★ Winner of a 2013 PARENTS’ CHOICE Gold Honor Award★ PBS-favorite Arthur stars in this interactive story originally published by Living Books★ A fun tale for children about resolving conflicts and helping their friends★ "I am excited to see these engaging interactive versions of my books available to kids everywhere once again. Thanks Wanderful! " - Marc Brown, Author of the Arthur series of booksReview:"Arthur's Birthday is an interactive storybook, adapted from the original Living Books software series. It is priced at $4.99 and is one of the best ways you can spend 5 bucks for your child.
The app includes the original story, which you can have read to you, or which you can explore via extensive interactivity. Nearly every object on every page is interactive in some way, and each reacts to touch in a thoughtfully-designed manner. These elements come alive, interact with other on-screen elements, and interact with the story itself in a logical and appropriate way.
Words are interactive, too. Readers can touch any word to hear what it sounds like. Aside from the obvious reading and word learning that can occur, we also had fun pressing different words to create completely different sentences than those actually written on the screen. And then laugh hysterically at the fun we were having.Also included are both English and Spanish versions, parental tips, and rich teacher resources for use in the classroom setting. This is another world-class interactive storybook from Wanderful."
