E-BookBox Bengali iPad Application has animated stories in HD quality. BookBox engages native authors to create or adapt stories based on their unique cultures and traditions from around the world and only those that bring cultural, social, and educational values to our readers are chosen. The stories are narrated in a clear and child friendly voice.
Watch, read and learn while you have fun.
BookBox stories are based on a methodology called Same Language Subtitling (SLS) where a child relates phonetic sounds with visual subtitles to accelerate the development of reading skills. As proven through sophisticated eye-tracking research when SLS is integrated into a "book", reading happens automatically and subconsciously. BookBox aims to not only enhance children's basic literacy, but also facilitate their proficiency in native & foreign languages.
In addition to the high quality animated stories, you can read the entire story, which is available in text format.
Share with friends & family.
Once you have started enjoying our stories, you will most probably want to share it with friends and family. There’s a simple sharing option for Facebook, Twitter and e-mail along with every story.
BookBox Inc. is a social enterprise that innovated the concept of ‘AniBooks’ or animated books to support early literacy and language skills. We overcome the distribution challenges of print by making reading available to children on digital and electronic media.
Our AniBooks are powered by ‘Same Language Subtitling’ (SLS) which makes reading easy and fun. In our conception, a ‘book’ is a reading experience that can travel in print and other audio-visual media. Visit www.bookbox.com to know more.
