What an ingenious app! It's a work of art. Because there are no words, any parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or teacher -anywhere in the world - can tell this long-beloved story in their own time treasured way, in precisely the words their child has come to relish. Or, the child can tell it to him or herself! The speech and thought bubbles move the story along through pictures, but there is no rush to move the story along; you can linger on any (or every) page and discover all the interactive features embedded there, you can quicken the pace to get to the woodcutter's showdown with the wolf. It's entirely up to you. A wonderful soundtrack (how great - and rare - is that!) not only lends a sense of movement to the story but becomes a feature of the storytelling itself. On nearly any page, touching the red bird will elicit her delicious flute melody, adding a pleasant flourish. My 3-year-old grandson, who loves any story with a big bad wolf, adored hearing this story over and over again. He loved being able to intervene in the story, to slow it down, speed it up, watch certain pages again and again, and - on the apple-picking page - to be able to keep the wolf away from Lil Red. I seriously hope this developer will consider making more children's storybook apps. This one is a real treasure.
I LOVE this app! Every "page" is so perfectly beautiful. As a teacher I found it a fantastic reward for my little students. They are mesmerized by it. I love that the story isn't narrated so I can use it in lots of ways. I teach a variety of levels and some ESL so I can use my time to ask good questions based on the level of the student instead of explaining vocabulary.
I can't wait for The Three Little Pigs... Please make The Three Little Pigs!
Amazing, endless, open-ended storytelling!
I work with children of many ages (1-10 years), both with disabilities and typically developing... they *all* love this app! Perfect for practicing questions, eliciting narratives, prepositions, naming, actions, predicting, or just plain old entertainment, I've read it at least 30+ times and have yet to get sick of it!
