Writer and teacher Jim Cullinane blends original stories, sounds, music, media and mild mayhem together into interactive GoodieBooks – making exciting new ways to entertain and engage children in reading, learning and technology.
GoodieBooks are written specifically for a digital medium, built around strong stories, colourful characters, lively language and singalong songs with relevant interactive features to extend and enhance the text rather than distract children from the story.
Jim often uses GoodieBooks in class as a refreshing change from the usual reading material. Put up on the big screen, the stories are fun to read together and they also teach digital literacy skills that children can bring to their own storytelling, either in the classroom or home. Like all good eBooks, they complement rather than compete with paper books.
Our latest GoodieBook is “Farmer Bump is a Terrible Grump”.
It’s written by Jim Cullinane and illustrated by the wonderfully talented Susie McKinstry.
