Pittsun Tsun is a beautiful book for young children with its splashes of color against mostly black and white pages. Nice quality sounds, narration, graphics and easy to read text have been used in the design of this iBook.
Standard iBook features are available, such as easy navigation using the page index and ability to bookmark pages.
Kids can opt to read the book with or without narration. Text highlighting is done in a manner that will be helpful to beginning readers. Part of what makes the book such a fun read is that the story is told by using words that imitate natural sounds and the mix of Japanese and English words.
This is a book kids can read on their own, regardless of their reading ability, or enjoy sharing with someone. The book’s whimsical story and light animations make this a book children will likely return to. Kids may even find themselves repeating the words in the same sing-song manner used in the book.
This eBook is currently priced much higher than most book apps and does not include games and features commonly found in book apps. Most consumers would expect iBooks to be priced less than the more fully featured book apps.
Children will find Pittsun Tsun easy to use even if they have not yet used iBooks. Some adult supervision may be required to get them going. The book does contain a couple external links on the last page, links that will cause the user to exit the book.
