Snoopy is one of those characters you just remember so well from childhood. I’ve always been a fan of that crazy canine. Henry is just starting to get into him. Being the holiday season, he’s been starting to see all the specials that we grew up with. I think he’s starting to fall for that adorable pup.
We had been contacted about this new iPad book app that Storypanda was releasing, Snoopy’s You Can Be Anything, and I was excited to get to sit down with him to check it out. He was immediately excited to see Snoopy trying out so many poses on the front page. You know Snoopy, he’s not afraid to try anything!
The app is cute. You have the option to flip through the book on your own and read or you can have the book read aloud. We really like this feature since Henry can’t read yet. We both love to reading to him, but sometimes during the crazy dinnertime rush, it’s great when a book can read itself.
The book itself has such a great premise. It goes through and shows all the different things Snoopy can be, it’s all up to him. A fantastic lesson for young children to be taught. Again, you know Snoopy, so he has some great poses and looks for each type of job.
Another feature of the app was being able to edit the story and save your own book. You can go through and add names, adjust the colors of certain items within the page, and even the text! So you can really build your very own story. Once you are done you can save it and even share it with your friends and family. It allows you to share your story on Twitter, Facebook, or email. I can see Henry and his cousin swapping stories back and forth.
The app is great, especially for any Snoopy fans out there. I can’t wait to see what types of stories Henry starts to build. I think for $2.99 your kids can find a lot of enjoyment out of it. It’s just an easy download away at the app store. It’s a fun app for kids 4-8. Henry didn’t have any problems using it at age 3.
I’m happy to say that 2 of my readers and win their own copy of the app, compliments of Storypanda!
