Do you own an iPad? If so, I definitely think you might get interested to download interactive books for your kids. If you are looking for bed time stories, I strongly recommend to download this application on your ipad: "Elfishki and The Giant Cake" is said to be the answer to your child's 'Books are boring syndrome"
The application is designed to develop your child’s conscious reading skills! Here's a preview on Elfishki's stunning interactive art, and classic but exciting animation:
You have an option to read the story yourself, or choose to just listen to professional audio voice over of the story, so your child can listen along with the text.
See the three(3) Question mark buttons?
There are Questions on every page of the book specifically designed to help your child analyze the text, boost their imagination and make predictions about the story.
There's also a bonus game designed to boost your child’s imagination. The game "Decorate the Cake" is where you can save and share your child’s fantastic creation directly through email.
I enjoyed creating my "seafood e-cake" topped with starfish design and four candles indicating my B's age. How I am loving today's generation and technology. Encouraging child's love for reading through animation is a great way to get their attention.
This application is perfect for kids ages 5-9, but my 4-year old son can get along well with the story. He simply needs help in analyzing the story and comprehensions. Though Fairy Tales can mostly be enjoyed by girls; the awesome pictures, animations, cool images of dragons and other mythical creatures easily captures boys' imagination and appreciation as well.
Overall, this application is a great must have in your educational materials for your child's learning advancement. Two Thumbs Up!
