Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Bunny Fun: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes by Rosemary Wells is an interactive adaptation of the well-known children's song. This app was created in collaboration with children's author and illustrator Rosemary Wells. Kids can watch four bunny characters dance and point to the different body parts as the lyrics are sung by a chorus of children in four different languages (English, French, Spanish, and Japanese). Kids can also tap different areas on the bunny to see and hear each body part recited back in the different languages, and can record themselves singing the song.

QUALITY
 

There isn't a lot of depth to BUNNY FUN: HEAD, SHOULDERS, KNEES, AND TOES BY ROSEMARY WELLS, but being able to listen to "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" in four different languages -- and see the words spelled out in each language, too -- adds an extra layer of educational fun. The app looks great too, with charming artwork in Wells' trademark style and four distinct scenes that reflect the ethnic diversity of each language. (The Japanese rabbit, for example, wears a kimono and stands with the iconic Mount Fuji in the background.)
