App Of The Day: JibJab Jr. Books – Amazing Kids Books Using Your Own Pictures

When I was a kid, my parents bought me a few books that were special ordered to place my name in the book like it was specially made for me. JibJab Jr. Books allows you to completely customize the children’s story by adding your child’s name and photo. The story is then told with your son or daughter as the main character, and their face is included on every page. There’s no other kids book app like it on the App Store, and it’s a bit odd that the books come from JibJab, who is well known for their political animated cartoons.

JibJab Jr. Books comes with one book, The Biggest Pizza Ever, for free, and it’s an amusing rhyming story. It’s effortless to add your own photos from either the iPad 2 camera, or a photo album or Facebook for iPad 1 owners. Every page comes with your child’s face inserted on the cartoon body, and each image is animated. It’s great to see the app in motion, and there’s no doubt that children will love it and parents will too.

JibJab Jr. Books is free to download for iPad only, and comes with additional paid books. There are two books available now with The Alphabet Wrangler for August and Ocean Commotion for September. You can purchase each book individually for $7.99, or sign up for a renewing subscription for only $3.99 a month. Then you automatically get the new book each month for half the cost. It’s great that you get to try for free, and then have multiple purchasing options.

JibJab Jr. Books is a great addition to your app collection that you should definitely give a try for free.
