Our THIRD (Good) Free App of the Day for today is a VERY cute ebook about a young girl who uses her imagination to go looking for pirate treasure with the help of an octopus, dolphin, turtle. What could be more fun that that?
Penelope The Purple Pirate has a number of key features we look for in a iOS ebook but is a native iPhone app, meaning it will play fine on the iPad, but with reduced graphical clarity.
Adventurous children whose imaginations know no bounds will find a kindred spirit in Penelope. Come along on her journey as her bedroom opens up into world of pirates, the open sea, buried treasure and trusted friends. Discussion questions, ideas for additional interaction for the pre-school classroom and home, and fun facts about the sea creatures in the story are included in the app.
- high fidelity, full-color illustrations that stay true to the original print book
- high quality audio recording
- highlighted text corresponds with audio - each word highlights as it is read to help new readers understand the connection between words and sounds - excellent for beginning readers or curious pre-readers.
- turn pages with an easy swipe

- animated elements and audio hot spots for additional levels of interaction
