Jumping Pages, Inc., a new children's interactive book app company, is proud to announce their first titles -- David & Goliath and David & Goliath: The MVP Edition -- are now available on the App Store for iPad. David & Goliath: The MVP Edition is narrated by 2006 World Series Most Valuable Player David Eckstein.
The David & Goliath Apps are filled with animation, interactive components and an original musical score that will bring to life David and Goliath's epic battle.
Young readers are able to immerse themselves in the story through dozens of activities, including catapulting burning weapons, defeating a lion and a bear. This company launches With a World Series Hero taking aim at Goliath and joyfully tossing David in the air after his victory.
The MVP Edition celebrates the five year anniversary of David Eckstein's inspirational performance in the 2006 World Series and concludes with a short, narrated afterword by the actress, Star Wars Clone Wars star and David's wife, Ashley Eckstein.
It focuses on similarities between the story's David and his belief in overcoming the odds and her husband's unlikely journey to baseball stardom.
"We wanted to tell this legendary tale to children in a way that it has never been told before," said Rania Ajami, founder of Jumping Pages. "We've created a visually stunning and interactive world for the young reader; further, the MVP Edition, narrated by David Eckstein, will surely appeal to the baseball-loving fathers and sons out there.
"It was a thrill for Ashley and I to participate in this groundbreaking project," explained Eckstein.
"The story of David and Goliath holds special meaning to both of us, and we hope that through our involvement others will be inspired to face life's challenges, or Goliaths, with perseverance and determination despite the odds."
The David & Goliath and David & Goliath: The MVP Edition Apps are available at the iTunes Store. Ten percent of the MVP Edition's proceeds will be donated by the Ecksteins to several non-profit organizations they support, including Bags of Hope of Central Florida's Feed and Read program for children.
