The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Juno Jr's The Day The Music Stopped is a storybook app that teaches music concepts such as melody, harmony, and rhythm, and keeps its musical theme throughout with plenty of musical instruments and music notations in every part of the story. The story follows Juno and her friends as they try to bring music back to a land where it has been shushed, and includes mini-games and music videos.
Is it any good?
JUNO JR'S THE DAY THE MUSIC STOPPED is a multifaceted story that includes video and games in addition to the story itself. During the portions where the story is read, the words are not highlighted, nor can kids tap the words to hear them again. The story itself may lose appeal quickly, but the included songs and mini-games will delight kids over and over again. The melody mini-game in particular allows for creativity and experimentation. The music education and theme are nicely carried throughout the book, and the animation and live-action puppets are well done.
