Ladybird Me Books App for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

LadybirdiPadFans of Ladybird's classic tales and illustrations now have the opportunity to bring the nostalgia of their own childhoods to a whole new generation with the Me Books App.

The app costs 69p and once downloaded gives you access to one title – The Zoo. It's a simple enough idea; tap various spots on the page to hear the text read aloud and the sound effects – in this case the various animals at the zoo. The added twist is that you can also record yourself (or your child) reading the story – and even make your own noises if the fancy takes you.

There are a further 10 titles available, costing £1.99 each. Find out more at the App Store.

  • Ahoy!
    Having read this post I went out and bought the app.
    It’s hilarious!
    The facility to replace the embedded audio leaves it open to much japery and hi-jinks.
    Thanks for the post.
    Oh, yes,
