Review: To the Moon
Cute interactive book for any child who loves to build play houses and have exciting adventures!
View on the App Store: To the Moon - Interactive Book App for Kids - Awake Entertainment
Features of To the Moon:
This is an excellently put together iPad story with the perfect amount of interactivity for toddlers and young children.
Starting in the living room and using items from around the house your child helps to build a rocket ship!
The book is written in short rhyming sentences. The atmosphere created by the narrator is anticipatory and engaging!
See how the space rocket forms, including buttons to open and close the doors, turn on and off the lights and send the rocket up and bring it down again. Out little girl (aged 4) just adores this part of the App, seeing the rocket going up and down based on her command fills her with giggles and delight.
Dress yourself as the astronaut ready for launch by choosing your suit, helmet, boots and gloves (left and right).
Finally reach the 'launch pad' where you countdown from 10 to zero and see your spaceship blast off to moon!
From here your child can imagine what that may be like and it can be perfect to introduce a conversation about what it is like on the moon or any their related topic about space.
You can watch this story unfold using Auto-play for young children, as well as choosing Read to Me or Read by Myself to cater for all stages of reading level.
10 out of 10!
