Reading Children’s Bedtime Stories with Moonlite

Today is World Book Day, a day to celebrate reading books and the joy they bring. Spin Master has created Moonlite. A storybook projector for your mobile phone. Moonlite is a new way to read and experience children’s bedtime stories. As Little E loves books and she also loves my iPhone I was interested to know what she would think of this new idea.

Reading Children’s Bedtime Stories to Little E With Moonlite

Little E absolutely loves the Moonlite storybook projector. Immediately taken with the projections. She loves spinning the story reels to change the images. She says that they are her favourite stories ever!

Together we read the stories. Little E picks out the words she knows and also presses the words that have the sound effects. She is also in control of changing the images for the story. Our bedtime stories have become a joint effort.

What Do I Love About The Moonlite Storybook Projector

The Moonlite was very easy to set up. Just download the app and follow the on-screen instructions. Each Moonlite product comes with an activation card. These details must be entered into the app to unlock your stories.

Being that the Moonlite uses the iPhone I thought the app would read the story for you. I thought we would just be holding the phone and looking at the projections. How wrong could I be?!

You are the one that reads the story and I think it makes the whole experience of reading children’s bedtime stories far more interactive. We have both really enjoyed introducing the Moonlite into our reading. It is making us talk more during this time and has added to the bonding that this special reading time brings.
