Jumping Pages just released a great new book for kids available for your iPad that tells the story of one frustrated house! The clever, rhyming, musical, and interactive story teaches kids of all ages, and parents too, to respect the home. The story is narrated by Pat Schroeder who is a former Congresswoman and presidential candidate! Throughout the story, the house and its appliances go on strike against its errant family to win respect.
- Original story that teaches self respect
- Highlighted text that helps you follow along
- A fun way to motivate your child’s learning
Kids can activate dozens of activities throughout the “The House That Went On Strike” book including calling the house to strike, tossing bread from a toast that bops dad’s head, sliding the boy and girl down the steps, and prompting the family to finally clean the house. The goal of this storybook app is to teach children about respecting their house in a fun and meaningful way. By showing how the home and objects inside might respond to a messy, children can be shown a reason why chores are important and motivation to help out around the home. Creative director Rania Ajami stated, “Giving life, personalities and feelings to the house and appliances allows kids to learn appreciation for the home in an interactive, sympathetic and playful manner.”
You can find “The House That Went On Strike” original storybook app available in the iTunes store. It is compatible with all iPads that have an iOS of 4.3 or later. The app retails for $2.99.
