I’m lucky; both my kids are avid readers. If yours aren’t – or even if they are and you’re simply looking for another way to integrate reading and language into your geeklings’ daily screentime – a new free online storytelling service called Cooberry is here to help.
Named for a special fruit that grows on this hidden isle in the Pacific, Cooberry Island is the home of a growing cast of talking animals and the location of their many magical misadventures. Through animation, guided storytelling, easy-to-navigate pictures books/ebooks and a smattering of fun, relevant factoids, Cooberry strives to create edutainment content that stokes kids’ imaginations and provides parents with a safe, nurturing online environment through which to share this valuable story time.
Specifically tailored for children 4-12, Cooberry promises to provide regular, manageable doses of new entertainment. Whether your family enjoys this content in daily five-minute blocks or all at once in a longer weekend session – which is perfect for single parents like me – Cooberry.com is sure to become a new online destination for learning, sharing and fun.
Available now on your PC or Mac (and some mobile devices), Cooberry island beckons – as do your newest animated friends JJ, Ace and Kate… and even the cooberries themselves!
