Free Collins Big Cat apps

Collins Big Cat apps 

I was alerted to the Collins Big Cat apps via Dizzy C's Little Book Blog.

I have downloaded only two at this stage, but I will definitely download the rest as well.
They are very cute and interactive stories, which can be enjoyed by a toddler, as well as school-going children when they start reading by themselves.

I especially love the option to create your own stories with your own voice.
We are having fun already making our own story creations.

"Developed in partnership with Shoo Fly, all  8 apps are free to download until September 2013, and not only support a love of reading but the development of creative writing skills too. 
They feature:
  • an animated, interactive version of the book
  • a record your own narration feature
  • a story creator tool - make your own book using characters, key vocabulary and 
    • backgrounds from the original story
  • support for parents to get the most out of the book."

  1. Thanks for the shout out, Karen.
    Glad you found them :)


  2. These look like fun. Following you on Network Blogs because you're local... and finding local bloggers is a lot tougher than it looks!


I love to hear your comments :D
