Valentine day is a couple weeks away. What are you going to do with your kids? Are you going to give them gifts? I have two books today that are perfect valentine gifts for the kids and great for reading on Valentine’s Day.
Cooper’s Big Bear Hug:
A sweet young bear wants to find a way to show his mom how much he loves her. He asks for ideas and finally he found the best way … This is one of the interactive storybooks in the Interactive Story Buddy™ line from Hallmark Cards. The App is free, and you don’t need the interactive Cooper Bear to enjoy the story.
In addition to the story, there is a kid-friendly puzzle and a fun game where kids can help Cooper reach his yummy honey.
I like the Record You Own Reading feature. Parents can record the reading page by page. When kids read the book, they can choose if they want to listen to mom’s reading, or the professional narration coming with the app. This is a great feature for families who have members travel a lot. It is a great way to keep the bonding while physically not together.
Cooper’s Big Bear Hug works on iPhone, iPod, and iPAD. It is FREE on App Store.
The Kissing Hand:
School is starting in the forest, but Chester Raccoon does not want to go. To help ease Chester’s fears, his mother shares a family secret called The Kissing Hand to give him the reassurance of her love any time! A New York Times #1 bestseller, this heartwarming book has become a children’s classic.
In this app version, a lot new features that are impossible on a print book are added to help early readers recognize the words:
Picture-word association: when kids tap an object on the picture, the corresponding word will zoom and be read aloud to them.
Individual word highlight: kids see each word is highlighted when the book is read to them.
The Kissing Hand is FREE for limited time. Visit HERE to learn why it is free and for more details about the app.
If you would like to check it out or purchase it, please use the App Store link provided below. The cost is the same to you, but iGameMom gets a small percentage. Thanks for your support! Note: The link works for all countries.
