Apps that dig a little deeper to find out what's INSIDE?
-- an alphabet app with interactive x-ray art of each object.
-- how deep can you dig on a ladybug's back? It'll boggle your mind!
--take a walk with Bato as he gathers friends and instruments for a music party.
Three Little pigs and the secrets of a Pop-up Book by Game Collage ($3.99, iOS only)
--a crazy mash-up of classic children's book and high-tech x-ray images revealing the "hidden" gears that make the pop-up pieces move. (See an excellent preview video by clicking on the app title above.)
--explore and play with the properties of very tall buildings. The plumbing gets the most giggles per minute!
--design your own pirate character, then play in the seaport or out on a pirate ship (cut away so that you can see the activity inside the ship)
This evening's hands-on project was to create our own pop-up books (or cards) using these fabulous reference pages from Bookzoompa. Only one kid had time to stay and make one at the library tonight and you can see hers above in the title photo.
