Mrs. K and Mrs. A have published our third children’s book app in three months! Play, Pop, Play, our latest book app, resembles our prior book apps, Not a Lot on Top and Look, Babysitter, Look. All three are written in easy CVC words for beginning English and ESL readers and have hilarious drawings featuring a little kid to attract young readers.
In Play, Pop, Play, little Tom wants his Pop to play with him—tucked under a table, splashing in a tiny swimming pool, and pumping high on swings. Pop tires out and wants to nap, but Tom keeps going until—well, you’ll have to read to find out.
Several activity pages follow, all using the simple vocabulary and events of the story. Unlike paper workbook pages, these app pages are interactive, encouraging the beginning reader to draw lines with electronic crayons, swipe words in a word search, and number the story events in sequence—appropriate reading skills for new readers. Then—poosh!—the child can erase and start over, or save, or email her work to Grandma.
Play, Pop, Play is available for $1.99 on Apple iPhones, iPads and iPods. To preview or to buy this book, go to http://goo.gl/JMrT3.
