I've just purchased an IPad, and we will be taking a long haul flight next week with our 18month old DD. I'm looking for suggestions for good toddler apps and/or where to download things for her to play with/view on the plane.
** I posted this in the 12-24 month section, but thought people in the general section may have ideas as well, so have re-posted here.
Sound touch is great. My DD loves it. You click on an animal/ object depending on the category you are in, and it makes the appropriate sound and shows you a photo. There are about 5 or 6 different photos for each animal/ object. There is a free lite version but I was more than happy to buy the full app.
Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
