Show And Tell Friday--Mercer Mayer Apps

I love the Mercer Mayer Apps.  First of all, I just love Mercer Mayer books, so it makes sense that I like the app.  However, there are other books I love and really dislike the app, so loving the book isn't always a qualifier.

There are a whole bunch of Little Critter Apps out now.  They have one free book, it's Just Me And My Mom-Lite.  So check that one out first to make sure you like it.

Here are the reasons why I like this app:

  • I love the voice that reads it.  I have seen other apps of children's books that use an adult voice that is monotone.  This one is a child's voice, and is full of emotion.
  • You can choose to have it read to you, or you can choose to read it on your own.
  • The words are highlighted as it is read aloud.
  • You can record your own voice reading it if you'd like.
  • When you tap on objects in the pictures, it names the object and the word is displayed on the screen.
  • There is a little activity throughout the book where you try to find something like a frog, mouse, or spider on each page.
As of today March 8, 2013 (we all know this list will change frequently, and I won't be able to keep it up to date), these are the current Little Critter Books that are Apps.
