LINCOLNWOOD, Ill., April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Publications International, Ltd. (PIL) has released two of its best-loved "story to share" storybooks as Barnes & Noble NOOK Kids e-books, offering a new way for kids and parents or grandparents to enjoy heartwarming stories together, wherever they happen to be!

Guess How Much I Miss You: A Story to Share and I Love You So Much: A Story to Share are available now in the Kids' Books section of the Barnes & Noble NOOK Book Store, for just $0.99 each.

In Guess How Much I Miss You: A Story to Share, Big Bear must leave Little Bear for a while, but not before explaining how much Little Bear will be missed—and how happy their reunion will be. 

In I Love You So Much: A Story to Share, animal parents—penguin, fox, tiger, elephant, bear, koala, and deer—share all the sweet reasons they love their dear little ones.

Both books feature charming original illustrations and three options for storytelling: play the included professional narration with its accompanying musical accents and sound effects; turn off the narration and read the story on your own; or record a "special someone" reading the story, for playback anywhere, anytime.

"These books bring the cherished shared story-time experience to today's children, including those whose parents may work long hours or travel for business, or whose grandparents may live far away," says Louis Weber, PIL's CEO and president. PIL is a longtime leader in creating children's books that combine stories with sounds, music, and voice. The company's award-winning product lines include Story Reader® and Record a Story.

With 62 percent of children ages two through ten having access to a multipurpose tablet or e-reader, staying connected with kids through technology is more important than ever, according to a January 2014 study from the Joan Ganz Cooney Center.
