About Living Books

Originally introduced in 1992 by Broderbund Software, Living Books were the industry’s first highly interactive animated storybooks embraced by educators, praised by parents and cherished by children. Years ahead of their time, the multi-language Living Books won numerous awards and were cited for their ground-breaking technology in keynote addresses by senior executives of both Apple and Microsoft. Twenty years later, Wanderful has assembled key members of the original Living Books team to re-invent the wildly popular interactive storybooks for today's digital devices.

"I'm glad they're making these products accessible. Children learn through different modalities. There is research indicating that children with autism have learned successfully through products displayed on tablets. "It's a good idea to make learning more accessible to children. If it's fun and interesting for them to learn, so much the better."
