LINCOLNWOOD, Ill., April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Publications International, Ltd. (PIL) has added three best-loved Bible stories to its growing roster of Barnes & Noble NOOK Kids e-books. Written and illustrated expressly for children, David and Goliath: Finding Strength, Jonah and the Whale: Listening to God, and Noah's Ark: Keeping a Promise provide a wonderful, interactive way to introduce young readers to foundational stories of faith, service, and hope.

These books are available now in the Kids' Books section of the Barnes & Noble NOOK Book Store. Priced at just $0.99 each, they're a great value.

Sixty-two percent of children ages two through ten now have access to a multipurpose tablet or e-reader, according to a January 2014 study from the Joan Ganz Cooney Center, which calls for the development of more mobile content for children that is both educational and entertaining.

"We know how important it is to tell Bible stories in language that appeals to little ones," says Louis Weber, PIL's CEO and President. "And we're long-time leaders in finding ways to help readers connect with the stories they're reading." PIL's printed "sound books" feature built-in audio buttons that enhance story time with music, sound, and spoken word – so going from book to NOOK is a natural fit.

Carefully crafted from PIL's best-selling Story Reader® books, these new NOOK titles feature heartwarming narration, original illustrations, and professionally composed musical accents and sound effects that set them apart from more typical offerings.

Other NOOK Books available from PIL include Rainbow Kittens, Sweet Dream Kisses, and Ten Tiny Puppies.
