Things That Make You Go Vroom is James' first interactive children’s book. He originally wrote the book in 2006 and was going to publish it as a board book.  Waiting ten years proved to be worth it as technology advances have allowed him to bring the book to life for children around the world.

“I think one of the keys to learning is drawing comparisons between the things we understand and new ideas or concepts.  The “analogy” is such a powerful tool and being able to incorporate fun illustrations and interactions makes learning come to life. That is what Things That Make You Go Vroom is all about, having fun with learning.”

Chuck, did you know the things that make a car go vroom are just like the things that make you go vroom? 

Things That Make You Go Vroom Interactive Edition is full of over 100 interactive animations, fun sounds and has a read along option! It is available from the Apple iBooks' store only.
