AASL Recommended App: Books: Goldilocks and Little Bear

Last summer, the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) announced their Best Apps for Teaching and Learning 2017. The apps encourage qualities such as creativity and collaboration, and encourage discovery and curiosity.

Goldilocks and Little Bear is an app that tells the familiar story but with a twist. It also tells the story of Little Bear, who ends up exploring Goldilocks family home. “Enjoy each stories in parallel, individually, or however you’d like – you can toggle between the two at any point. The app includes beautiful artwork, stunning animation, ingenious, playful forms of interactivity, original music, voice work and sound effects, and more.”

Tech for Kids has a review of the app you can read here, and School Library Journal also reviewed the app. Their article includes this link to a video by Steve Burke, who created the music for the app, which gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the process!
