GoBook is a grown-up gadget, for young readers. Its designed to be child friendly and straightforward to use, but it doesn’t look like a toy.

The Goook Imagine has a ‘resTouch’ touchscreen that makes using it really straightforward. Its perfect for kids because when you see something you want you ‘Touch and Go’ straight to it. When you turn a page GoBook even has a realistic page turn effect so theres still the association with a printed book.

The display is vibrant and colourful to make the most of colourful, animated ebooks. GoBook is great to read at bedtime because its LED backlit screen is its own light source, meaning the GoBook doesnt rely on ambient light like many eInk eReaders.
