Our Team Is Our Story!

Interactive Touch Books was founded by two dads who tinkered with technology by day and read Goodnight Moon by night. Their toddlers fussed and the dads surrendered their iPads to the cradle. At first, they were amazed by their kids’ agility with the device, but soon realized that the tablet was more intuitive to a two-year old than a bottle. But their grand discovery was soon hampered by the lack of age-appropriate apps and quality content. Recognizing a need in the market, they set about to solve this problem for fellow frustrated parents, and their brainchild became Interactive Touch, a platform to develop high quality interactive media for mobile devices and and iphone/ipad app to connect talented authors and illustrators with their readers. And now, with nearly 100 professional authors, illustrators, and publishers in our network, Interactive Touch is constantly publishing lots of great books and games.
