I Love You Too - Ziggy Marley

June 5, 2014

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

Ziggy Marley's classic picture book comes to the tablet ...

Based on a print title, also published this year, I Love You Too, is a digital book by Ziggy Marley. It is based on Marley's 2009 song by the same name, featuring the power of love between a parent and child. According to Ziggy:

"One day I was in my kitchen making breakfast with my then three-year-old daughter Judah. She looked at me and said, 'I love you.' I spontaneously replied to her, 'I love you too.' From that came the song and now the book based on the lyrics. I hope you share and enjoy this with your loved ones as I have with mine."

This powerful and well-loved song makes a beautiful story, accompanied by color-drenched illustrations from Ag Jatkowska. The digital platform is from Oceanhouse Media's OM Book template. Readers see the original print images, paced nicely with the text as the app pans over them in a semi-animated style.

Extra features include the ability to record your own narration as well as excellent navigation with a nice visual thumbnail page guide. Ample settings allow adults to set the book up with or without audio and interactive elements. Links that leave the app are contained exclusively in the 'info' section under a parental gate that requires fluid reading and following complex directions.

Overall, this is a must-download title for any digital children's library. Featuring a heartwarming conversation between loved ones, I Love You Too is a storybook app worthy of reading over and over. There is even a 'sing along' option included, to hear the whole book sung by the author himself - a rare treat for the digital generation.

Highly Recommended!
