Parenting Product Pick: StorySticker, Customized Children’s Audio Book Technology

Ann Arbor, MI based software company, stkr.it, LLC, recently launched its new StorySticker product line at BookExpo America in New York on May 30th at the Jacob Javits Center. StorySticker is the next generation of children’s audio book technology that enables anyone to story-sticker-thumbcreate their own personal children’s audio book for the little ones in their life.

“The joy of reading a physical book with a child is universal,” said Mike Newman, President of stkr.it, LLC. “StorySticker creates that joy for out of town grandparents and traveling parents – anytime, anywhere. With StorySticker, any children’s book can become a personal audio book.”

StorySticker makes recording any children’s book simple, easy and fun. The StorySticker audio book works through the combination of a free mobile app (available for Android, iPhone and iPad) or the StorySticker website and a unique coded sticker that attaches to the inside of any children’s book. Any adult who wants to record themselves reading a children’s book can purchase the stickers at a retail bookseller and follow the fun and easy prompts in the app to record an audio book. The recording is forever linked with their StorySticker which is then placed in the book itself. The personal audio book is played back by scanning the StorySticker code or selecting the book from your app library – and the child simply listens and follows along!

StorySticker recordings are saved for a lifetime, turning the book into a family keepsake. “The response and participation we’ve had from parents, grandparents, retailers – and children – during the development of StorySticker has been overwhelming,” Mike Newman added. “Reading real, physical books to children is so important to parents and we’ve created a product that keeps the focus on the physical book, not the digital screen.”

StorySticker will be available at retail booksellers and gift stores across the US and Canada this summer. If you would like a sample please email: scott.evans@stkr.it
