The Spotlight

July 2014 - Immedium

1. News
2. Upcoming Books
3. Events


A. Read our stories on Bookboard
We're pleased to partner with Bookboard - an innovative app that encourages kids to read.

Enjoy Immedium's stories with a free trial, available on iPads and computers with Google Chrome web browsers. A monthly subscription provides unlimited access to 500+ more books for children up to age 12.

Bookboard's goal is to create motivated readers - as kids read, they're rewarded by unlocking new books to add to their collection. This system is carefully designed and proven to motivate; a parent called it "shockingly effective."

Both Bookboard and Immedium help kids discover new titles and have fun!

B. Train Show in California
Join us at the annual European Train Enthusiasts (ETE) model railroad show at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, CA from July 26-27 (museum admission, 10 am to 5 pm).

Train-loving kids always enjoy our locomotive adventures:
- Justin Time: The Pancake Express
- Timmy and Tammy's Train of Thought
along with the rainbow of our other stories.

See O and N scale European model trains in steam-operated layouts, and participate in hobbyist lectures and door prizes. Plus learn about the museum's awesome collection of planes and watch the takeoffs and landings at the nearby airport!

C. Sid the Squid is an iTunes app!
Sid the Squid comes to life!

Author David Derrick created interactive animations and narrated our brand new iOS app. It is produced by our pals at Caffeine Free (www.caffeine-free.com)

iPhoneMom named it a Top 10 Awesome App: " This story teaches children of all ages to follow their dreams and be ambitious. If you would like to share a cute story with a great message, be sure to check out Sid the Squid!"

Also Sid's storybook is in its 3rd printing which will arrive next month.


Play with your Food

By David Derrick
