Silver Spring, MD, December 05, 2010 --(PR.com)-- PicPocket Books (www.picpocketbooks.com) publishes quality picture book literature on mobile digital platforms. Children ages 2-8 can now enjoy their favorite stories on the go—at the doctor’s office, at the store, on the airplane; any situation where it’s impractical to bring physical books along.

PicPocket Books combine the beauty and distinctive quality of picture books with professionally produced audio narrations and interactive visual text, with an emphasis on encouraging early literacy and instilling an early love of books and reading in children.”

“PicPocket Books are not replacements for print books or the valuable time parents can spend reading to their children, but educational and culturally valuable alternatives to video games or movies, especially for families on-the-go,” says Lynette Mattke, Co-founder and Publisher of PicPocket Books. “We publish titles as true-to-the-book as possible, using full-color illustrations, professionally recorded audio and interactive highlighting of words as the story is read.”

"The First Christmas" can be downloaded from iTunes as an iPad or iPhone app.
