Peter Rabbit Pop-up Digital Book

The problem with paper pop-up books in our experience is that they can easily be damaged by over-eager little hands and, whilst that may also be true of the iPad, we think that the future is in digital books, if not in small part for their durability. The latest iPad interactive digital book to catch our eye is PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Loudcrow Interactive.

This is a 50 page digital book that uses the original books' beautiful illustrations and has some really nice features that we feel will definitely appeal to children (and the young at heart). These include pull-tabs, spin wheels and 'spring-mounted elements' plus a classical piano score which is complemented by realistic ambient sounds.

This is apparently the first in a series of the 'PopOut!' digital books from Loudcrow Interactive so we can expect more of the same quality apps in the future.

The best way to understand the interactive features of this app are to watch the video.

PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit is available on the US app store for $4.99 (not available in the UK store at the time of posting).

Main Features:

  • Touch and drag objects to make them “spring” to life or tilt to watch them slide and move
  • Objects that literally PopOut!™ of the page to delight you and your family
  • Beautiful vocal performance, music, and sound effects will immerse you in the story
  • "Read to Me" with word highlighting to help improve reading skills
  • Or read it yourself and hear individual words spoken with the tap of a finger
  • Over 50 pages of authentic text and illustrations with realistic page turning interactions just like the original hardcover book
