What our experts think
We liked the way in which children could have the story read to them and follow the text, or you could turn off the sound and children could read the story for themselves. It would be a good way to encourage a reluctant or hesitant reader to give it a go. With parental input this app has the potential to develop children’s Literacy skills through comprehension and prediction. The addition of some interactive pages made the story more fun for the reader.
The mini games were a good addition and could be used as a ‘reward’ for reading.
It would be even better if...
It would help to have some more tasks in there for children to complete as they enjoyed this and also maybe a word definition page somewhere for the children who don’t understand all the words.
