Timor the Alligator by XG Media

Timor the Alligator is a very short but well crafted book about an alligator that doesn't like to brush his teeth. As a result, he has bad breath and some very dirty looking ivories in his mouth. Interactive but not really animated, this app is a perfect read for youngsters with sight words and a simple but important message about dental hygiene.

The app has easy arrow page turning and nice background music. It is not narrated but my Kindergartner surprised me by being able to read nearly every word by himself when we shared this cute title together. The highlight of this book is the interactivity, including nice sound effects as you tap on items found on every page. You can make Timor Read more …

Does the Queen Brush Her Teeth? by Red Roar Apps

This is a really fun story that is told in the first person by a young girl named Tilly McKnee. She is having tea with the Queen [of England] one rainy day. Suddenly her eyes are drawn to the Queen's teeth and she thinks to herself, "Arghhhhhhhhh the Queen has yellow teeth!" This begins a story where Tilly daydreams about whether or not the Queen brushes her teeth.

Tilly's imagination goes from silly to absurd as she imagines the Queen with tiny servants on ladders in her mouth, people wearing coats made of fur cut off the Queen's teeth and other flights of fancy. The illustrations are colorful and cartoon like in a way that fits the tongue-in-cheek story very well. Almost every Read more …

The Tooth That's on the Loose! by SachManya LLC

Do you have a little one who is loosing teeth? My Kindergartner has fallen in love with this book as his very first tooth has just recently become 'loose' ... but T.B. Wiggly is no ordinary tooth! He is 'on the loose' and wanted by the Tooth Fairy. Why is he wanted? Because he's "gonna leave a hole in you!"

Young children will be enthralled with Wiggly in this story, as they await their own loose teeth and the visits from the 'tooth fairy'. It features nice narration (although it does not highlight along with the voice-over) and a clear, easy-to-read font, along with simple page turn by arrows. No page guide is available, which would be a nice addition to a future update. There is also one Read more …

The Going to Bed Book - Sandra Boynton by Loud Crow Interactive Inc.

The Going to Bed Book is a perfect bedtime read created by Loud Crow, the same developer that made PopOut! The Tale of Peter Rabbit. While it is interactive with subtle 'pop-up' style animations, it is short and accompanied by relaxing piano music that is ideal for settling down at nighttime. The print book, published in 1982, is also a chart topper with hundreds of 5-Star reviews at Amazon.com.

The book has a similar style to the Peter Rabbit ebook with lots of touchable elements that bounce slightly like a true pop-up book. There are also delightful touches, like water faucets that turn on and off, bubbles that float across the page to be popped with a tap, and even a foam that covers the Read more …

Welcome to Highlights Monster Day: Play at Home Game for my Preschooler. It's a new app in the Highlights education series, featuring games on every page that take young pre-readers on a journey from day to night.
