Fathers don’t express their love as mothers do. Yet, we can’t deny how important their role is in every child’s life. They are the first role model, first friend, first guardian, and many more firsts to every kid. Celebrate this day with your dad and don’t forget to express how much you love them!
While thinking how we could make this day more special for kids, we realized….It’s so much Fun when Daddy reads stories to the kids, isn’t it? So we thought, why not give our app for Free! Honestly, we don’t want you to spend on buying a book app today, when you can spend on buying something special for Daddy dear
So that’s it!! Read, Celebrate and Learn all together, while Daddy makes Edsel McFarlan’s New Car and Cyrano the Crow interesting and fun! Avail these apps for FREE, but only inside “Auracle“- the reader app by Auryn on iPad, Android and Nabi. For free download: http://auryn.tv/reader
Happy reading with Daddy!

How do apps fit into libraries? The swell folks at Auryn provided me with app codes to give to librarians to test. (I still have one left, email me!) Thank you to Katie Bruce for our first review. I hope it helps and please join in on this important conversation that will only continue to become more significant to our profession.
