This is the second app I’ve reviewed that has come from Loud Crow and I’m beginning to think they might be geniuses at capturing the essence of kid-lit and bringing it to the next level. In my first review of Benjamin Bunny I appreciated how they were respectful of the fact that it was a classic and would not hold up well to over the top animation, but with Sandra Boynton’s Moo, Baa, La La La they added so much zany interactive fun I loved it as much as my son did.
From the opening page to the end this app is so much fun. Sandra Boynton re-illustrated and re-coloured her original book just for this app so it really feels fresh. My son laughed out loud at the slingshot cats being chased by dogs and losing their collars. I liked the last little duck (just keep clicking those ducks until he arrives) with the unexpected ‘quack’. There is so much to interact with I could go on and on, but I think the fun is discovering them for yourself.
If you like Sandra Boynton I think you’ll agree this is a great app to capture the fun she brings to her board books. As with most apps there is a read-to-me and read-yourself option which is great for pre-readers and beginning readers. I see there are three other Sandra Boynton titles also available including one of our family favourites, The Going To Bed Book.
I can’t wait to see more from these Loud Crow guys. I think Sandra herself said it best, “It is such a cool enterprise.” (Click through to check out more of her thoughts as well).
