4 year old LOVES Curious About Me
I have three kids (8,6,4) and my littlest is dying to read like the big kids! The Curious About Me app is a wonderful way to get the non readers and new readers like him to write their own story. And THEN the app reads the story back to them.
Curious George and the man with the yellow hat walk you and your child through a series of questions all about them. How much do kids like to talk about themselves, right? They get to draw pictures, take pictures and videos, record their voices, and use pictures available on the device they’re using. They can use all these mediums to tell their story.
My 4yo got such a kick out of hearing his own voice and seeing his pics and videos in the story with Curious George. He can’t wait to go back and rewrite his story and to create new ones.
Fun game... for a day or 2
My 4 year old had a blast with this game. The man in the yellow hat will ask your child various questions to which they will either have to record their voice, take a picture, choose an image (for instance, what they like to play with), draw a picture, etc. When their done, all of the data collected is put together in a story. It was addicting to my son for about a day and a half but he hasn't touched it since as I think the novelty wore off. I gave the app 4 stars though because it did get the job done in keeping him occupied enough for me to clean, which for me, he $3 was worth.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
