Kids get to hear four different stories (Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer) about three silly red birds named Chirp, Tweet, and Squawk. Every page of the story paints itself right before their eyes, inspiring them to create their own art. Plus, to help kids learn to read, each word appears on the screen as it is read aloud by a super cute kid narrator. A group of kids also makes fun comments during the stories, highlighting challenging vocabulary words. You can turn the narration and music on or off as you like, and a handy bookmark feature allows kids to jump straight to their favorite pages instantly.
After reading the story and playing the games, kids (and adults too) will enjoy going behind the scenes to see illustrator, Nicole Allin, hard at work. See Nicole’s painting process in action, and read how she brings the red birds to life.
After watching the illustrative process in action, kids then get to be the artist and color every single page for themselves. The coloring feature sparks their creativity and enables them to color all 40 pages from the stories. It also comes with a unique rainbow button that switches colors automatically as they draw.
Kids will love matching pairs of pictures from the storybooks. The 6-level matching game starts off with 6 memorable images to match, then moves on to 8, 10, 12, 18, and 24 images to match. This matching game is a great and fun way to develop a child’s memory skills.
This app supports Spanish translations of all five books. To expose kids to a second language, simply switch the language settings on your device:
Unique and clever app!!
Wow what a clever app!!! Each story brought a laugh out loud reaction on my first read. As an elementary librarian I have read a multitude of childrens books. This is a unique app that I highly recommend. I especially like the illustrator book that is included for it gives a great demonstration of illustrating a book. My kindergarten class was all smiles as we read two of the four stories.
My Kiddos Love It!!
I have a four year old boy and two year old girl; they BOTH enjoy the FOUR stories that come with this APP. They are mesmerized as they watch the page come to life with color. As a teacher I enjoy the sophisticated vocabulary words seamlessly woven through the stories.
This book is so sweet. The voices are appealing for young children and it introduces them to many difficult vocabulary words. It is quite interesting to watch the illustrator's development of the birds. Four books, coloring pages, and a game make this a fabulous buy!!!!
