IBW Books: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis Interactive Book-Webscene (IBW) Books will help to foster a love of reading in my preschooler.

materials One book entitled, “Where can lost bee be?” from IBW Books and my “eager to read” preschooler.  About IBW Books:

The Interactive Book-Webscene proprietary process combines the reading of a print book with the interactivity of online animations. Here’s how it works: At the end of each chapter, the reader is directed to a specific link on a website associated with the book. Here, the reader views a webscene. Webscenes contain 2D and 3D animations. Each webscene is essential to the storytelling. After viewing the webscene, the reader returns to the book to read another chapter, after which are instructions to view another webscene, and so on. Each book contains 6-10 webscenes.

methods Lily is able to recognize all of the letters of the alphabet and knows all of the letter sounds well.  She is about to enter Pre-K this August, so she is not quite reading, but she is very good with a few sight words such as “yes”, “no”, and “open.”   I sat down with the KA Reader from IBW Books and read the first chapter to Lily.  Following the first chapter, we went online to view the webscene which made the book come to life and reinforced the vocabulary and concepts of the book.  We completed the book in about 20 minutes.


My husband (who is a teacher) set out to find books to help keep the skills Lily learned last year in school fresh in her mind.  We are so happy to have found IBW Books because Lily loved it!  She was eager to have me read the next chapter so we could view the corresponding webscene.  While the webscenes were in itself educational, Lily viewed them as a special “treat” for completing another chapter.  I think IBW Books certainly acheived making reading fun!


IBW Books offers several titles in many different educational levels beginning with preschool. Each series has different features. For instance, each book in the beginning reader series, KA Reader, includes English and Spanish text, webscenes, story theme, word count, reading grade level and word pattern families.  If you are intrigued by the concept, please visit IBW Booksellers to learn how to sell these books in your community while earning extra money for your family.  Sellers receive an immediate 20% commission on all sales!
