Disney Digital Books launches
Disney Digital Books has been launched, a vast library that is Disney’s first-ever collection of digital children’s books – and the browser-based service is PC- and Mac-compatible, and does not require downloads.

The new portal is the brainchild of a team of young, tech-savvy, creative folks at Disney Publishing Worldwide. The company is the world's largest publisher of children's books and magazines, and has been around since 1930.

Over 500 Disney picture and storybooks will come to life with animated illustrations and character voices. Classics include more than 60 Winnie the Pooh books and such popular titles as Mickey Mouse, Toy Story, Disney Princess, Cars, and Hannah Montana.

Key features include an age-appropriate dictionary that lets children click on any word to hear it read aloud; reading certificates to encourage readers; and a “Story-Builder” feature so kids can create their own stories;

Books are separated into three reading levels: (1) for beginner readers and a companion, (2) for independent readers, and (3) for readers ready for chapter books;

Monthly subscriptions are US$8.95 – and annual and gift subscriptions are available as well. A free trial of the service is available from today.
