Other IPAD Apps
41. Toy Story
The first Toy Story comes to life in this read-along app with optional voice-over and super cool extras including music
video, games (Ezra loves the parachuting toy soldiers), colouring pages and it’s all, amazingly, free!
42. Talking Roby the Robot
He spins, he boogies, rub him the wrong way and he knocks his head against the glass. Type out his speech or just
talk and hear his robot voice repeat. The babes can’t get enough of Roby, he’s even more popular than Smack Talk
(another hot fave). Also free.
43. The Monster at the End of this Book
If you’re a Sesame Street fan then you’ll love this interactive version of their hit tale starring Grover who, no matter
what, wants to stop you getting to the monster (guess who?) at the end of the book. Ezra and Jed double up over this
one and it cracks me up too. £2.39
44. Air Hockey
Already an App Store classic, what I love about Air Hockey is that I can play it with my stepson (aged 14), my eldest
(almost 5) and my youngest (nearly 2) and have a blast each time. And it’s free!
45. Doodle Buddy
You don’t have to be David Hockney to enjoy the thrill of making pictures with your fingers on iPad. This app offers
various drawing tools as well as backgrounds, stamps and stickers (the kids go a bit crazy with the stickers). Free.
46. Wheels on the Bus
The creators of this app have several bestsellers including the fab Itsy Bitsy Spider. This was the very first game I
downloaded for the kids, and they still enjoy its playful silliness. You can also record your own voice or hear the
rhyme in different languages. £1.19
47. Fruit Ninja
I avoided downloading this for ages in case it was too violent for the babes. Turns out it’s slashy and splashy but not
at all dangerous. Unless you’re a banana. £0.59
This free app’s best for teaching letters and numbers to younger kids. You can pinch, drag or flick the characters to
bounce them around. That’s about it. Jed loves it.
49. Flick Football
My sons are footie mad and even Mama has fun trying to curve the ball around players or score with my finger. I
downloaded this for Ezra but this is probably the app Jed likes best.
I’ve left this app until last although it’s the one we use almost every day. It’s basically a chart where you can add your
children, give them tasks and reward them with stars (adding up to prizes of your choosing). You could even set up a
chart for yourself with tasks and rewards. Pricier at £2.39 but worth every penny.

Children’s Book APPS for the IPAD
Jack and the Beanstalk Children's Interactive Storybook
Ayars Animation Studios
Taking a page out of the Disney playbook (give or take 30 pages), this version of the Jack-versus-Giant
tale doesn't offer sparkling prose.
But in every other area — from its lush, hand-drawn-meets-digital-effects artwork to its treasure trove of
hidden games, effective voice work and lengthy list of ways to customize the experience — it reaches
great heights. While some of the app's interactive surprises seem more obligatory than revelatory (when
Jack buys the magic beans, a hidden bean-matching memory game can be accessed), others are more
inspired. On every page, a hidden golden egg can be found; it hatches to reveal a fuzzy yellow chick
dancing to a short burst of accordion music. On one page, tapping Jack coaxes him into belting out a
song in the style of a Disney animation show tune. And in addition to the standard poking and page
turning used by other iPad story apps, some pages also react to tilting the device or shaking it. The
characterizations, especially of the Giant, his wife and Jack's barnyard animals, are lively. Production
values feel high, and the app's length and bundle of features feel well-paced, never overstaying their
Filled with digitally collaged illustrations and pages that take advantage of the iPad's touch and motion
features, this app stands out by mostly enhancing, rather than getting in the way of, a good Brothers
The familiar tale of the beauty locked in a tower who lets down her long hair for a young prince includes
painted-in pencil sketches of characters and crinkled-paper background textures that display beautifully
on the iPad's screen. In addition to fussily amusing British-accented narration, some pages have sound
effects (a witch's cackle, a bird's chirp) activated by touch. On certain pages, the foreground can be
shifted left and right by tilting the iPad. And on two of the story's 25 pages, a black-and-white sketch can
be colored in with finger motions. A handsome pop-up filmstrip bar provides easy navigation, and the
narration is also available in Spanish.
Whether the girl-in-distress-becomes-a-princess storyline is still relevant after nearly 200 years is an
entirely separate matter, Disney movie adaptations aside.
Pop Out! The Tale of Peter Rabbit
Loud Crow Interactive Inc.
Startling in its mix of digital and traditional book design, Loud Crow Interactive's first iPad book app
translates the text and illustrations of the Beatrix Potter classic into electronic pages that appear to live
and breathe beneath readers' fingertips.
