Mythili commented on Reading a book to a child

Thanks Illiriana for your feedback.

Steve, let's definitely chat. I definitely agree that that current content on the ipad is very generic- although it definitely is still addictive! We have no ipads in our household, but my sons get to use them at their grandparents. I love your solution to customise with the childs family. I really like using your own family photos to give that personalised experience.

Does your app allow real time reading of stories as well as pre-recorded? One aspect of this challenge and solution that I am focussed on it using technology for 'real' communication as opposed to pre-recorded. I know it is harder, but I feel that live feedback (eg; child comments on aspect of story and/or adult can ask question) is the key to not only improving literacy but creating emotional connections for children without which they cannot thrive in anything.
Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,
Mythili
