Jack Goes to Sleep by Onelink Communications and Jay & Dee Publishing – Review



iPhone Screenshot 3

What we love…

the app presented two choices for decision making which made it easy for kids to choose one versus the other as well as having kids help clean up and having consequences for making bad decisions.

What we’d love to see…

word highlighting, a child lock for the external link, consistent ways to turn the page within the app as well as the ability to hide the “m” as my son hit it a couple of times by mistake.

Summary

This is a great app for toddlers and preschoolers that is approrpratie for either during the day or the night time.  It is not overstimulating and will help children make good choices throughout the day.

Our Rating

Jack Goes to SleepJack Goes to Sleep from OneLink Communications and Jay & Dee Publishing is a universal app for iOS. Jack goes to sleep is an interactive storybook where you help Jack make decisions about his day. It features a read to me (narrated) and read to myself version. The story starts when Jack wakes up in the morning and has to pick out the clothes he wears, breakfast, spending time with a parent and helping in the backyard. The app practices fine motor, critical thinking, choices as well as positive feedback or consequences for making decisions.

I loved that the app presented two choices at a time which made it easy for kids to make a decision and then move on within the story.  I also liked that the story had a variety of “choices” or paths that could be taken depending on which decision your child made and that positive decisions like asking for help rather than trying to do things oneself were rewarded.  The illustrations were watercolors and very easy to see and understand what was going on in the picture.  I liked that Jack helped to pick up the toys and clean up – as it provides positive reinforcement to children that they need to finish tasks and clean up after taking out their toys.

In terms of enhancements, I would like to see word highlighting of the text as it is read in the narrated mode.  I would also like to see a child lock put on the “about” sign as it includes a link to the internet under “go to Jack’s House.”  I would also like to see a little bit more interactivity on some of the pages such as the ability to switch on and off the lights, opening the refrigerator, raking leaves, helping with the groceries.    When Jack is asked to do a task, if a child does not tap on the right word (i.e. finished) the first time, it would be nice to either circle the word like in other pages or highlight it somehow to indicate that they should touch it.  I also noticed on some of the pages that they were turned by a swipe, while others used an arrow, or even turned by themselves after making a choice.  I think  it would be good to be consistent throughout the app on how to turn the page.  I think it would also be fun to either draw on the bath with the crayons or play with the toys.

This is a great app for toddlers and preschoolers that is approrpratie for either during the day or the night time.  It is not overstimulating and will help children make good choices throughout the day.

What we love…

The data collection, the number of options and the customization.  A great tool  for assessing reading and listening comprehension skills.

What we’d love to see…

Some easier stories included in the app, some more engaging features in the stories.

Summary

This is a wonderful app that targets skills important to succeeding in education. It can be used by parents, teachers and therapists alike but will not be most children’s first choice in leisure apps.

Reading Comprehension Camp

Reading Comprehension Camp is an iPad only app from Smarty Ears. Smarty Ears was founded in December of 2009 by Barbara Fernandes, a practicing Speech-Language Pathologist certified by the American Speech and Hearing Association. Smarty Ears was the first company to create apps geared towards speech therapy for mobile devices. Three years later, Smarty Ears has created over 50 applications for children and adults with speech and language delays and disorders such as stuttering, articulation delays, Autism, Down Syndrome, and language disorders. Their goal is to provide the best tools that engage every child to learn, develop appropriate communication skills and become better communicators.

 

Reading Comprehension Camp is a wonderful teaching tool that I have already used in speech therapy.  My students like the program but it is not their favorite, as it is a no frills program with a picture and a story. The students can either read a story or have it read to them. There are five levels of stories. Most of my students are 1st Grade and under.  Level one is too difficult for them to read. I read the stories to them or hit the play button under the picture and the story is read to them.  Then the student(s) take a quiz. You can choose up to 4 students to participate and you touch the student that will answer the question for each question presented which is nice because I had a student leave the group and then was able to switch between the other two without having to skip questions like in some programs that alternate between students in a specific order.

