Recently, my wife bought a new pop-up book to read to our kids. And they managed to tear one of the pages within the first 24 hours. But there is still much to be keen on! It’s a book about vampires, monsters, and ghosts. It’s fun, they discover something new every time and I think they just love the innocent horror you can only find in this type of book. So today I had to flip through the pages again, and again. Take a look yourself: Pop-up Haunted House.
After putting them to bed, I scrolled through my Instagram feed. And stumbled upon a new mobile app Bookful. Even though it’s entirely in English, I’m probably going to introduce it to my (Dutch-speaking) kids later.
Sure, recent studies might claim that reading print books are still a better choice. You can’t deny that the magic on the digital screens is a great way to add some variation to bedtime story reading.
