“Fun Sequel to the 3 Little Pigs Story”
This is a very interesting sequel to the 3 Little Pigs story that most kids have heard. The writers are very clever to come up with the sequel and to suggest a very kind theme of being friends to each other, in the animal world! Children of various ages can listen to the story or there is also the option of turning the audio off, and having a parent or a more advanced reader read it out loud or silently on his/her own. The illustrations are well done, and even though this is not an interactive ebook, the use of rhymes in the pages are great for children in their learning. The prompt to turn the page is by tapping on the arrow to the right. Parents can certainly pause and discuss the images on each page with their child, before proceeding on to the next page. Parents also can make use of the rhyming words in each page and have kids come up with other words that rhyme with the ones on the page. This is especially great in helping your child increase their vocabulary, think of words that rhyme, and consequently words that rhyme that could replace the existing ones on the page - which is yet another challenge! All in all, this is a well done app with a fun story line that is good for all.
Encourage your child to come up with another sequel to this story. What could the next part be, after the wolves and pigs become friends. Help your child brainstorm ideas and have him/her draw out the pictures to his/her new story, as you help write down the words that come out of your child's mouth as he/she is telling you the new story. You can work together to create your NEXT sequel.
