The interactive Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Age Level: Ages: 12 +

The timeless tale of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving, comes to life in this interactive app book by iClassic Productions. Filled with tappable pages, which bring to life the stunning illustrations, not to mention the appropriate page turning music. It's magnificent!

I have to shamefully admit that I had never taken it upon myself to actually read this story. Feeling satisfied that I knew the tale, based on my experience in a movie theater. This was a mistake I am glad that I remedied. This piece of literature, not the author, should not be replaced by a lesser rendition. Unless of course it is kept complete in all it's writing, accompanied by that magic that iClassic Productions adds to it.

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 Washington Irving. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and came away with a deeper look into this remarkable man.
