Speakaboos Takes Reading to the Skies with Delta Studio

Educational Speakaboos Stories to be Part of Delta’s In-Flight Entertainment

NEW YORK, NY – May 3, 2016 – Speakaboos, the educational technology company that promotes learning through interactive media for children, is turning travel time into reading time with Delta Air Lines. The collaboration includes Speakaboos content on Delta StudioTM, Delta’s in-flight entertainment platform. Hours of Speakaboos animated stories are now available to Delta Air Lines travelers. Designed to engage children in reading through animation and word highlighting, kids can enjoy Speakaboos stories while supporting literacy skills such as comprehension and vocabulary development.

“Speakaboos is thrilled to bring our award-winning content onboard Delta Studio and inspire a love of reading in millions of young travelers,” said Noelle Millholt, COO and co-founder, Speakaboos. “Families across the country have chosen the Speakaboos app for on-the-go reading and our inclusion in Delta’s in-flight entertainment is another great way to keep kids engaged during long trips and transform screen time into reading time.”

Passengers can choose from story collections organized by children’s favorite characters and topics including “Travel,” “Princesses,” “Dinosaurs,” “Classics,” “Favorite Songs,” and a bundle dedicated entirely to “Sid the Science Kid.” The selection of story collections will rotate throughout the year, offering a wide variety of new stories to young travelers.

Families can bring the reading home with Speakaboos by visiting www.speakaboos.com or downloading the Speakaboos app to access its full library of over 200 interactive stories for iOS through the App Store or for Android through Google Play.
