ebook apps

Bringing the holiday season alive for children is so important. What better way to do just that, than to stock your iPad and iPhone with charming stories like Elly’s Christmas for your readers, young and old?

This is the second in the series of books from Fiona Treweeke. Like Hide, Run, Growl this app is a real gem – a simple, classic story. This time the story follows a crocodile in search of some help cleaning his teeth, of course no one wants to help a crocodile! The narration is lovely, …

Hide Run Growl is an adorable app about a tiger cub who decides to help his injured mum by going hunting for dinner. Told in rhyme, the app follows the cub as he meets different animals along the way.

Read Me Stories by 8interactive is a great idea, however this idea gets lost in translation. Firstly, the app is quite slow and both parent and child get impatient waiting for it to load. Once loaded, you have 2 books that you can read but you can see books that are coming soon – inevitably the child wants to read one of the books that is not currently available, and this is where the frustration begins.

The Wheels on the Bus app is a wonderful app for even the youngest iPhone loving kids. Part interactive book and part music app, you can choose between several languages or musical instruments. You can even have fun recording your own version of this popular song.
