“Reading is such a great leveller as children who can read can access information on any subject. The recent research showing a dramatic decrease in the number of children receiving bedtime stories is worrying and anything that can help children develop a love of books and reading is hugely beneficial. Having observed children using Sparkup in the Good Toy Guide play clubs, it’s amazing to see how much they enjoy engaging with the books ” Dr Amanda Gummer, Founder of FUNdamentals
Using a tiny camera as its “eye”, and a tiny computer chip as its “brain”, Sparkup simply clips onto any picture book and reads it aloud in your voice. You can record the book yourself, in any language, adding your personal touches or download professionally recorded stories complete with music and sound effects, directly from the Sparkup website. While recording, Sparkup’s tiny camera takes a picture of the book’s cover and each page so that when a child connects Sparkup to the book, Sparkup immediately recognizes the front cover. Following the child’s own reading pace, Sparkup reads the story aloud as he or she turns the pages, even out of order.
Missing Grandpa, Dad, Aunty? Any friend or relative can record their own voice onto Sparkup so that if they aren’t around a child can listen again to them reading the story aloud. Building a 3D magical world around every story, Sparkup ignites the child’s imagination using sound effects and music, building the child’s confidence in their reading, and taking them away from screen-based reading.
Designed for young readers of all ages Sparkup will be available in leading retailers nationwide from July 2014 priced around £39.99. Complete with batteries, USB cable and demo book, Sparkup is set to revolutionise the way a child reads and learns via the magic of the spoken word.
