The first-rate talent behind Tip Tap Toe reads like a “who’s who” list. For starters, the original story was crafted by internationally-acclaimed storyteller, author and literacy educator Lesley Dowding. As noted by the New Zealand Guild of Storytellers: “A story is given up to the listener as they enter it and they can be transferred to other worlds. They can walk through walls, fly like Pegasus or enter a room through a keyhole, especially when Lesley tells the tales”.

The app offers gorgeous, hand-painted images by renowned artist, photographer and art teacher Sarah Sampson. In addition, the perfectly-suited original music in Tip Tap Toe was composed by Joel Gennari.

 

Tip Tap Toe Offers:

* Touch-responsive pages, which give kids the feeling that they’re truly immersed in the story
* Numerous touch-and-drag objects, including some that are hidden so that kids can enjoy exploration and discovery
* A “read it myself” option that allows kids to take over the narration, which is excellent for helping them develop their literacy skills and reading confidence in a relaxed, pressure-free manner

 

Tip Tap Toe 1.0 is $0.99, and is available through the App Store.

New iOS App Aims to Teach Children Empathy Towards Animals

Sacramento Non-Profit RedRover has launched E-Books for Empathy 1.0, an innovative app designed to help kids ages 7 to 11 practice empathy skills. Parents and educators can work with children by using questions included in the story to help kids identify the behaviors and emotions of animal and human characters and imagine how the characters are feeling, skills necessary for empathy.

RedRover helps animals and people in crisis from all over the country, and seeks to enhance the relationships people have with animals as a means to prevent animal suffering and neglect. The organization’s CEO, Nicole Forsyth, puts it like this:

“The first step to preventing animal cruelty is to help people have better relationships with animals. Once you understand an animal, you can feel empathy for an animal and naturally begin to treat that animal better. It is important to learn these valuable skills as children, as it not only will effect their interactions with animals all their life, but builds empathy skills for people as well.”

Following a successful Kickstarter in 2014 that raised more than $19,000, RedRover is bringing the program into more classrooms and homes – using everyday mobile technology that will make learning empathy skills easy and fun for kids – and their parents and teachers.

E-Books for Empathy 1.0 is $2.99, and available for iOS devices through the App Store. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.
