“Counting Worms and Apples!”
Read in a very cute kid's voice, this ebook is charming for little ones who are especially interested in learning about the numbers. Eddie is the 'teacher' in this app, along with Ellen, George and Malcolm - four little worms. The app starts with the number 1 (which looks like a straight, long worm). moving on to 2 and so on. The connection between the worms and apples are brought out by Eddie saying "one apple" at the end of the presentation of 1, and with the numbers growing bigger, the number of apples also increase on the screen. The idea of using worms to form the shapes of the various numbers is endearing. By sticking with the context of worms and apples, the app really brings across the concept of numbers and basic counting from 1 to 10 across in a very simple yet effective way. This is a very sweet ebook app that will definitely capture the attention of your little ones.
Have your little one count for you, using blocks, or even real apples as in the app. Make your own number cards, and as your child counts, have him/her pick out the right number card to match.
