App Review: Storybooks from Nosy Crow

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK, LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD, CINDERELLA, and THE THREE LITTLE PIGS are just three of the amazing, interactive storybook apps available from publisher Nosy Crow.

Each of these award-winning apps contains an age-appropriate version of the classic children’s story along with visually stunning illustrations. Text-highlighting supports emerging readers.

The animation, music, and interactive elements contribute to understanding of the story rather than distracting from the plot. The open-reading environment incorporates a game where readers work their way through onscreen tasks such as collecting treasure as they read the non-linear narrative. This approach is particularly effective with reluctant readers.

Look for others in this series coming soon. SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARVES is currently under development.
