Many people ask me what it means to publish a book as an app. When I made the decision to turn my son’s life adventures growing up on the spectrum as a series of children’s stories, I chose storybook app over printed book. For me it was an easy decision because it allowed Jonathan the opportunity to use his talents as a voice actor to do the narration. That adds an authenticity and heart that is connecting with our readers and making a positive impact on the way autistic individuals are viewed.
If you’ve been curious about how children’s book apps are made and maybe even considering making one of your own, then “What is a Book App and Could YOU Create One?” is a must-read.
