Arlington, Texas (PressExposure) February 07, 2011 -- Spirit-led Designs announces the launch of Melody Kitty, a children's storybook app for the iPad.
Based on the delightful children's book, Miss Melody Kitty's Daydream Adventures, this animated, audio and musical app is a real hit with children. It has brought joy to children in over 16 countries, teaching them about the benefits and rewards of helping others.
A professor from Oklahoma State University says "My 3.5 year old granddaughter loved the interaction sounds (particularly the airplane which she played over and over) and song. She figured it out quickly and went through the book on her own. She was even humming the song. It is amazing how young children pick up on the iPad and this book is very effective... A Real Hit!" (He rated it 5 stars in the App Store.)
Carisa, at digital-storytime, in her review says: "This book is a sweet story written by a small family-friendly developer. The app also contains an original song by Diane Eason called, "It's a Happy Day!" The song is very sweet and will appeal to young children. I really liked some of the simple animations and sounds, especially the flying birds and insects. The page where tapping on a cloud makes two birds play hide and seek behind it, is particularly cute. This was also my son's favorite interaction to play with, since it sounds like the birds are having a little scuffle behind the clouds when they "hide" behind it together. Ultimately, I would recommend this book because it's a wonderful developer with a lot of heart."
Jennifer comments, "My 2 year old is begging me to read the book to him again and again. Both of my boys loved the illustrations, they love sitting on my lap and pointing at all of the pictures, trying to find things in the pictures, and noticing all of the critters on the page. I love this book! The story is about Miss Melody Kitty, who loves to daydream. She does not get so absorbed in her daydreams that she cannot help other people...Miss Melody Kitty is a great example of compassion. Miss Melody's new friends help her understand that it's good to be the kitty God made her. What a great thing for all of our kids!
Miss Melody Kitty's Daydream Adventures is also an e-book and will soon be available at the "Magicblox" digital library, where children can turn the pages as the book is being read to them. Or they can read it themselves and also hear Miss Melody Kitty's favorite song, "It's a Happy Day", sung by author, Diane Eason.
