Since getting my iPad I think my kids use it just as often as I do, as a matter of fact I think they use it more. The reason is usually some kind of app or game they wanted to play. We recently started to discover interactive apps and they love it. Since my main reason for getting an iPad was for books of course we added some books for the kids as well. Currently we are reading The Tailor’s Tales. Its an interactive book for the iPad. It’s so cool and the kids really enjoy it. What is an interactive book you ask? The book has special hidden features that come to life by touching the screen of the iPad. There’s even music on some of the pages.
I loved that the book has several different stories inside so when we are reading it we can pick one or two to read to the kids and they get a full story instead of having to read them a whole book for twenty minutes. They like all the rhymes and finding the extra special touches in the app. Like in the first story of the bowler hat. When you first turn to the page it looks like this…
The page is empty when you turn on to it. When you touch it the hats start to appear. Here’s what it looks like after the kids got touch happy. LOL.
Here’s what it looks like after the kids figured out the trick of the hats. These are the fun parts of the book that we enjoy and like. You kids will also enjoy finding these features and trying to find out what pages has hidden ones. Another favorite of my kids is this page..
At first it looks like its nothing and then you tap the ring and ….
Pretty cool, right? My kids laughs a lot at this page. Through out the book are fun things like this. We enjoy trying to find the pages that has stuff and the ones that don’t. Some are pretty easy because it has sound, while others you have to do some investigating to find out what’s hidden.
You and your kids can spend lots of time enjoying the stories and the amazing illustrations in this storybook. If you are interested in getting your own copy you can download it from the iTunes store.
