5 Book Apps for Kids

Print and Digital Books... iPad and iPhone. 
I have lots to learn.
My Daughter placed 2 grandsons in my lap and said, "Watch this!"
Together, generations apart, yet focused on the screen... simply amazing. It's all new for me. Do you have a favorite book app?

Here's a list of book apps for kids:

  • All by Myself by Mercer Meyer  $1.99) -- In this simple, sweet, and very human picture book, Mercer Mayer’s popular Little Critter shows us all the things he can do by himself.  The wry illustrations often point to the fact that Little Critter doesn’t do everything perfectly, but he always makes an effort to do the best he can!   Great reviews because it's interactive.  Favorite feature is when pictures are touched the words “zoom up” and are spoken. 

  • Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss ($3.99) -- Hop on Pop remains a perennial favorite when it comes to teaching kids to read. Dr. Seuss creates uncomplicated rhymes to foster learning and inspire children to read. The book helps teach little ones how to read. 
    5* reviews.

  •  Eek and Slo ($.99 -- iPad only) -- Eek the earthworm and Slo the snail. Through an entertaining but simple story spun around these two characters, Punflay seeks to introduce your child to the key pre-number spatial concepts of up and down. Ages 4+

  • Little Red Hen ($.99) -- Who will help me read this story? This delightfully narrated and animated interactive storybook includes a choice of English, EspaƱol and Chinese narration and text. Great reviews.
  • Three Little Pigs and the Secrets of a Popup Book ($3.99) -- This book is bound to please children of all ages -- the young ones will love the music and playing peek-a-boo with the characters, the older ones will enjoy the story, and older ones yet will be mesmerized by the intricate mechanical details exposed by cool xRay goggles.   Great 5* reviews.
