My Pet is Gone Comforts Children After the Loss of a Beloved Pet.
Washington, DC, February 06, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - Washington, DC—Bookata LLC, the leading publisher of interactive, personalized children’s books, has announced the launch of the second title in its pet care collection. Following A New Pet in the Family, Bookata addresses the end of the life cycle in My Pet is Gone. With this new addition, Bookata’s collection covers the full range of family-child-pet dynamics, introducing elements from the child’s environment to create unique, personalized books. Young children cannot always grasp abstract concepts, and more often than not, the passing of a pet is their first encounter with death. It is difficult for them to accept the idea that their wonderful friend has disappeared forever. But what if the pet’s soul can return in the form of another animal? Will it be a wild or domestic? Majestic or funny?
Aimed at readers ages five through ten, Bookata’s books allow children and their parents to make changes to the content, from illustrations to text, in just a few minutes. “Because our stories are meant to be a reflection of the child’s complex environment, the reader can choose from hundreds of drawings offered by our illustrators and can adapt the text accordingly,” says Stefan Maier, the company’s CTO. “If that’s not enough, the reader can upload their own text and illustrations.”But this is just the beginning. Bookata goes where no other interactive platform has ever dared to go. Our creators have committed themselves to a new paradigm-shifting form of storytelling and user-generated content: If readers want to go beyond the basic personalization choices, they can ask for deeper changes, like the addition of an illustration, or an alteration of the ending. The company offers a frictionless marketplace for live story modification.
