MIKO Wants a Dog is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn. The app is based on Brigitte Weninger, Stephanie Roehe’s book by the same name, illustrated by Stephanie Roehe. It is the fifth book app of the famous Miko series.
Miko wants a pet dog more than anything. His friend Mimiki will pretend to be a dog for a little while, but he won’t go on a leash. No doubt about it—Miko needs a real dog. But Mama says Miko will have to wait until he’s older. He’s so disappointed, until he hears barking from the next door neighbor’s yard, and Miko gets the chance to prove how good he can be with a dog.
This cute story is perfect for family pet discussions, and also demonstrates the power of compromise.
Key features include
Personalization of voice and text:
★ Kids can become their own narrator or listen to their parents narrate the book.
★ Interactivity allows kids to personalize the sentence, create new action words and sharpen their vocabulary skills
Three ways to read the book
★ "Read to me" - Listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects till they are ready to move to the next page.
★ "Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud.
★ "Auto Play" - same as "Read to Me" except the page advances automatically once the narration is finished. Useful for those long car rides when you want the child to have a complete book experience.
All three ways of reading can be played in your own voice with personalized sentences.
Features on each page

★ Image and word association vocabulary builder - when an image is touched the associated word is spoken and the written word displayed.
★ Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted.
