Hot off the press!
What Will I Be? Boardback Book
They may be small but children have some big questions running ‘round in their heads. This chunky 24page boardbook follows one such boy as he spends the day with dad discussing the jobs he might one day do. Master chef, Prime Minister, Pilot, the possibilities are endless!
The first in the ’When I Grow Up’ series of books for children, What Will I Be? celebrates quality time with dad and dares children to dream big and believe!
What Will I Be? Interactive App
This storybook app has a neat twist in that you choose whether the main character is a boy or a girl. Then follow the adventure as he/she spends a day with dad discussing what job he/she might one day do: Chef, Actor, Olympic athlete, the possibilities are endless!
The one and only Brian Blessed narrates the story with characteristic vim and vigour. Add to this subtle animations, interactivity and word-highlighting and you’ve got an app that packs a powerful punch and is a joy to read alone or share with someone special.
