App Description

**A Children eBook Awards Gold Winner - Best Parent-Child Inspired App**
Get your child ready to learn how to read with Caillou!
Based on the hit PBS KIDS TV series, this animated story featuring Caillou is part of iRead With, a new shared-reading program designed to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.

Follow Caillou and his parents while they try to put Caillou to bed. Caillou hears funny noises and can't fall asleep. That's when the action starts! Mommy and Daddy are always around to help Caillou and show him what the funny noises and shadows really are. Find out if Caillou (and family!) actually get a good night sleep.

“Caillou: What’s That Funny Noise? is an outstanding example of an interactive ebook for young children." - Best Apps For Kids

"Caillou: What’s that Funny Noise? exceeds expectations for graphic design, animation, creativity, and user interface. It’s exactly the kind of story app that will enrich your child’s mind and create a love of books." - Fun Educational Apps

"We have tried many eBooks for our kids and nothing has quite grabbed their attention like iRead With Interactive eBooks. The concept of the stories is genius." - Mom and More

Reached #1 in Books in the US, Canada and France.

iRead With animated stories encourage a participative reading experience engaging both child and parent. This new shared-reading method was created in conjunction with University of McGill University Child Phonology Lab, where extensive research shows that the most effective read-alouds are those where children are actively involved.

Narrative sequences are punctuated by prompts and conversation starters, inviting parent and child to talk about the story and the world around us.

Foundational literacy skills, speech and oral language, vocabulary, phonological awareness, emergent literacy concepts, narrative skills and comprehension strategies.

Touch Living Words to trigger sounds and animations!

Animations are tied to the story to create a meaningful experience. Tap them to find a surprise!

Choose the characters for your avatars, select the level of difficulty for the prompts and set your reading options.

Important words can be recorded. Children can also create and record their own dialogue lines.

Play with Caillou and his friends and create your own animated stories in the Story Theater. This activity develops storytelling and narrative skills, and is also a lot of fun!

Choose to have the story automatically narrated, always after a first shared-reading experience.

There are three reading levels with more living words to discover, and new prompts to engage conversation.
