Fiber arts, following directions, and FUN!
This storybook app easily engages young learners with eye-catching fabric animals, a simple storyline, and fun sound and sight reinforcers on every "page." As an SLP, Billy's Coin can be used to target listening comprehension, following directions, rhyme identification, animal vocab, spatial concepts, and more! This was a great addition to my therapy toolkit and also a fun app for my own kids to play at home. Keep them coming, Spinlight!
My two year old loves this story game! He gets excited for the last page when the surprise animal comes out of the ball. I like the sound options of choosing between a male and female storyteller and to also mute the story so you can read along with your child. We have loved all the Spinlight games! Can't wait to see what comes next!
My 3-year-old loves this book. It is beautifully paced, thoughtfully told, and immensely creative for young, curious minds. Just enough interaction to engage young readers without overwhelming or frustrating them. Best in class.
