The Caterpillar and the Ladybug is a delightful app book all about how the caterpillar becomes a butterfly. The app provides for a read-to-me (with highlighted words), or read-myself version to choose from. Nearly all the pages have some form of interactivity for a child to enjoy. The drawings are delightful, with a whimsical aspect to them. The story is read by a child, which adds a nice touch.
On the opening page, there is a “more” button which takes you to a page that will allow you to turn on/off the highlighted text. In addition there is a “Learn More About Metamorphosis!” link that when tapped, brings you to a page that shows a picture and text explaining the cycle of a ladybug and butterfly.
All-in-all a warm, engaging and educational experience.
Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
