Ipad Kids App Review

Today I have two interesting Ipad apps  that I would love to share. As I mentioned before, I am not a great fan of  games on Ipads or Iphones for children. But I do like the educational applications. And today I have innovative book applications which we have really enjoyed.

Ladybird Classic Me Books: 


The classic Ladybird books are available as an application now. What a joy! We received the promo code for The Zoo. It is lovely for children to read and listen to the stories with sound effets.  There is also a feature that enables children to record their own voices.Very engaging and helps with reading skills.

Available from itunes for £0.69.

Tales for Great Grandchildren 

This must be the most beautiful and enchanting app I have ever come across. A collection of  13 stories from India and Nepal,this app is aimed at older chidren, between 7-12 years old. The tales were inspired by the author John Jackson's  trek around Nepal and India some 30 years ago. He also narrates the stories in the application and I enjoyed listening his absorbing voice. All the stories are interesting but I especially liked the Cold Side of the Moon.
The application has "read-to-me" and "read-to-self" modes.

Available from itunes for £4.99 for the bundle of tales,or  £0.69 per tale.

You can watch the official trailer for this app.



Disclosure: I received promo codes for these apps. This review however reflects my  honest opinion. Please bear in mind that I only write about products that I really like and would be happy to purchase.
