Children’s Books Apps

March 20th, 2012 by melissa y.


Are they books or are they games? Lately, we debate this a lot here at Sweet on Books. This particular app/book, created by Tropisounds, is called Emma in Africa – it is the first in a series what Tropisounds calls a Book Puzzle app.

In the app/book, Emma travels the world, and along the way she documents what she does and sees. Particular features of the app include:
•Book is in two languages, English and/or Spanish.
•Includes audio on off feature, for read along.
•10 classic and 10 shape puzzles!
•Features a song in Swahili language, with English and Spanish translation.
•Lots of real pictures with fun educational animal facts.

It has definitely kept my little guys attention. Certainly perfect for a car ride or whenever your pre-schooler gets antsy.

I am not sure you can call this a book, it seems more like an educational, interactive game. But no matter which side of the argument you fall – book or game – I think it is still more worthwhile time spent than say watching a TV program.
