“OOPS…” Blue Hat, Green Hat, Sandra Boynton’s famous and funny book, comes alive with sound and zestily ingenious interactivity. This wonderfully clever digital book app will surprise kids and grownups alike. Turkeys may also enjoy it, if they can ever figure out how to turn the dang thing on.
Three earnest animals and one misguided turkey learn colors and clothes. Though admittedly, the turkey never quite gets the hang of it.
“I have a particular fondness for Blue Hat, Green Hat,” says Sandra Boynton. “At age three, my son Devin had a surprisingly hearty laugh for a small person—a laugh that would make everyone else laugh. I created this book long ago specifically to elicit that belly-laugh from him. It was great fun to re-invent this book as an interactive e-book app, collaborating again with my endlessly clever Loud Crow friends. The digital dimension gave us so many terrific opportunities for adding theatrical flair to this spare yet decidedly Vaudeville book.”
Far beyond any e-book experience, the Blue Hat, Green Hat interactive book app has all the magic and appeal of a traditional pop-up book, offering lively interactivity and nifty discovery.
The third Sandra Boynton book app, all of them created in collaboration between Boynton Moo Media along with the award-winning developer Loud Crow Interactive. Blue Hat, Green Hat follows their wonderful top-selling debut, The Going To Bed Book app, and the glorious bestselling Moo, Baa, La La La! app
Touch the animals to prompt them to move and respond. Touch “OOPS” to cause a different surprise on each page. Tilt your device to watch things slide and cascade. Dress the turkey with colorful pop-in/pop-out clothes
Boynton has redrawn and recolored the original illustrations, and also added new touch-animations, for her enormously popular book, Blue Hat, Green Hat
Wonderful resonant and wry narration by British Invasion legend, Billy J. Kramer (acclaimed reader of The Going To Bed Book app) and sound by Boynton & Ford. Includes an original soundtrack, “William Mattel Overture,” a melody for toy crank-guitar, written by Sandra Boynton, performed by Michael Ford
Realistic page turning interactions just like the original board book
“The Big Guy Reads It” with word highlighting to help improve reading skills
Or “I want to read it myself” to hear individual words pronounced with the tap of a finger
What's New in Version 1.3
- Minor bug fixes and performance improvements
What every children's book app should be
My kids love to come and read through the interactive story. I think all kids books on the ipad should be like this. I only wish there was a way to set the screen differently, showing just one page on a larger screen setting for kids who can't see as easily. The page turning to all the cute animations make this book one of my kids favorite apps.
Great interactive book!
This book is even better than the normal hard copy because your child can touch each item on the page as it is read/described and it moves! Perfect for my 18 month daughter.
Love this book
This is one of my favorite boyton books. I love that is now with me at all times. The pages match the book, but with a few bonus interactive things. I like how he jumps in the water at the end.
