Rating: none

StorySticker enables readers to create their own audio books. “The joy of reading a physical book with a child is universal,” said Mike Newman, President of stkr.it, LLC.  “StorySticker creates that joy for out of town grandparents and traveling parents – anytime, anywhere. With StorySticker, any children’s book can become a personal audio book.”

The StorySticker audio book process begins with a free mobile app Android, iPhone and iPad or at the StorySticker website. Readers obtain a unique coded sticker that attaches to the inside of any children’s book. Adults who wants to record themselves reading a children’s book can purchase the stickers at a retail bookseller and follow the fun and easy prompts in the app to record an audio book.  The recording is linked with the StorySticker which is then placed in the book itself.  A child can play back the audio book by scanning the StorySticker code or selecting the book.

“The response and participation we’ve had from parents, grandparents, retailers – and children – during the development of StorySticker has been overwhelming,” Mike Newman added. “Reading real, physical books to children is so important to parents and we’ve created a product that keeps the focus on the physical book, not the digital screen.”

The StorySticker product line was introduced at BookExpo America in New York on May 30th at the Jacob Javits Center. StorySticker is the product of Ann Arbor, MI based software company, stkr.it, LLC.
