How could I not know about Tales2Go before now? Oh, yeah, no i-gadgets. Until a few months ago when I unofficially adopted my husband’s new iPad for my own so I could get Tales2Go.
Tales2Go is perfect for book-loving families like us — it’s practically a million (or 1,500) audio books for your iPad (or any other i-things.) Books such as classics, folktales, fairy tales, myths, and kids’ favorite book series and characters like American Girl, Clifford, Clementine, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Henry and Mudge, Ivy and Bean, Judy Moody, Goosebumps, Junie B. Jones, Rainbow Magic, and now, the effervescent, Mrs. P. and her stories!
Yes, all the stories from Mrs. P’s award-winning children’s storybook website are now on Tales2Go’s growing library of audio stories. Big news!!
Oh, and the audio stories can be played on your i-device itself or via a docking station, capsule speaker, the AUX channel of a car stereo, or use your ear buds.
“Kids seem to love the classic stories I stream on my free website, but a lot of fans have asked how they can take Mrs. P with them wherever they go,” said TV star Kathy Kinney, who portrays Mrs. P. “That’s why partnering with Tales2Go is such a natural for us.”
William Weil, co-founder and CEO of Tales2Go says, “The benefits of listening to audio stories include an improved vocabulary and enhanced critical listening and comprehension skills – for readers at all levels.”
Tales2Go is available in the Apple App Store in the Education category (North America). A subscription to the entire library of stories is $99 for an entire year, or $29.99 for 3 months, or $12.99 for one month.

Since Tales2Go is even better because Mrs. P. is joining the Tales2Go library, I just knew you’d want to have these stories for your summer reading on the go adventures.
Mrs. P. is made up of Hollywood team Clay Graham, Kathy Kinney and Dana Plautz who want to expose young people to great books and stories through a celebrity storyteller. The Mrs. P. website isn’t only stories but also on-line games and writing contests. Visit the Mrs. P. Magic Library and see for yourself.
I’m just so impressed with the library of books! And so are AJ and JJ – who have are the real true owners of the iPad that Jeff and I will never see again. But, it’s all for books so it’s okay! I love it and think you will too.
WIN a 3-month subscription to Tales2Go — a great way to listen to Mrs. P on-the-go this summer and all the stories in the Tales2Go library.
