View Full Version : Recommend me story / nursery rhyme apps, please

As title. I am clueless about these things, but I have some tech-savvy parents and would like to suggest some Apple and Android apps to them as another way of their child accessing stories and rhymes. Thanks for any advice :)

Cbeebies has a playtime app and a storytime app (http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/help/faqs) (there's info in the relevant section of the grown up's FAQ). There's a Gruffalo app (http://appsplayground.com/2014/08/28/gruffalo-games-app/) and a Room on the Broom (http://appsplayground.com/2013/10/07/julia-donaldsons-room-broom-gets-app/) one (both made by the studio that made the film). Beebies ones are free, Gruffalo and Broom ones are paid for (about £2.99 each, but they are good!). There are also some paid for Axel Scheffler apps (http://appsplayground.com/tag/axel-scheffler/) about too.

If they use youtube, the Super Simple Songs channel has some great (if a little bit American sounding) classic songs with lovely accompanying videos.

Older kids who can use a PC I have always recommended Orsinal (http://www.ferryhalim.com/orisinal/) web games which are utterly beautiful, quite simple, and good for practising some mouse skills. (Also insanely addictive!)
