Little Star's Review!



Touch Learn Know - Weather and Seasons

Touch learn know weather and seasons, is a fantastic Felt board style app. That teaches many things, there are 3 main titles to start from
Touch Seasons. In this you have options on the left that give you the choice of a season from Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring.



Then the voice over will come over and tell you which one you have picked.
You also have options on the left the cause affect to the season when you press it
You have storm, Rain, Wind. Snow, Cloudy, Sunny.
This teaches your child cause and affect as well as learning it Rains in autumn, It Snows in winter, today is windy which is how I used this with my kids.



ART
In the painting section you get to choose 9 different Canvases the last being a blank page for your child to create anything, It has a camera option so you can take a photo
of your master piece, with 4 different brush options and an eraser for those tiny mistakes and a good selection of Felt colours it is really fun to use
.




Writing 
You can choose all sorts of words by picture, Bee Clouds Rainbow, Rabbit, Leaves etc and you can choose to write it in small, Big and small. And all big letters.
you also have an option to have the trace word there or you can take the trace word away as your child becomes more accustom to writing by themselves.





Sight Words / Flash Cards

Then you have the Sight words Listening game it is a cute game
where it is also not to hard for the younger ones as you can press the word
and a voice over says what it is so they can match the picture with the word
everytime you get one right you get a gold star which my 4 year old daughter
Loved.




Overall I give this app 4 Little Stars, I think it is fun and interactive that really teaches your child without it becoming an actual lesson. I love the felt idea it gave it a more child craft look to the app.

The Tortoise and the Hare: REMATCH!




What happens AFTER the Tortoise and the Hare’s famous race? Written and illustrated by Wallace E. Keller, the creator of the best-selling children’s book app “The Wrong Side of the Bed 3D,” REMATCH begins with a retelling of the classic fable and adds a hilarious new continuation to the story.
While the Tortoise has become quite famous after winning the race, the Hare is left with a badly bruised ego. Seeking advice from the wise old Owl – “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” – Hare realizes what he needs to do … he challenges Tortoise to – a rematch!


FEATURES:
• 34 richly illustrated storybook pages
• A witty, comical and thought-provoking story
• Over 90 interactive touch spots – tickle the characters to see them react!
• Animated mini-movies, an original musical score and humorous sound effects provide a dynamic multimedia reading experience
• Audio options to “Read to Me” (narration read by the author) or “Read Myself”
• Includes Auto-play feature for automatic page turning
• Written for ages 4 and up!




The Tortoise and the Hare: REMATCH! incorporates the signature high-quality production elements that made Keller’s first children’s book app, The Wrong Side of the Bed, a top 10 ranking iPad paid book app and a standout digital book according to Kirkus Reviews: “For readers still unconvinced that the features of the iPad can translate printed children’s books into full-blown multimedia experiences, this one will change your point of view.”




While maintaining the high standards of story and illustration established by the print industry, The Tortoise and the Hare: REMATCH! storybook app goes far beyond a printed children’s book with animated movie introductions for key book pages, touch animations that show character reactions, a musical score supporting each page of the story and professional narration by the author.


These additional digital book elements are carefully selected and crafted to enhance rather than distract from the storytelling experience. They reflect the publisher’s recognition of the educational value of narrative storytelling in children’s books, as well as the company’s commitment to providing a reading-based alternative to games.




Author/illustrator Wallace E. Keller has illustrated children’s books for Scholastic, Harcourt, Rizzoli International, McGraw-Hill and Houghton Mifflin. A graduate of Art Center College of Design, his illustrations have appeared in The New York Times Book Review, Business Week, Ms. and Psychology Today. His first children’s book app, The Wrong Side of the Bed 3D, received a Kirkus Star and was voted a best children’s book app by Kirkus Reviews, iPhone Life and Babble.
The Tortoise and the Hare: REMATCH! is part of the Tickle Books® line of touchable animated children’s books from See Here Studios, combining the quality of traditional printed children’s books with the engaging features of digital media to nurture a life-long love of reading.




Little Stars Thought's

 2 out of 3! Will the Hare ever learn? ,  Slow and steady always wins the race!

This is a lovely illustrated interactive book that has a quirky and funny humour that my kids loved.
While staying with the same story line we have all know about from reading this story as children.
Tortoise and the Hare rematch goes beyond learning the moral of the story that slow and steady wins the race. It shows us not to give up and teaches us if we try trying again, focusing on what we are doing we will eventually succeed. 

The interface is bright and colourful, the illustrations are fantastic
I just love how the Tortoise does yoga and has his own exercise bike! And how the hare gets so infuriated with how calm and easy going the tortoise is.

This time the hare would not give up and I found myself cheering him on with my children. 1st time he lost, the second time we were laughing at the hare, will he win the 3rd time?


I highly recommend buying this book to read for story time with your kids 


Pricing and Availability:The Tortoise and the Hare REMATCH! can be purchased for $2.99 cents ,  from the App Store on the iPhone, iPad & iPod touch

Upon completion each machine takes off!

Bright colors stimulate visual development and fun toys inspire kids to learn.


Simple and engaging interface allows for uninterrupted play.


Ability to turn sound and music on/off.






Little Star Thoughts : 
This is a fun and intuitive app you have nine different toys to build and once you build them it goes to an animated screen where you can see your creation move! . The colours are very bright and attractive .
The toy's are easy to build you just hold down the part of the toy and drag it to the base as you build the toy you have to keep dragging the parts to the place where they fit .
If you don't put it in the right place it goes back to the place you took it from and you have to try again . This app will help with problem solving as well as fine motor skills.

My kids found this App very entertaining and were amazed when the toy they just built came to life . For only $1.99 USD I highly recommend purchasing this app.
