Highlights for Children Releases 'All About,' New Digital App for Kids

Digital Extension to Popular 'All About' Book Series Offers Stories and Poems, Challenging Games and Puzzles, Recordable Video Action Rhymes and More for Children 4 and Up

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - December 17, 2014) - Highlights for Children is pleased to announce the release of Highlights All About, a new bookshelf-style mobile application for use with iOS and Android operating systems. The app, now available for download on iTunes and Google Play, was developed for tablet devices from Highlights' recently released themed activity book collection, the All About series. The Highlights All About app can be used independently or in conjunction with the printed book collection to engage young readers, provide interactive play, and enhance fine motor skills.

"This new app contains all the Fun with a Purpose™ kids and families have come to expect from Highlights for Children -- from puzzles and activities to poems and stories to read," says Christine French Cully, editor in chief. "Not only is it a perfect digital companion to the All About book -- extending a child's experience and deepening their learning and creativity -- but it also stands on its own as a highly engaging interactive experience."

The All About app has 12 themed digital editions, each focusing on a different kid-friendly topic such as All About Summer, All About Music & Dance, and All About Camping. Perfect for children ages 4+, each edition features:

  • Audio stories with the option to record your own narration
  • Record-your-own videos to send to family and friends
  • My First Hidden Pictures™ puzzles, a just-right challenge for younger kids
  • Virtual stickers to collect when you complete games and puzzles

The 4-book All About Seasons set is available exclusively at www.Highlights.com for $19.98. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall books contain Brain Play questions, stories and poems, Hidden Pictures® puzzles, games, mazes and other activities. Highlights All About will be available for smartphones soon.
