Interactive Disney Books Are Always Available!

Now available! These browser-based, interactive online titles from the Disney Digital Books website are “always available” for simultaneous use.

These books are available for kids of all ages. They can read along, too. Use Disney’s magic pen to turn pages, hear words pronounced, find definitions, and access additional help.

Disney’s interactive online books can be accessed on Windows and Mac computers that are connected to the internet.

 I was also successful (in some cases limited functional ability)using an iPad 2 (connected to the Internet) with a "flash browser" from the App Store. (I have been somewhat successful with iPad apps Photon and  iSwifter with the books. I recommend you try the app before buying it. Note: the books which are not read-a-long, you will need to use your keyboard to turn the pages. In the app click the keyboard icon, and find the arrow key at the top of the keyboard.) They may possibly work on an Android tablet with "flash" enabled. (It somewhat worked on my Kindle Fire but not well.) Let us know if they work on your Android tablet.

To find Disney Books in the eMedia Catalog click on the Disney Ad in the left column or browse through the Kid's eBook Fiction section or select the “Disney Online Books” format in the Advanced Search.

Find and check out a title and then click on the “Launch” button, the book will open in your web browser.

These are great. I was thinking about getting a few interactive eBooks for children for my niece and nephews for Christmas and this would be perfect. Thanks so much for sharing.
