MeeGenius for Google Chrome

MeeGenius is a great website, Android app, and iPad app offering ebooks for kids. MeeGenius allows users to turn narration on and off for each book. When narration is turned on each word in the story is highlighted as it's read.

As mentioned above, MeeGenius is available for Android and iPad. This afternoon I discovered that MeeGenius is also available as a Chrome Web App. The MeeGenius Chrome Web App makes it easy to browse, read, and listen to the MeeGenius books in your browser.


Applications for Education
MeeGenius could be a great website and app for young students to use to experience some nice short stories and practice reading at the same time. MeeGenius is offering a free school and library subscription program but it's not clear how many ebooks are included in that free subscription.

MeeGenius - eBooks for Little Kids

MeeGenius is a nice source of free and paid ebooks for kids. There are lots of sites that offer the same thing as MeeGenius but MeeGenius distinguishes itself with one excellent feature. That feature is automatic word highlighting to accompany the narration of each book.

When children open the ebooks online, on an Android tablet, or on an iPad they can choose to have the story read to them or to read the story on their own. When the story is read to them each word in the story is highlighted on the page. This should help children follow along with the story.

I discovered MeeGenius on Twitter earlier this week. I didn't write down who I saw Tweet it, but I think it was Dean Shareski