iPad Screenshot 2

This program has some nice options for the quiz, you can choose between: all questions, who, what, where, why, when, how, inferences, cause and effect, compare and contrast, sequencing, and vocabulary/context clues. Any combination of questions can be chosen. Data collection is kept by the program for the date of first story, total number of questions answered and total number of stories completed.  Data is recorded on overall performance of all stories for each type of question and data is kept for each story. Data includes: date taken, number of participants, story name, activity duration, and whether each type of question was attempted or not, as well as if the answer was right or wrong. This program keeps all the data a person could ask for, and all of it can be imported into Smarty Ears Therapy Report Center (TRC) app so that all information collected on a student by any of the apps compatible with the TRC can be stored and shared or printed in a single report. What a time saver for progress reports! Smarty Ears is a company that provides therapists with what they want!

iPad Screenshot 5

There is also an option to create your own stories – you can use of the included images or add your own from your iPad camera roll. You can also easily add your own comprehension questions and record the audio for your story. The app includes 5 levels of stories: Level 1 is designed for 2nd grade; while level 5, with a Flesch-Kincaid readability level of 6-7 grades, is designed for older students. I would like for the program is to incorporate easier stories for beginning readers to assess their reading comprehension skills versus listening comprehension skills. The app does allow the user to add their own stories but it would be nice to have a few stories to begin with until you have time to add your own. Think about it- the classroom stories could be added to the program if you are motivated enough to do it!

 

This is a great app for assessing reading comprehension and listening comprehension skills. The data collection is superb! The number of options and customization is wonderful! I would like to see some easier stories included in the app. If you are looking for entertaining apps that your child will choose often this is not the one for you as there are no animations, music etc. to draw the kiddos to when they have leisure time. Overall, this is a wonderful app that targets skills important to succeeding in education that can be used by parents, teachers and therapists alike but will not be most children’s first choice in leisure apps.

What we love…

The fun interactive elements

What we’d love to see…

Improved consistency between the text and illustrations, word highlighting as it is read.

Summary

More like dessert than a dreaded side dish, The Prisoner of Carrot Castle will appeal to a child’s insatiable appetite for entertainment.

Our Rating

 

The Prisoner of Carrot Castle“Eat your vegetables, or else!” you say. “Or else what?” your picky child might answer. What do you say next?

Thanks to The Prisoner of Carrot Castle , a digital picture book from Purple Carrot Books , aimed at persnickety eaters, parents everywhere can now answer, “You’ll have to face the King of Carrot Castle before the sun goes down.”

That’s exactly what happens to Aidan, the story’s protagonist. Aidan doesn’t want to eat his carrots and broccoli at dinner. He stares listlessly at his plate until, (surprise!) he is transported to a fantasy world where castle walls are made of carrots and trees are made of broccoli. Can Aidan overcome his distaste for veggies and find his way home? Kids will have to read the story to find out. (Spoiler alert: the story ends happily and healthily ever after.)

 

iPad Screenshot 4

The reader can toggle the music and narration from the splash screen, which is a plus. The book has read to me and read by myself options, but no word highlighting as it is read. To turn the pages the reader has to slide a carrot out, and to return to the home screen they have to slide a house icon. Some children will find these cute, and they do prevent accidentally triggering these when searching for interactive elements, but others may find them unnecessarily complex.  The Prisoner of Carrot Castle contains no adverts, in-app purchases or social media links. The app is designed for kids aged 3 to 8-years-old, it includes light animation, and interactive elements such as animal noises, sliding Aidan down a tunnel, and helping him to escape by feeding him carrots and broccoli. Kate Jeong’s pleasing illustrations include enough detail to seem realistic, without losing their youthful appeal. However, we’d love to see improved consistency between the text and illustrations: the text says that the residents of Carrot Castle are ugly and sick, but the artwork portrays them as healthy.

 

iPad Screenshot 2

The book also includes a game, which is also available as a standalone download, where the reader can play digital dress up with three different knights.

Overall, most kids, even those who aren’t picky eaters will enjoy Aidan’s adventure. Helping Aidan slide through the vegetable-based walls of Carrot Castle was surprising and fun. Kids will enjoy feeding Aidan his carrots and broccoli as they read.  More like dessert than a dreaded side dish, The Prisoner of Carrot Castle will appeal to a child’s insatiable appetite for entertainment. Recommended for  kids aged 3 to 8-years-old.

There is also a free curriculum available for using the book for the Common Core Standards. You can download it by following this link:  http://purplecarrotbooks.com/parents-teachers/

The book is available as an iPad only app and  as a print book.

Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr Seuss and Oceanhouse Media is a story about Horton the elephant and his friend Mayzie the bird who convinces him to sit on her nest and instead of just going to get some food flies away with no plans to return. This book features “read to me”, “read to myself” and “autoplay modes” like other Oceanhouse Media titles. As words are read, they are highlighted providing children with a visual reminder of the spoken word. In addition, if your child wants to have a page re-read they just need to hold down on the paragraph and they will be able to have it re-read to them. You can also touch various objects on the pages to have them named for you as well as having the names pop-up on the page. I think this book can teach children about what it means to make a promise and following through in the end. Read our full review

The Lorax by Dr Seuss -from Oceanhouse Media. In the story a boy visits a desolate place – The Street of The Lifted Lorax. He wonders how it got to be that way, and the Once-ler tells him the sad tale via the Whisper-ma-phone . When the Once-ler arrived, it was a beautiful place with green grass and lots of beautiful Truffula Trees. Brown Bar-ba-loots lived on the Truffula fruit and played under the trees, Humming-Fish filled the pond, and the songs of the Swomee-Swans filled the air. The Once-ler was entranced by the soft tuft on the Truffula trees. When he chopped down a tree for it’s tuft and used it to knit a Thneed, (a very strange garment) up popped the Lorax to “speak for the trees”. The Lorax’s pleas went unheeded, and the Once-ler chopped down more and more trees, building a factory and inventing a machine to chop trees faster. Soon the Brown Bar-ba-loots had nothing left to eat and had to leave. The smog from the factory and the water pollution N9JJKTP4E3A6 forced the Swomee-Swans and Humming-Fish to leave too. The factory kept getting bigger until there were no Truffula trees left. Everyone left except the Once-ler, and he puzzled over the meaning of “UNLESS” on a pile of stones the Lorax left behind. He finally realized that “UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not”. He entrusts the last Truffula seed to the boy, in the hope he will plant a new Truffula forest and protect it, so that “the Lorax and all his friends may come back. “ This story is a favorite of iMums Mary and Alison.

The iconic Christmas story How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr Seuss, is available in iTunes as an app by Encinitas, California based developer Oceanhouse Media.
The story is the classic tale of the Grinch who “hated Christmas, no one quite knows the reason… but the most likely reason of all may have been his heart was two sizes too small”. Down in Who-ville there is all kinds of noise and excitement as the Who’s prepare for Christmas. The Grinch looks down on all the excitement and commotion and vows to stop Christmas from coming. He gets an awful wonderful idea; he dresses up as Santa, and turns his dog Max into a Reindeer. He hitches up to an old ramshackle sleigh and heads down to Who-ville to steal all the presents. After climbing down the chimney he takes the stockings, presents, all the food from the house and even the Christmas tree. “He did the same thing to the other Who’s houses leaving crumbs much to small for their mouses”. He loads up his sleigh and gets ready to drop it off the top of Mount Crumpit. Listening to the town below he expects to hear the Who’s sobbing but instead “every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small, was singing! Without any presents at all!” The Grinch puzzles over this until he realizes “Maybe Christmas…doesn’t come from a store, Maybe Christmas .. perhaps… means a little bit more!” After his revelation the Grinch brings back everything to Who-ville and they all have a wonderful Christmas together.

What Was I Scared Of? By Dr Seuss is a great app by the renowned Southern Californian developer Oceanhouse Media.
It is told in classic Dr Seuss style, with rhyming text and cute illustrations. The story starts out with “I” meeting a mysterious “pair of pale green pants with nobody inside them”, and he convinces himself he’s not scared of them. But then he starts meeting them everywhere – walking, cycling, rowing, and with every encounter he grows more and more frightened. He is so scared that he spends 2 nights hiding in a Brickel bush, but has to leave to “pick a peck of Snide in a dark and gloomy Snide-field that was almost nine miles wide”. The (optional) background music does a great job of helping to build the tension, it climaxes as he reaches into a snide bush and “I felt my hand touch someone! And I’ll bet that you know who”. He panics and yells and screams until he sees the pants begin to cry and realises “They were just as scared as I”. He sits down to comfort the pants and they end up becoming friends.
