More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

The award-winning "Leo the Lightning Bug" is now available as an interactive omBook for your Android device.

"'Leo. Leo! Even my name is small!' cried Leo
'Oh no, Leo, not at all.’ explained his mother. 'Leo' means 'Lion'. Inside, you’re as big and brave as a lion!' and as she said this, her lightning bug light lit up brightly."

Children will identify with Leo and grasp the importance of believing in themselves as they follow Leo’s adventure to make his very own light. The other lightning bugs tease him, but with determination, motherly support, and a little luck, Leo eventually lights up in the night. Transformed by his newfound confidence, he now laughs at himself, plays with the others, and enjoys a good night’s sleep!

New features only available in this omBook include professional narration, background audio and enlarged artwork for each scene. To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read. By combining the original text and artwork of the book with features that entertain and promote reading, this omBook appeals to readers of all ages.

    One of my 2yr old's favorite

    We have 'Leo the lightening bug' in both ebook and regular book copy and it remains one of my 2 yr old's favorite story and mine. Leo's just keep trying and it'll take practice attitude is a great message for little ones, and older ones, trying to do something and lots of new experiences. While I often read this with my 2 yr old, both she and I Love the narration & voices, or read to me option, that comes with it. nmk

    This is a book, not an app!

    Why are there books on here? This is for apps.
