The BigHeds’ Adventure London 2012 is an entertaining children’s book app about a family traveling to London to see the Olympics. It is written by Tumeka Harris and is full of good lessons and educational travel information for young children.
The BigHeds is a book series about a very diverse and colorful family and this story is about how they learn how to pack and travel on an airplane for the first time. It is going to be loved most by kids under the age of 8 years old.
As for the story, illustrations, and lessons? I thought this app was very well done. The plot: Grandpa BigHed is taking the family to London to see the Olympics. He tells everyone to pack. Some of the BigHeds just want to play, but one of them is the voice of reason and they end up packing what they need. Then, the story takes you through the airport and on the plane, explaining what the different stops are, what a terminal is, and what to expect.
It is a very informative and fun story. The illustrations are bright and keep Lizzie’s attention. It is a children’s book app and each page is slightly animated. You can choose “read to me” or “read myself.” If you choose to have the app read to you, there are different voices for each character. Each of the characters has a different accent, which I really appreciated.
Here is a one of my favorite pages just to give you a sample of the story. I love that Grampa BigHed tells everyone to stay close by him in the big airport. That is some of the best advice for children to learn!
This is currently available for iPads, iPhones, and the iPod Touch. For a fun and educational children’s book iPad app, check out BigHeds! It is $2.99 – a great deal for a children’s book.
