Families who love the activity-based video-calling app Caribu will be excited to hear that they have teamed up with DC, one of the largest publishers of comics and graphic novels in the world. Caribou is expanding the app’s content to a broader audience including kids ages 8 through 12 with the addition of 77 kid-friendly titles. Through interactive reading and video-calling, Caribu is helping kids to stay connected, educated and engaged from a distance with free content for new users all summer.
Caribu users can now access a variety of DC kids titles from popular comics series like DC Super Hero Girls, Teen Titans Go!, Scooby-Doo and Looney Tunes. The app also features free previews of DC’s acclaimed middle grade graphic novels, including sneak peeks at Shannon and Dean Hale’s Diana: Princess of the Amazons illustrated by Victoria Ying, Meg Cabot’s Black Canary: Ignite illustrated by Cara McGee, Ridley Pearson’s Super Sons trilogy illustrated by Ile Gonzalez, and additional works by Minh Lê, Kirk Scroggs and many more.
To engage the younger crowd in the comic book conversation this summer, Caribu has deemed Jul. 20 to Jul. 26 Superhero week in their Virtual Summer Reading program, Caribu will highlight a selection of titles from the DC universe for users to read with daily prompts and activities they can use to engage in a more immersive way with the content.
“We pride ourselves in offering a variety of content for a wide range of ages and interests on Caribu,” said Maxeme Tuchman, CEO and CO-Founder at Caribu. “Partnering with DC allows us to meet the needs of older kids who want to have virtual playdates with family and friends so they too can stay entertained and engaged this summer.”
Caribu also recently announced #CampCaribu! 100 Days of Summer Reading Camp, a dynamic summer reading program that you can do together with family and friends in an interactive video-call. All Caribu books and activities are interactive during calls, allowing both parties to turn the page, draw together in real-time, and point to words so kids can follow along.
