An Animated Picture Book on Goal Setting and Perseverance
Snake has a tender belly that hurts when he crawls. He asks Horse how to become a horse, thinking it will solve his problems. On Horse's advice, Snake attempts to eat grass, neigh and "walk," and he pushes through his suffering even when friends make fun of him. This is not a typical "Be content with who you are" book, but rather "Working hard toward a goal changes you into something more." Which is why in the end (don't spoil the surprise for your child!) Snake turns into a SNORSE! This tale is a metaphor for how we all transform after accomplishing difficult things.
With multi-touch features, tapping the stars launches over 70 animations with sound effects. Tie Snake's tongue in a knot, send a herd of horses galloping, stick on band-aids, and much more. The dramatized narration with music teaches children to work hard toward a goal no matter what. The Wantstobe enhanced versions are 2015 Family Choice Award recipients in Technology and Apps.
