Happy Easter, Little Critter unwraps the excitement of the springtime holiday. Tag along as Little Critter and the rest of the neighborhood children scavenge for eggs, wait impatiently to scarf down the colorful treats, and head off to church. In fact, readers have a chance to take part in a real Easter hunt, but we’ll get to that shortly.
What fun can be had with Just Me and My Little Brother? That with teamwork better than no other. Win snowball fights and battles against bullies, watch scary shows, and even share goodies. So much is possible, just wait and see all the great things for my little brother and me.
Both stories are offered with the standard “Read it Myself,” “Read to Me,” and “Auto Play” playback modes, plus words that are spoken and highlighted when tapped, noises and narrations when pictures are touched, as well as fun animations and sounds to help pages come alive. A wonderful combination of capabilities to complement the wonderful artwork of Mercer Mayer.
To further enhance the reading experience, these apps also contain the toolbar added to some Seuss omBooks and an integrated mini-game.
In this mini-game, kids seek out certain objects, such as eggs and mice. These items are cleverly disguised through the story. When a child finds one or more, all they need to do is tap on them. The final tally is displayed at the end, which can provide an extra incentive to experience the story again.
