AlphaBELCH – Kids eBook is Funny, Noisy A-to-Z of Burping Animals

By on Nov 22, 2010 at 1:14 am

Plano, Texas – Just in time for the holidays, AlphaBELCH is the first original eBook by Stephen White, a million-selling children’s author and key writer behind the hugely successful “Barney & Friends”(TM) franchise. Designed for iPhone and iPad, AlphaBELCH is a comic A-to-Z listing of animals who burp, leading to a parent-pleasing lesson about good manners. Pages feature user-activated narration and giggle-inducing cartoon sound effects. AlphaBELCH has an introductory price of 99 cents at the iTunes App Store.

“It may seem odd to go from Barney(TM) to burping,” admits White, conceding that no gas was passed in any of the dozens of television episodes, home videos, and children’s books that he authored for the purple dinosaur. “But kids love to laugh, and there’s no better way to help them learn manners than by giving them lessons that are actually fun.”

Stephen White has been actively involved in edutainment for the very young for over two decades. AlphaBELCH is his first independently produced eBook for kids, and features not only White’s witty rhymes (including playful verses like “U is for Unicorn burps that are smell-free, V is for Vampire Bats in a belfry”), but also his narration and sound design. Illustrations are by Tony Neal, who White chose specifically because “His pictures made me laugh!”
