We used to have a deck of cards that were conversation starters to pass around the dinner table.  Not that with three daughters we really needed to encourage talking at the table, but a focused conversation was a nice break now and then.  Let’s Talk Let’s Draw is an app with a similar concept.

The Let’s Talk book provides questions for you and your child to discuss. Like “The funniest person  I know is…” Other questions ask about hopes and dreams, feelings and family.  Its a great opportunity to share quality time with your child.I think this could be a great app to use while waiting in lines or for appointments or quiet time at home.  The book has 67 clear pictures and illustrations for discussion. Each page is uniquely illustrated and includes artwork by classic, modern and contemporary artists. Some of my favorite pages display several works of art and asked which is you favorite and how does it make you feel. I appreciate that it steps out of the box to inspire critical thinking.

The Let’s Draw game gives you the opportunity to do the artwork. 30 pages include simple line or dot prompts to incorporate in your masterpiece.  To complete the picture there’s a few brushes and a rainbow of colors to choose from. What I used as sticks for a snare drum could just as easily have been alien antenna.

Let’s Talk Let’s Draw gave me a  glimpse of my children’s personality.  I have one daughter that will sometimes shy away from conversations about feelings. I think this app provides a secure environment where a shy child, or one who has difficulty expressing themselves, could really shine.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this app for review purposes.
