Apple TV App For Kids Encourages Reading

Apple TV Generation 4

There is a new Apple TV app for Kids. 9 To 5 Mac recently pointed out a new app for kids that accesses iBooks called Books StoryTime. The app includes a function called Read-Aloud to display both the text of a book and provide audio playback of the text as well as page turns. The function is similar to features found The Amazon Kindle. 

Parents may well enjoy allowing their kids to hear hand-picked stories via their television and encourage reading instead of watching TV.

There are only a few titles available for the service at this point but you can bet that Apple will push this further to differentiate itself from competition. Current titles include:

  • Green Eggs and Ham
  • The Little Red Hen
  • Goodnight Moon
  • Chicka Chicka ABC
  • Big Brother Daniel
  • The ABCs of Cookies
  • Meet Tracker
