Early Literacy App of the Week

pigeon Don’t Let the Pigeon Run This App

Mo Willems, Caldecott winning author, brings his popular pigeon to the digital world with this interactive book for kids of all ages. Younger children will like the read-along option with its age-appropriate opportunities for interactivity. Older children can answer questions posed by the bus driver, shake the pigeon (the device) and then listen as their personalized stories are told complete with their own voices.

Besides learning the basics of storytelling, a learn-to-draw-the-pigeon option allows kids to stretch other creative muscles.

The pigeon makes a remarkable move to digital format and is well worth the cost of the app. (iOS 5.1+, $5.99)
