This app introduces the nursery rhyme 'St Ives' with a happy tune and a song. It has the option to listen to the song or read along and listen to the nursery rhyme. Both options are somewhat interactive. In the song option children can turn the different instruments on and off. In the nursery rhyme option, children or adults can read the words or listen to them by tapping on the words. The characters come to life when they are tapped. The nursery rhyme features the number 7 and multiples of seven, stimulating mathematical skills. At the end of the rhyme, there is a quiz that tests children's attention to detail and encourages them to pay further attention in the illustrations in re-readings, such as 'How many yellow kits did you see?'
