Based on the hit PBS KIDS TV series, this animated story is part of iRead With, a new read-aloud program created to foster language development and help preschoolers get ready to read.

iRead With animated stories invite parents to read to their child and are designed to make children talk and participate in the shared reading activity.

Parents follow a prompting system that encourages them to start a conversation with the child, by asking questions about the story and the world around us. Children become actively involved in the narrative and get stimulated in a multi-sensory level.

My Thoughts:

This is another quality book app from iRead With. I really like these
apps. They are well done and my kids love them. The feature that let’s
you animate your own story is also really fun for my kids to experiment
with.  The story is cute and engaging.  It’s a great way to spend a few minutes with my kids.

This book is about Caillou’s first play. My oldest daughter recently
participated in her first play, so she really liked this app.  The
animations are simple enough to enhance the story without detracting
from it. It’s an app I can feel good about letting my kids use.

If your child likes Caillou, they’ll love this app.
