This week we are conducting a survey among our Estonian fans about how much do their children enjoy reading and would they like to contribute into making new interactive digital books for their kids. If you understand Estonian, you can take part in the survey here: http://tinyurl.com/jomybooks-kysitlus. A family photoshoot with Katrina Tang will be drawn between all the respondents.
According the the JomyBooks team member Taavi Lindmaa the survey and a mini campaign for increasing children’s interest in reading was conducted because the research has shown that children are much more interested in playing with their computer than reading books. “I think that this is inevitable that computers are becoming a bigger part of children’s lives as well. But in order for them to spend their time behind computers as qualitatively as possible it is needed to have more educational applications, which are lacking so far,” he thinks.
With soon to be published JomyBooks environment everyone can create free digital books for private usage to be read from tablets or pc’s. “Isn’t it a good idea to create a digital book for you kid with his or her named hero and characters their familiar with,” said Lindmaa and added, “and if you are not familiar with for example illustrating, you can find an illustrator through our environment.”