Peter Rabbit's misadventure in Mr. McGregor's garden is told with the illusion of spring-loaded objects
and pull-tab animation. For 55 gorgeous pages, every rabbit, flower pot and bird can be wiggled and
poked as a lush piano accompaniment and optional British-accented narration plays. The surprises
extend beyond the borders of the pictures; poke falling blackberries and they pop out of the image,
settling, photo-realistically, at the bottom of the pages. An unobtrusive silver tab at the top of the screen
can be pulled down at any time to skip to a favorite page. The happy congruence between the original
book's diminutive trim size and the proportions of the landscape-oriented iPad means that Potter's
illustrations appear almost as they would to readers holding the book open — a masterstroke of design.
Grimm's Rapunzel — 3D Interactive Pop-Up Book
Ideal Binary Limited
Visually unique with engaging computer-generated graphics and thrilling transitions between a virtual
book and pop-up playsets, this take on long-haired Rapunzel's tower imprisonment just misses enhancing
the well-worn tale by veering too far from the original story.
The 3-D employed in the service of this app isn't the kind viewed with special glasses; instead it's the 3-D
graphic effects common in video games and computer-animated movies and TV shows. Used here, the
effects turn a digital representation of a fairy tale book into a moving, animated pop-up paradise where
trees, hills and objects readers can manipulate with their fingers spring from the pages. In between lightly
illustrated pages of olde-timey text are the interactive pages, which invite readers to grow flowers for
Rapunzel's mother, assist a prince on his quest to find the trapped princess and even drop vegetables
into a pot for a romantic dinner. Strangely, there are no interactive pages or mini-games involving
Rapunzel's famous hair, a glaring omission. If only the story were as imaginative and full of flair as the
beautifully rendered pop-up pages (which themselves seem oddly middle-American next to the old-
fashioned look of the text). Instead, this version of the Brothers Grimm story is altered and truncated,
exiting on a limp happy ending: The witch gives up Rapunzel without much of a fight, and, except for a
brief detour to the Desert of Doom, there's not much adversity to overcome.
A little girl ponders the secret life of her stuffed bear and attempts to catch him in the act.
Based on the 2004 children's book, What Does My Teddy Bear Do All Day? by Bruno Hachler and Birte
Muller, the brief story is sweetly told and full of surprises. At first, the app seems to be a no-frills, basic
narrative, with painterly illustrations and simple navigation (arrows at the top left and right to flip pages).
With only minimal animation — leaves blowing in a breeze or eyes blinking — it's easy to miss the hidden
features like a drawing tablet accessible by tapping on papers taped to a wall, or the teddy bear's ability to
flop left and right with a tilt of the iPad on the title screen. Where the original book relied on readers' ability
to catch all the details presented on the page, this app takes advantage of the medium with these
interactive touches to provide a full-blown picture of this teddy and his chums' secret life. By not calling
attention to those features until a few seconds after the narration is read on each page, then highlighting
where to touch, it rewards patient readers while still providing a cozy tale for those who want to speed
Dr. Seuss's ABCs ($3.99). We all remember good old Dr. Seuss and his vaguely drug-
influenced rhyming books, right? On the iPad, the classic illustrations come to life--almost literally. "Dr.
Seuss's ABCs" comes with functionality that you won't find in a typical e-book. It can read the book to
your kids or display each image without sound. The book features cool music and brighter-than-life
images, making this one of the best ways to teach your children about the alphabet while keeping them
entertained. Other Dr. Seuss titles are also available on the iPad. If you have to buy one, "Dr. Seuss's
ABCs" has the cleanest production and best looks.
Alice for the iPad ($8.99). Yes, this is "Alice in Wonderland," and no, it's not the spooky
Tom Waits version. Lewis Carroll's classic children's novel achieves new levels of interaction on the iPad
thanks to some brilliant controls and breathtaking art. It's more than just a storybook; tilt the iPad and
Alice will grow or shrink. Shake the screen to move objects and characters, or just read along. It's as
interactive an experience as a parent could want, and there's no way to get closer to "Alice in
Wonderland" without taking illegal substances.
iStoryTime books (varies). FrogDogMedia has one of the silliest names, but I'll
forgive them since their children's book apps are some of the best around. At about $3 for high-res iPad
books, they're simple, narrated books with imaginative art and stories. They're designed for the 2-to-5 age
groups, and they're a lifesaver for parents who need a quick new book for a child's bedtime story. Some
of their best titles include "Silly Lilly Goes to the Beach" and "Shrek Forever After."
International Children's Digital Library (Free). Finally, here's something for
cheapskate parents and bookworm kids. The International Children's Digital Library is a free app that
allows kids to read thousands of books online, although you'll need a Wi-Fi or 3G connection, since books
aren't actually downloaded. Illustration is downplayed in this free app; it's more for kids who are actively
reading on their own and offers a lot of safe, pleasant reading for those youngsters. I actually found
myself engrossed in this app for a few hours.

There are so many applications for the iPad and there are a huge variety of apps that are actually preinstalled from
Apple which allow you to do all of the basic kinds of things. However, there seems to be a different app for different
things when it comes to these apps. For example, there is an app for alarm clocks and there is a separate app for
