Meet Today’s Developers:
Zanibooks – Creates interactive books for kids ages 3 – 10 which are enriched with fun and educational mini-games. The apps are very interactive with sound and animation. I have done a couple reviews and my daughter is absolutely in love with these ebooks which you will hear about shortly. You can follow Zanzibooks on facebook.
L’Escapadou – We have several of these apps and all this time I never looked into who the developers were until I wrote this. I was very happy to find out that they are homeschooling parents inspired by the Montessori Method. Mom and Dad do the design graphics, Dad does the programing and the daughters do the testing. That is awesome. They make the apps for iPad and iPhone. You can follow L’Escapadou on facebook.

Writing Wizard – Kids Learn To Write Letters – I am super amazed with this app as it give letter tracing a whole new twist. This is the first tracing app that my daughter has showed so much interest in. This app helps the child learn how to trace. This app is customizable to the child’s needs. As you trace the letters there is animated stickers once the letter is formed if you bump them the stickers fall and the child can tap on the animation to reform the letter. My daughter was fascinated with the different animations. It also gives the letter sound which I absolutely love. Your child not only learns the letter formations but the sounds too.
