We love the books our children can enjoy again and again. Reading with a child encourages learning and brings you closer. A Sweet Story moves the joy of reading into the digital world. It's not a game – it's a beautiful book meant to be cherished like other children's classics.

The quality of traditional storytelling with the fun of interactivity

Inspire imagination, arouse curiosity, accompany your child on this

beautifully illustrated adventure.

“A Sweet Story is a charming book packed with lovely illustrations, quirky animation and an assortment of tasty childhood memories. After one reading of A Sweet Story, I found my daughter staying up late, hiding the iPad under the covers to read it one more time. That might be the highest recommendation one can give.”

Linda Simensky, Vice President of Children’s Programming at PBS
