A Review Of Jack And The Beanstalk Interactive Storybook App
Developers are barely skimming the surface when it comes to producing stellar IPad Apps for children. There aren’t too many that have that “wow” factor.
But, every day new apps surface and I discover some old gems as well.
For instance, a couple of days ago, I handed over $3.99 to the ITunes App Store for the highly praised storybook app of the classic tale, “Jack And The Beanstalk”. This interactive book was produced by Ayars Animation.
I cannot begin to describe the beauty of this lovely, animated book. There are so many surprises inside this book and, wisely, there is an appendix so one can see which pages are harboring the magic and wonder of e-technology.
If you don’t wish to listen to the narrator, the characters themselves tell the story, sometimes with music, dance and finger magic thrown in for fun and effect.
However, you would be wise to disable the auto play. It isn’t necessary and it moves too quickly, not allowing the children to enjoy and explore each page in it’s entirety.
I cannot say enough about this lovely interactive book. And, to say more would spoil the surprises in store. Now, I need some grandchildren in the house to share the fun. Soon enough!
