Looking for a picture book app for tonight’s bedtime? Check out Where Do the Swans Sleep? by Felix Hofmann. This picture book app includes music, audio narration and stunning illustrations where kids follow Felix on an exciting dream journey through the wild, in search of the answer to one question: 'Where do the swans sleep?'
Your kids follow Felix, a young boy that turned into a swan in his dream and goes on a journey in search of an answer. There are 9 beautifully illustrated pages, each one with music and audio narration but no text. Although we like the concept, we found that the narration is quite long for each image and wished there would be more pictures to keep the kids engaged.
The end is open ended and calls on your kids imagination! If you need a hint to help your kids … Swan build a nest underneath waterside trees! Overall… A well illustrated picture book app with stunning illustrations for an adventure in dreamland!
