You may have seen Caribu featured in the most recent Apple keynote event showing off the new iPad Air 2. This very cool app connects two readers from down street or across the world so they can explore a picture book together – perfect for long distance read alouds. Users will be able to see each other’s picture just like FaceTime as they turn the pages of a book on their screen.
Caribu is a great app for reading buddies young and old. It can be used in a school environment to connect readers to partners in a neighboring school or to students in another time zone. Caribu is also a great recommendation for parents looking to motivate reluctant readers at home.
Caribu comes with a couple free books and the rest are downloaded through in-app purchases.
