App Review: Pop Out! The Tale of Peter Rabbit
This adorable app is the #1 Kirkus Top Book App of 2010 and a Parent’s Choice Gold Award winner. There are interactive elements throughout the entire book, even on the title page. Every creature that you touch makes a noise and moves. There are pull tabs that make things happen, such as Mr. McGregor running after Peter Rabbit, and when you turn the page it sounds like a print book. You can touch leaves and make them pop out across the page (hence the name Pop Out!), and touch blackberries and make them splatter. The narrator has a beautiful voice with a British accent, and there is pleasant music playing in the background. You can choose to read the book on your own, and touch words to hear them pronounced. It’s available for most devices, too!
