- Designed specifically for young readers to easily use, the pages can be turned automatically or manually.
- Onscreen text and highlighted speech balloons help readers make associations between the words they hear and see. It is the closest experience to being read a book that any app can deliver. As with all TOON Books, repeated use builds reading fluency.
