The Sparkup Magical Book Reader is a revolutionary device that clips directly on to any picture book, which it then reads aloud in a pre-recorded voice. (allowing you to record and share the reading experience). You can record the book yourself, in any language, and add your own personal touches; or download professionally recorded stories, complete with sound effects, directly from the Sparkup website.
While recording, Sparkup’s tiny camera takes a picture of the book’s front cover and each page. Later on, when a child connects Sparkup to the book, Sparkup immediately recognizes its front cover. Sparkup follows the child’s pace and reads aloud as he or she turns the pages – even out of order. 3 Easy Steps
