The Interactive Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Age Level: Ages 8-12, Ages: 12 +

By far one of the least dark app created by iClassics Productions, I found this “app book” to be pure pleasure. Filled with tappable pages, which bring to life the stunning illustrations, not to mention the appropriate page turning music! If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan you will love this book. If you have never taken the time to enjoy one of his 54 books in the series, be ready to become a fast fan.

I suggest a dictionary for some of the words, more used during the mid 18th century. Doing so can take on to a whole new level of literacy. You may just end up with an accomplished writer on your hands!

You will find a sketch book at the end of the story. Swipe your finger over the drawings and see characters and objects come to life. I personally found this section inspiring, lighting my desire to pick up a pencil and some water colors. I can only imagine the effect it would create in our young scholars and possibly budding artists.

One of my favorite aspects of this app is the bio on Arthur Conan Doyle. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and came away with a deeper look into this remarkable man.

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
