Our Thanks to the Amazing David Eckstein!
Welcome to Jumping Pages! We are proud to announce that our first titles — David & Goliath and David & Goliath: The MVP Edition are now available on the App Store for iPad. David & Goliath: The MVP Edition is narrated by 2006 World Series Most Valuable Player David Eckstein, a modern day David who overcame the odds to achieve glory!
The David & Goliath Apps are filled with animation, interactive components and an original musical score that will bring to life David and Goliath’s epic battle. Young readers are able to immerse themselves in the story through dozens of activities, including catapulting burning weapons, defeating a lion and a bear, taking aim at Goliath and joyfully tossing David in the air after his victory.
The MVP Edition celebrates the five year anniversary of David Eckstein’s inspirational performance in the 2006 World Series and concludes with a short, narrated afterword by the actress, Star Wars Clone Wars star and David’s wife, Ashley Eckstein, about the similarities between the story’s David and his belief in overcoming the odds and her husband’s unlikely journey to baseball stardom.
We want to extend our appreciation to the Ecksteins for their help on the project. Their graciousness is reflected in their willingness to donate 10% of sales from the MVP Edition to several non-profit organizations they support, including Bags of Hope of Central Florida’s Feed and Read program for children.
We hope that kids, and their Moms and Dads, will find these apps to be an enjoyable and meaningful experience!
