What's New in Version 1.1
• Enhanced sound effects and narration.
• Addition of a "read it again!" feature to go straight from the end of the book to the beginning with a single finger swipe.
Help For Those Few Having Trouble Opening The Book...
...just swipe your finger from right to left on the book's cover (just like opening a real book). Tapping isn't enough (and come to think of it, it won't work on a real book either!)
Although I'm older than the target audience for this book, I bought it to have some child friendly apps on my iPod touch. That being said, I've gone through the whole book several times myself and enjoyed it!
Pushing an "ABC" button on each page activates narration about alphabet letters and animals and pushing a button with a little gas cloud on it activates the sound of burps and a lot more. For instance the bee's burp is set to "Flight of the Bumblebee," and when the porcupine burps you can hear his quills shooting in all directions.
The rhymes are funny (reminding me a little of Ogden Nash, who most people are probably too young to remember), and the pictures are worthy of being in a full-size print book. All in all, very well done!
Great book for boys!
My son (and his dad) love the AlphaBelch book. Boys love burps, and this book is funny and has great sound effects. It also has a good lesson at the end about always saying "Excuse me" after you burp.
This will have your kids giggling up a storm!
So much fun to read with my toddler grandson. Perfect example of how learning and laughter can work beautifully together!
