article imageDigital children's series 'Milli' teaches curiosity, positivity

In collaboration with a British author and German illustrator, production company Honig Studios wants to create a brand new experience for young children and how they read storybooks on tablet devices.
In this interactive series of children's books, kids read about the whimsical adventures of a "very small and very curious young snail who lives far, far away" called Milli. She lives in a place named Apple-Tree Hill that is said to be magical. This is a story written by M. Sean Coleman, a British writer in collaboration with Honig Studios, a production studio with clients that want to create new experiences through technology such as web videos and apps. The idea behind Milli is to have a brand new way for children to experience stories on electronic devices.
"'Milli – very little, big adventures on Apple Tree Hill'" is a series of interactive stories and games for children from 3-6 years old for Android tablets [and] the iPad," says the Kickstarter page. The moral behind the stories is to promote curiosity, positivity, and being able to work together with others.

Instead of static stories and pages found in a traditional storybook, Milli challenges young readers to be curious and ask questions. Each story takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to complete and includes interactive features such as tilting the tablet or blowing on the microphone to move objects on the screen as well as including in-app mini games for the child to complete.
The Kickstarter is currently looking to raise £14,000, which will be used to compose original music, add in sound design, and tweak animations. The first story in the series is already completed and ideally Honig Studios is looking to release the first of Milli's adventures in July 2014.
