It is packed with stunning pictures and videos, well written texts. Kids and adults will learn a lot about sharks from the app: each shark’s size, habitat, body parts, such as teeth, life span, … I am most impressed with the visual effect of the app. It is not only in the pictures and… Read more

Normally, book apps don’t really appeal to me. I love paper books. I want my kids to love paper books. As I was going through this app however I found myself touching every bold word and feathered friend.  I get it now.  Book apps help make reading and learning to read fun and engaging.

Sylvan Dell

On iGameMom, we have reviewed a couple book reader apps.  You can think a book reader app as a book library or book store, where you can find many books, and pick which one you want to read or purchase.  Recently, Bethany from No Twiddle Twaddle told me about an app from Sylvan Dell.  As soon as I looked at the app, I felt in love with it right away.  In Sylvan Dell, all the books are science and math… Read more

Over in the Jungle

Over in the Jungle, a rainforest rhyme by Dawn Productions is a reading, counting and sing-along interactive app. There’s so much packed in here, that you certainly get quite a bit of content for your dollar with this app! I would say it works best with 3-5 year olds (however, there’s probably something of interest to a wider age range in terms of factual information contained in the app) and it gives kids the opportunity to have lots of variety… Read more

The book teaches children, with the use of rhyme, the correct terms for different groups of animals. Here’s… Read more

Frog Dissection

Did you dissect a frog when you were in school?  How did you like it?  Today I am going to introduce an app Frog Dissection.  It brings the whole dissection process onto iPAD.  It won’t replace the real practice, but it is a wonderful tool to learn about the dissection process, the organs, and frog’s body and life.  For those who can’t enjoy the real dissection, this app offers a great alternative to dissecting on a real frog. The app… Read more

WWF (World Wildlife Fund) launched a new app recently, called WWF Together. The app introduces the amazing animals, such as tiger, elephant, panda, with stunning photographs.  With the short paragraphs and interesting facts about the animals, it is great for after-dinner read aloud with families. I think I am going to read it with my son. There are some interactive activities in the app.  For example, kids can cut the bamboos with their fingers to reveal facts about panda. For each animal, there… Read more
