GoodieBooks are made for iPads and filled with goodies to entertain and engage children in reading, language and learning.

Jim Cullinane is writer and former teacher who blends stories, songs and strange sounds into interactive GoodieBooks complete  with improbable plots, crazy characters, lively language and maybe even a little learning on the way.

Songs contain proven elements to help children learn to read – rhythm, rhyme and repetition, and if you can add a catchy melody as a hook, some lively language, colourful characters and a little humour, then you’re away laughing…

There’s a wide range of original, fresh and fun stories, from horsing around with “Horsey Horse” to tales and tunes of magic gumboots, bumblebees, bling, pumpkins, pirates, monsters and mothers day.

GoodieBooks are great to share in class on a big screen, and are fun to read together, teaching digital literacy skills that children can bring to their own storytelling, either in the classroom or home. Like all good eBooks, they complement rather than compete with paper books.
