What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Miss Spider's Tea Party for iPad is a read-along ebook rendition of David Kirk's original Miss Spider picture book. Children looking for the many beloved characters from the TV series will find they only recognize Miss Spider. In the story, Miss Spider tries to show kindness in making tea for her fellow bugs, but they are all afraid she will eat them. She eventually wins them over. This ebook is highly interactive, giving kids the ability to animate the talking illustrations with a simple touch.
Is it any good?
MISS SPIDER'S TEA PARTY FOR iPAD presents the classic David Kirk picture book in two ways. One has the original illustrations from the book, all of which respond to touching, allowing characters to speak and move about. The other mode shows a completely animated version of the tale (it looks like a movie), with the book's original text still visible for reading along. The graphics on this app are simply stunning. And you also get a memory match game, a set of jigsaw puzzles, and a rather sophisticated art & coloring feature that could be an app unto itself.
