Nosy Crow are great at developing interactive storybook apps for younger children. These apps allow children to be read to or read along themselves. Children can interact with the screen, which reacts according to the story i.e. cleaning the cow, feeding her hay etc. The story is wonderfully illustrated with narration from a child, which is a great touch. Words are highlighted as they are read, supporting word recognition for early readers. There is a very wide range of vocabulary used, which is great for helping children to learn new words. The functions of the tablet are well used, allowing children's pictures to be input in to the story line i.e. the child's face appears in the mirror, with an added bonus of creating a puzzle from your child's face. Nosy Crow have a range of other stories available, following a similar format.
