Books That Kids Can Talk To Launched

Children can now talk to characters in Readyland’s new books using innovative Alexa voice technology

Readyland, a team of experts who integrate printed materials with a smart speaker and voice assistant applications, has launched the first printed books that you can talk to via Alexa.

Kids can talk to the characters in the books, play games, respond to questions, select songs and become part of the story.

Children can make different choices and create unique experiences whenever they open books, which can inspire imagination and encourage them to spend more of their time reading. Readyland’s newest book titled Jack and the Beanstalk is already available and has joined the likes of A Playdate with Rosie, and Ricky and Three Little Pigs, all available to read on Amazon.

Joshua Garrett, co-founder and chief creative officer said, “We’re reinventing the traditional, printed book experience and the response from kids and parents has been tremendous. In over 20 years of making products for kids, I’ve never seen anything as interactive and intuitive.”

Readyland brings a library of printed books to life using innovative voice technology, creating the new and impressive Alexa Interactive Books category where screen-free reading meets audio entertainment.

By using an Alexa-enabled device at home or the Alexa smartphone app, kids can explore books in a new way with engaging dialogues and interactive games that are revealed every time they turn a page.
