Come along and enjoy this fairy tale classic, as you explore Little Red Riding Hood’s world in a whole new way! The children’s favorite tale, Little Red Riding Hood, has been transformed into a unique storybook learning app with fun games and puzzles. Children are able to experience the story in a new and exciting way through professional HD video storytelling and fun educational activities. I really thought that this app was fun and would encourage children to want to read.
Being able to watch a storyteller bring the tale to life is one of the most unique features of this app. Kids will be able to watch the storyteller’s face and understand the meanings of words by watching the emotions and gestures displayed by the storyteller. This app is designed for children ages 3 through 6 years old (ideally), but could be enjoyed by children of all ages.
There are many modes to this app – the main mode being the Little Red Riding Hood HD storytelling video, expertly told by a British English speaking storyteller. Children are also able to read the story on their own in the “Listen, Read & Practice” mode and flip through the beautifully-illustrated pages. In the “Listen, Read & Practice” mode, kids can also share their story by recording themselves reading the story on their own. The “Flashcards” mode allows children to learn new words and understand the vocabulary that is presented in the story. Kids will enjoy the “Word Quiz” mode that is a game that challenges kids to race the clock as they practice reading and matching words. I liked the “Teaching Tips” section that provides parents with over 20 creative activities and ideas to help their kids learn while having fun – this section would also be helpful for teachers or caregivers.
I really enjoyed the Kids Stories in English: Little Red Riding Hood app. I think that kids will love this new take on the classic fairy tale and will enjoy the storytelling video. All of the games and quizzes work perfectly for ensuring that kids get the most out of the story and learn the vocabulary. I would definitely recommend this app to those with young children who are learning to read.
