Caillou: What's That Funny Noise? - interactive story for preschool kids

Follow Caillou and his parents while they try to put Caillou to bed. Caillou hears funny noises and can’t fall asleep. That’s when the action starts! Mommy and Daddy are always around to help Caillou and show him what the funny noises and shadows really are. Find out if Caillou (and family!) actually get a good night sleep.

Based on the hit PBS KIDS TV series, this animated story is part of our iRead With shared-reading program designed to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.

iRead With animated stories are designed to make children talk and participate in the shared reading activity. Parents follow a prompting system that encourages them to start a conversation with the child, by asking questions about the story. Children become actively involved in the narrative and get stimulated in a multi-sensory level.

“(…) We have tried many eBooks for our kids and nothing has quite grabbed their attention like iRead With Interactive eBooks. Theater mode (…) makes iRead With Interactive stand out. Kids can create their own Caillou stories by dragging images from the bottom into scenes from the story. Then you can narrate it and record it! How cool is that?” - Mom and More

“There are so many amazing features to these “iRead With” apps, I just don’t know where to start! This app is simply outstanding on so many levels. I have read this several times to my boys and they are asking for it every night and it is fun for all of us. I am excited about this new line of ebooks and the method behind them.” - The iPhone Mom

“I think this series is a very useful reminder of the importance of making reading with your child a 2-way communication, and it actively encourages parents to interact with their children when reading. Many parents already do this, but for those who don’t, or who need some more practice in developing questions, it provides a useful framework for developing this skill.” - The iMums

“The iRead With apps belong to the most interesting new kids app releases of this year. The “Read & Talk” mode is particularly remarkable, as it has been especially designed to be a shared reading activity where parents/grandparents are invited to read together. 5 STARS” - Top Best Apps For Kids

“We have been playing with Caillou: What’s That Funny Noise? for a little while and my 3-year-old thinks this app is really cool. We read through the story and answered the prompts. He really enjoyed reading the story but his favorite part of the iRead With ebook is the retell feature. It is so cute to listen to him retell the story or make up new ones using the characters.” - A Mom’s Take

“For my younger daughter having characters that she is familiar with and likes is as important as the story in many cases. (She) was enthralled with all the little interactive features of the story. What she particularly enjoyed though was Story Theatre. While in Story Theater she could take scenes from the book, as well as the characters and record her own story.” - Nugglemama’s Handful

“I’ve been using it with both boys. Charlie loves the interactive part of the book, touching the window or the light. I can read the book to him in English, and talk to him about what’s happening. For Zacharie, who is learning to read in both languages, it’s a chance to have the same story in French and English.” - Dadcamp
