocket Books extend their partnership in publishing children's book app titles with the new children's book app release "Snowflakes Are Falling" for iOS devices. "Snowflakes are Falling" brings back all of the wonderful childhood memories of a winter day. A garden full of freshly fallen snow awaits Sophie and her cat, Sam. As snowflakes tumble down Sophie and Sam are joined by a winter white rabbit, a cheerful robin, and a magical snowman. As day begins to fade, hot chocolate awaits by a cozy fire. Features of the app include original artwork, animated snow, touchable audio hot spots to make the cat meow and the robin sing, learn-to-read audio highlighting, and a professional audio recording. Whether you and your kids are waiting and wishing for a snow day, or enjoying snowflakes of your own, the new "Snowflakes Are Falling" book app is the perfect companion to your day!

About Meander Art and Gina Ricci: Born in England, Gina Ricci is a self-taught artist. Her style of illustration reflects her childhood favorites such as Kenneth Grahame's "The Wind in the Willows," A. A. Milne's "Winnie the Pooh," the poems of Walter de la Mare, and the art of Beatrix Potter. Over the years Gina has worked in various mediums and uses Prismacolor coloring pencils for her illustrations. The vibrant artwork transfers beautifully to the digital format, while keeping the traditional look of a picture book.
She believes that digital books play an important roll and can encourage children to become avid readers using all formats of reading, both electronic and traditional.

Based in Silver Spring, Maryland, PicPocket Books was founded in the spring of 2009 by the husband and wife team of Lynette and Manuel Mattke, who share a passion for children's literature and technological innovation. To download any of the PicPocket Books apps, please visit the iTunes App Store and search for 'PicPocket Books.' PicPocket Books offer parents and their kids an alternative to flashy, and sometimes violent, fast-paced video games. Their book apps have some simple animations and/or interactive hot spots to encourage exploration and engagement. Overall, they strive to remain quite faithful to the original books with their apps and want to be careful not to obscure the reading experience with too much interactivity. They champion books and reading aloud to kids, and see bookapps as supplements, not replacements, for print books and the valuable time parents can spend reading with their kids. If having kids' books available on mobile devices means more exposure to stories and enthusiasm for reading for kids, then that is a success!
