AppDictions App Review
UNICEF brings us another interactive children’s book with the story of the brave Momotaro. The book is developed for children ages 3 and above and offers a read to me option or lets the reader explore on their own. Each of the 20 pages in this storybook includes fun animations, some with interactive surprises to find! The reading is slow and clear – easy to follow along with, and will not continue onto the next page until you indicate you are ready. There is even soft, original, Japanese music playing in the background to help add to teh story line. While the story in itself is warming with a good message, perhaps the warmest attribute of Momotaro is that it is dedicated to those affected by last month’s devastating earthquake and tsunami. Help UNICEF in its effort to help the victims of the tragedy in Japan by sharing in the heartwarming tale of Momotaro.
Momotaro traveled across the sea with his dog, monkey and pheasant, finally reaching Ogre Island.
