Play with Tales: Little Red Riding Hood

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.




Ebooks&Kids shows they really know kids with this fun, interactive e-book app for Iphone, Ipad, or Ipod through Itunes.  I used to be super picky about when, where, and how I let my daughter use my tablet-that is, until I realized how helpful and educational it could be. I believe in a healthy amount of outdoor, and imaginative play; but it took me a while to realize that my kids didn’t always have to do it without playing on a phone, video game, or tablet. In fact, using my tablet has greatly enhanced their imaginative play because they are now trying to reenact the e-books they read, telling the story the way they wish it to be told through acting, dress up, and doll play.




To be clear, this app is less of an e-book than it is an interactive children’s game, but they are able to do so many things with this app and they still get the story to go with it. My daughter’s favorite activity is probably the coloring pages, but she also really enjoyed the matching game as well.




The matching game is made up of full color, fun pictures that relate to The Little Red Riding hood and it works on working memory and concentration, which are two skills that come very in handy during the school year and also during any time of year because, over time, working memory and concentration time increase making it easy to do even more activities as time passes.

My daughter absolutely LOVED this game-it was fun and she got really excited each time she made a match. I had to beg her to go do something else after a while because she sat and played this game for so long. She uses matching during class when we home school to review her letters and letter sounds and I have watched her matching skills improve since starting to play this game.




Her absolute favorite thing to do, though, was the coloring activity. She had a blast playing with the different colors. She at one point made the wolf a pretty pink and everything else purple which she thought was just great-but she also loved playing with other colors and being creative with the picture she was coloring making it her very own.  I have used the app to also show her matching colors and “un-matching” colors which has helped her in dressing herself and in creating color patterns.

This game is especially good for younger toddlers in the 3-5 age range, I could also see a 2 year old liking it as well. It teaches colors, patterns, matching, and allows them to use their imagination as they play. It is super affordable ($1.99) and works on any Itunes compatible device. It is also Appen functional. Appen is specifically designed for children’s hands so they can write and draw on phones or tablets. It plugs into the headphone jack and works without any batteries, making it easy to use any time, anywhere. (It makes using apps way easier for small kids because it makes handling any device super easy for them)
