JibJab Lets Your Kid Star In eBook App

Barnes & Noble has tools for kids to make their own book apps, but now kids can star in their own book apps thanks to a new offering from a company called JibJab Jr. Books.

JibJab, which is better known for helping OfficeMax make its popular ‘ElfYourself’ campaign – a viral effort that lets people turn photos of themselves into animated elves– has launched a series of children’s book apps for the iPad that let parents add a photo of their child to the app to star in the story.

The company launches with two titles — The Biggest Pizza Ever about a kid who runs wild in a town with an overgrown pizza and The Alphabet Wrangler about a kid who chases the letters of the alphabet around the house. The company will release new titles every month, including an underwater adventure called Ocean Commotion, which comes out this month.
