Use iPad apps in your library or classroom storytimes? Enter to win a free download of Oceanhouse Media‘s newly-upgraded “Record and Share” storybook apps. Have a preschooler or early reader who loves Dr. Seuss? I’ll bet there are a few grandmas like me who have toddler apps on their cell phone & would love to provide the read-along voice. Or what a great literacy tool for the classroom – an opportunity for some serious application of echo reading! You can see the app in action in the video below. I have a limited number of downloads generously donated by Oceanhouse Media to give away – just leave your name & where you’ll use the app in the comments below. Be sure to note which Apple app you’d like- there are currently three titles available: Dr. Seuss’s ABC, The Cat in the Hat, and Green Eggs and Ham I’ll announce the winners on October 12th.
And now for something completely different – the winners of And When She Was Good , mega-award-winner Laura Lippman’s tale of a suburban prostitute/madame/single-mom embroiled in a murder committed by her lover, narrated Linda Emond. Thanks to Harper Audio for providing TWO copies for lucky winners: the St Petersburg College Library in Clearwater, Florida and the Brosville/Cascade Branch of the Pittsylvania County Public Library in Danville Virginia. Happy listening by the patrons of those two libraries!
