StoryMax is a publisher of app books – interactive digital books for tablets and smartphones – whose mission it is to make reading a more attractive and encompassing activity to children and young adults all over the world.
Our app books are literary classics, well edited and illustrated, animated, with audio and interactivity that make their reading a more engaging and immersive experience. We create complementary content for use in the classroom, with the objective of deepening discussion and extracting the best from the reading experience. For this reason, our books have already been adopted by hundreds of schools in the United States and in Brazil.
Founded in 2012 with the publication of the Frankie for Kids app book, StoryMax was under the name Y+B Digital Content for almost two years – a period during which it was awarded its first international prizes and took part in events around the world.
Through its participation in SEED – a seed accelerator and seed capital investment programme for startups in Minas Gerais – it has structured its business model and entered into important partnerships in order to bring reading as a form of leisure, learning and reflection to young readers of the 21st century.
