Sweet Pickles Twitter Party and iPad Giveaway

I have been a fan of Sweet Pickles books for as long as I can remember. I grew up reading about the adventures of the alphabetical animals that lived in the town of Sweet Pickles, and my children have grown up exploring the books my mom saved for her future grandchildren. While they’ve been able to read the books from my childhood, seeing where I wrote my name on the inside cover, but I’ve always wished that the Sweet Pickles books would return.

I have exciting news… The 26 award-winning Sweet Pickles books are now available as interactive read-a-longs so kids of a whole new generation can discover the fun and heartwarming values of the town of Sweet Pickles!

The Sweet Pickles series has been digitally remastered by Bentobox Interactive with visual and audio effects that create an entertaining and educational reading tool for parents and children. Children can read along with the books independently or be accompanied by professionally recorded narration and voice-over by award-winning actors.

Sweet Pickles, one of the most successful juvenile literary properties ever, was created in 1977 by Jaquelyn Reinach, Richard Hefter and Ruth Lerner Perle and sold more than 50 million copies!
