What is it
Me Books is the independent eBookshop for children aged 2-10. Children can choose from hundreds of books from classics like Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit to modern favourites such as Peppa Pig and Disney’s Frozen. Me Books lets you and your little ones create personal editions of some of the most popular picture books ever published. Children can record their own voice, so it is their voice telling the story. They can highlight any image to add their own sound effects so the book becomes really personal to them and the story comes alive. Children can be as imaginative and creative as they want.
Also it has the ability for parents to record their voice. So if they are away, their children can still have mummy/daddy read to them at bedtime.

What our experts think
Me Books are such a wonderful ebook concept for children, keeping to the original books but adding value and encouraging creativity beyond this and so appropriate to such a wide age range of children. This really helps to nurture a love of reading which is so valuable to youngsters. We were delighted to see such a wide range of books available. We saw children getting really enthusiastic about tailoring the audio of the books before to hear their own reading of the book but, particularly with younger children, to add funny sound effects leading to endless amusement! The ability to allow a parent to add their voice reading the story was also really valued by those who are sometimes away from their children.
It would be even better if...
