These educational apps, geared towards children ages 4+ or 5+, include an animated story (with hidden surprises on every page) and a story creator. The story creator allows the child to transfer what they just read into writing. Children can create their own story using the scenes, characters, etc. from the book. There is also the option to record the child’s newly created story. Nicely done for young readers/writers!! These apps were the winner of the BETT 2013 Primary Digital Content Award.
