Kid’s  Book and Kid’s iPhone App reviews continue. For my “reasons” behind “Why Apps?!” look here. Type “Kids” or “children” or “educational” into the Apple iStore and you get bombarded with Apps. Which to get?! Look no further… As well as our usual Monday Morning Book Club review!

All previously reviewed books can be found on my Amazon store:

Book Review – Where the Wild Things Are

Where the Wild Things are

Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak. Read together age: 2.5yrs – 5yrs, Read alone age, 6yrs – 9yrs

For me “Where the wild things are” is such a classic children’s book. Max is a naughty boy and gets sent to his room without supper, there he embarks on a magical story to where the wild things are.. My favourite line is “Let the wild rompus start!”. Eventually though he misses his family and heads home… I am a huge Maurice Sendak fan and have many of his other books, so it is only natural that this book should be on my list!

Kid’s iphone App Review – Peekaboo Farm

Peekaboo Farm. No Kid’s iphone App review is complete without the inclusion of Peekaboo farm. Everyone I know seems to have it! It is lovingly designed, so the images are hugely appealing to both children and, erm, me. What it does: you hear an animal sound and get a chance to guess what animal it is. When you tap on the barn door it opens to reveal an animal behind. A child’s voice (American) then tells you the name of the animal. We like how all the animals go to sleep at the end of the “cycle”. Red Ted loved it, though is getting slightly bored of it now (he is 2.5yrs), but Pip Squeak (9mths) is fascinated by it. So it really is a fabulous App for the tiniest amongst us – Red Ted does still play with it, just not as often. It also has a Spanish language option…

  4. Hi Clara,
    First congrats on the new site !!!
    Thank for the review of where the wild things are – I just saw a movie about the marius sendek – what a
    fantastic and strange guy he is.

    On Faces iMake – Creative Craziness – someone did this which actually looks like the wild things

    Thanks for joining WMCIR! We have Where the Wild Things Are, but daughter is not fond of it – she is pretty sensitive to “scary things”. I am sure she will appreciate it more when she is older.

    • Red Ted Art says:

      Oh, I can totally appreciate that! I also think the Gruffalo can be a bit scary and sometimes I think us parents enjoy a book more!!!!! Hope she does enjoy it one day!!

  7. Like Natalie’s little girl, B is not fond of this one, but I keep it tucked away for braver days. Thanks again for your links at Feed Me Books Friday!
