We’ve written about Collins Education’s Big Cat apps several times on Apps Playground: they’re storybook-apps for iPad that aim to spark children’s imagination and get them creating their own stories using the pictures, characters and key vocabulary.
The latest has just come out: Collins Big Cat: The Farmer’s Lunch Story Creator. It costs £2.49, is iPad-only, and involves a farmer who’s lost his lunch. The storyline covers his search for the missing food.
“This story has a predictable structure and patterned language to help early readers,” promises its App Store listing, along with voice narration and sound effects. Your kids can also record themselves (or you) reading the words.
