Back in April, I shared the debut of the Bob Books Reading Magic Apps from Learning Touch. Well, they just released 12 more scenes in Volume 2!
So, no surprise. Bob Books Reading Magic #2 is my pick for week two of our month-long app giveaway extravappganza.
Here’s a snipped of what I said in April:
I love when learning and fun are fused purposefully — and creatively — through technology. Which is why I’m impressed with the Bob Books Reading Magic app. By blending animation, letter recognition exercises, letter-sound matching, touch screen technology and simple stories, the best selling Bob Books become more structurally interactive for emergent readers.
Still holds true for the Volume 2 release. Need a few more reasons to give this app a try? I’ve got three for you:
- When your kiddo accurately completes a task, the black and white line drawing transforms to a full-color illustration — just like when you know how to comprehend a text, the story comes to life.
- There are several different levels, so you can scale the learning activities based on the reading readiness of your child. Even the youngest of toddlers can do level one — a drag and drop the letters to match a word. Young kids are beginning to identify letters, objects and symbols, so this is an age appropriate task for pre-schoolers. The app also teaches left to right letter order, spelling without visual hints and/or picking letters to spell words. Think of it like buying shoes for a toddler: it’s an app that can entertain your toddler now but still has lots of room to grow.
- Usually I love apps that have a whole lotta animation and movement. But for the Bob Books app, I love the simplicity of their animations. Leaves a lot of room for your toddler to use their own imagination to build a story.
The app is currently available for iPad and iPhone for $1.99 from iTunes.
