Three Little Piggies Interactive Book App Review
Three Little Piggies is a super handy learning tool, game and book, all in one cute little book app for iPhones and iPads.
The cool thing about this app is that there are many ways to use this, and it can be used for all ages. My littlest kiddos, are 2, 5 (almost 6), and 9. So, all 3 of them were able to enjoy this together! That is certainly 1 thing we are always on the lookout for.
There are 3 different reading modes and those are:
Listen and Play, which has word by word highlighting, listen and tap objects in each scene, and your little ones are in control of the animation.
There is also autoplay. Autoplay has, word by word highlighting, and karaoke mode with highlighted word by word. This is especially neat for kids when they just want to have fun watching an animated fairy tale.
There is also the read by myself mode, (Aaron's favorite), which allows your child(children) to control the story, and spend as much time on each page as they would like.
There are so many awesome features on Three Little Piggies, I think the all around favorite was how you can blow into the microphone, and be the Big Bad Wolf!
The animations are truly amazing and it is just so much fun to watch! You may end up playing with this one yourself;)
These guys loved huffing and puffing and checking out the little piggies houses, and they control the animation by moving the phone forwards, backwards and side to side.
Three Little Piggies are one of those apps that make it perfectly ok to use technology for learning. I am always wondering about what happened to children reading real books, and turning pages, but then something like this comes along and just blows my mind away. This doesn't take from your child's imagination whatsoever! There are so many things they can do with the animation that they can play and create all on their own! This is another that can't leave anytime soon;) I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
