Come along on an adventure to walk on the moon! With To The Moon, children will read a clever tale about preparing for a trip to the moon in their very own spaceship. I thought that this e-book was quite cute and I liked the simple and fun design.
This e-book features three reading modes to accommodate all levels of reading: 1) Read to Me – children can listen to narration and interact with the story, 2) Read Myself – kids can read on their own as well as interact, and 3) Auto Mode – plays like a movie, great for younger children! The app helps to encourage reading in younger children – words are highlighted as they are narrated, and you can tap words and objects to hear them spoken. I really enjoyed the different ways that children could interact – for example, testing out the spaceship controls by pushing the colored buttons (doors open/close, lights go on/off, etc.) or putting your spacesuit on piece by piece. I also loved the end of the story when kids can countdown from 1o to 1 and then launch their spaceship to the moon! Blast off!
I thought that To The Moon was a cute interactive storybook for kids. I will definitely be sharing this app with my son, as he loves to push buttons and make things happen! If you have little space explorers in your home, you should definitely check this one out!
