Welcome! I love to write, and I love sharing what I write with my readers. I vary my style as much as I can-posting events, creative non-fiction, prose and poetry and the occasional video. Enjoy!

App Review: Fairy Tales for Clever Kids

Fairy Tales for Clever Kids

App Review: Fairytales for Clever Kids
By: Christine McFarlane

Do you need a great way to engage your children, especially when it comes to reading? Technology these days is amazing, and there is one app that you can download from ITunes onto your Iphone, Ipod Touch and/or IPad to help your children with their reading that also involves interacting directly with the story before them.

Fairy Tales for Clever Kids is a great collection of world famous fairy tales that are accompanied by questions and the stories themselves involve dragging and dropping different objects within each scene in the story. While your child is reading, he/she is constantly interacting with the characters of the fairy tale. In order for your child to advance to the next page, they need to answer a small educational question, and in turn this helps stimulate your child's overall reading process.

Within Fairy Tales for Clever Kids you will find

·      Professional illustrating to make the reading enjoyable and unforgettable
·      Educational questions for children about the surrounding world
·      Answers to the question involving moving objects
·      Stories that will help your kid feel right in the middle of the magic world of fairy tales.

Fairy Tales for Clever Kids is available in ITunes under the books section. The first book-The Ugly Duckling is free and you are given a catalogue in your download to go through for other books, such as Cinderella. One glitch that I did find was that the catalogue doesn’t open up as quickly as the book, but then again it could have to do with the speed of my own Internet server.

This app was released on September 19, 2012. Version 1.0 and its size is 39.2 MB. It requires i0S 4.0 or later and is available in the following languages: English, French, German and Russian.  Stanislav Ustymenko at designs Fairy Tales for Clever Kids.
