What if you could talk to your child about teasing, bullying and empathy through an app?  Well, now you can.  The Three Little Pigs: A Summer to Remember storybook app provides a great way to teach our little ones about teasing and bullying through a spin on a classic story.  Have you ever wondered if the Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs went to the same school how that would turn out?  This app features positive messages and plenty of teachable moments that are combined with lots of fun interactions and animations.  If you enjoyed the original tale of the Three Little Pigs, why not check out this new edition?!

The Three Little Pigs: A Summer to Remember features three different styles of reading modes: Auto-Play, Read to Me, and Read Myself.  Auto-Play works well for little ones who would enjoy the story best in “movie mode”.  Read to Me is a great option for those who are learning to read, but still need some assistance.  Read Myself is an option that helps older children enjoy the story by reading it on their own.  All reading modes feature the option of reading with text shown or with pictures only and no text shown.  When “show text” is selected, the words are highlighted to encourage children to follow along as the story is being read.

I really enjoyed the Three Little Pigs: A Summer to Remember storybook app.  I thought that the positive message was great for kids to hear, and it was conveyed in a fun and light-hearted way, which is important.  The artwork, animations, and interactions also help to make sure that kids have a great time while reading.  If you are looking for a way to discuss teasing and bullying with your little one, be sure to check this app out!
