Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit is a charming retelling of the classic children's tale. Younger children can enjoy the interactive version on their own, while children who are learning to read will find just as much value. As they read, they're able to tap words on the screen for prompts when they get stuck. The pop-up elements, meanwhile, are plentiful and non-intrusive -- and are as much fun for adults as they are for children.
Is it any good?
Loud Crow Interactive hits one out of the park with their first app. PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit is one of the best children's book adaptations we've seen. The reading interactive elements are stellar -- but what makes the app really stand out is its detailed use of sound and movement with the pop-up elements. Every image is filled with several interactive elements that will enthrall children and adults. Flick the leaves falling from trees in the artwork and they'll come floating out into the book. Touch Peter or his siblings and they'll giggle with delight. The narration and music, meanwhile, are soothing and bring Beatrix Potter's classic tale to life. It takes the children's book app to a new level -- and is worth every penny of its higher-than-other-book-apps price tag.
