    A New Day

    February 12th, 2013

    A New Day cover imageGEbA_Gold_WebThis free eBook enables you to share the day’s activities with your child. The story makes the ordinary daily routine extraordinary by using dynamic and interactive illustrations. The illustrations spark interest in general concepts of daily life.

    The dynamic illustrations highlight that the world around us changes every minute of every day. The moon shows the correct phase. Calendars display the correct date. Clocks display the correct time. And, the compass and calculator work.

    The interactive illustrations demonstrate colors, numbers, shapes, sports, dates, and time. The story also exposes young readers to more complex concepts related to Science and Technology such as: the phase of the moon, compasses, telescopes, calculators, and dimensions of basic shapes. In addition, the story touches upon the concept of feelings, and provides audio examples of several foreign languages.

    Discover A New Day, everyday, with a child in your life.

    The free eBook is available in Apple’s iBookstore.

    Refer to the About A New Day pages at the end of the book for more information on the many features contained in the book. To experience all the book has to offer, it must be read multiple times every day.

    The book takes advantage of some of the features available in ePub version 3, such as scripting, SVG graphics, pop-up note references, and embedded audio. The eBook cover was inspired by beautiful Santa Barbara, home of the Global eBook Awards.

    I Love to Doodle

    February 11th, 2013

    I Love to DoodleGEbA_Silver_WebThis free eBook demonstrates one of life’s most popular pastimes, doodling.

    Unlike other doodle books, this book not only shows how to draw the doodle, but also shows how to create it using vector graphics without costly software.

    It is a fun activity for 4K-5th grade students learning to draw free hand and 8-12th grade students learning to draw using vector graphics. It is presented for those who like art, math, and/or computers.

    The short book shows the artistry in math and the math in artistry.  See how a teenager and her grandfather have different approaches for their doodles. This deceptively simple book provides a step by step guide to one teenager’s favorite doodles, free-hand or using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).

    See the SVG Doodles online at: Then view the source, same way you’d view the HTML of a webpage.

    The free eBook is available in Apple’s iBookstore.

    No iPad? No problem. The eBook is a free download from Catto Creations website:

    It can be read on a computer using the AZARDI desktop eReader (free for personal use).  Download it at:
