A Note from Mercer Mayer:
“I am so pleased to be invited to participate in the AAP’s ‘Get Caught Reading’ campaign and to help bring awareness to this outstanding initiative and its mission. I also want to celebrate how today’s technology is providing even more options to engage children in the joy of learning to read, and acknowledge the wonderful job that Silver Dolphin Books and app developer John Sansevere have done in creating an extraordinary and multi-dimensional digital experience of my original book, Little Critter’s The Trip.”
For one week, during Children’s book Week, May 13–19, 2013, Silver Dolphin Books is reducing the price of The Trip – Little Critter Reading Adventure app from $3.99 to just $0.99, available worldwide through iTunesBarnes& Noble, Amazon, and Google Play
About the Apps!
A National Parenting Center’s 2013 Seal of Approval recipient, children are invited to travel along with Little Critter and his family on an action-packed road trip in The Trip – Little Critter Reading Adventure app. Kids can help Little Critter choose the route the family will take to explore the countryside, the city, the beach and more; fix the car when it breaks down; move a horse stuck in the middle of the road; feed the seagulls; and even find time to grab a hot dog. All this while playing lots of games with Little Sister along the way to pass the time!
Recommended for ages three to seven, the app emphasizes basic pre-school and early elementary curriculum and incorporates an inventory collection and selection feature designed to build critical problem-solving skills; alphabet flashcards hidden on every screen teach and reinforce letter recognition; and successful completion of six puzzles—including sequence and matching games—unlock six collectible gems used to play an arcade-style game. Other features include text highlighting, visual interactive item clues and professional audio narration and dramatization, which all help to keep non-readers engaged with the story.
A complementary app, The Trip - Little Critter GamePak ($3.99), includes over 50 fun and engaging activities featuring Little Critter and introduces the Company’s new Digistix™—interactive, animated stickers with fun sound effects.
Appy Award-winner John R. Sansevere (Little Critter: Where is My Frog) is the producer of both apps.
