The latest craze in streaming services is making kids, parents and teachers smile, appropriately titled Vooks –as in video books. It’s bringing children's books to life with a whole new level of animated illustrations and narrated stories like the one written by former teacher and a person many now know as the “the poet laureate of the pandemic” Kitty O'Meara, whose book And the People Stayed Home officially debuted on Vooks.
“I partnered with them because like my story they have the same mission of hope and are all about finding that silver lining during this time,” the author told us, “how good things can come out of the pandemic and we’re really encouraging readers to put their faith in building a hopeful future together, while apart.”
Vooks works with publishers, illustrators and authors like Kitty to produce thoughtfully animated content, with the artist’s original intent and aesthetic carried throughout. Music and sound effects are added along with a voiceover reading the words, creating a truly unique storybook in motion. Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet narrated Kitty’s book, which is poised to be an international best seller.
And the Vooks library is ever-expanding. You can find everything, from the classics to other popular new books like And the People Stayed Home. Their mission is to inspire a lifelong love of books, reading and great stories. Vooks truly is quality screen time you can feel good about and you can use it on any device, anywhere, anytime – titles can be watched offline too.
Plus, parents get a free 30-day trial, and teachers -- one year free. From there customers can subscribe for $4.99/month with an auto-renewing subscription. Check out vooks.com to learn more.
