In this app, children can combine images to form poems that are both visual and verbal. Each slice of illustration is accompanied by a verse, creating funny and often nonsensical (and funny) relationships among the different lines and elements. Tapping the speech bubble icon activates the voice-over, while tapping the moon icon starts the night mode, turning the white elements from the image into black and revealing new secrets in the illustrations. This app is probably more suitable for early primary years, but preschoolers can also engage by playing with the visual text and listening to the poems. For this age group, joint-reading is especially recommended. In changing the image combinations, new relationships between the elements are formed, altering their meanings and fostering both language and visual literacy skills. One suggested activity for joint-reading is that children create their own poems and contrast with the ones in the app. There is also the possibility of taking photos of the combinations you choose and accessing them later through the library.
