Inspector Peckit - a classic story book for kids about a detective pigeon’s search for a little girl’s lost knit bag by the author of Corduroy, Don Freeman. A perfect bedtime tale.(iPad Lite version, by Auryn Apps)
iOS iPad Education
A detective, who is also a Parisian pigeon, searches the city for a little girl's lost purse only to discover it in a rather embarrassing place. Another of Mr. Freeman's pigeons flying high and low, a bereted and eager Peckit (""at your beck and call"") flits from the rooftops of Paris, through the Luxembourg Gardens, to an awning at a sidewalk café, all in search of a little girl's lost knit bag.
Though temporarily misled by a boy's ball of kite string, a startled diner's plate of spaghetti, and the puffy tip of a poodle's fancy tail, the resolutely debonair inspector finally tracks down the goods in the Eiffel Tower where his mate is using the bag for a nest. The story has a beautiful ending and is sure to put a smile on your child’s face.
Inspector Peckit is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn Inc. and is based on Don Freeman’s book by the same name.
▶ KEY EDUCATIONAL THEMES:
-Take your child through a tour of Paris as the story unfolds – Few French words and a few more beautiful landmarks of Paris.
-Teach them about the value of returning things that belong to other, even if they like it very much.
▶ EXTEND THE LEARNING! ASK YOUR CHILD:
-Name 5 places where you have spotted pigeons/birds
-Name things around the house which look similar but have two different purposes
▶ ENHANCE CREATIVITY BY PERSONALIZING THE STORY:
- You can write your own version of the text for the book
- Personalize the narration: kids or parents can re-record the narration to make it their own!
▶ DEVELOP READING SKILLS WITH THESE LITERACY TOOLS:
- Image and word association vocabulary builder - when an image on the screen is touched, the associated word is spoken and the written word is displayed.
- Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted.
- Touch a word to hear it being spoken in “Read Myself” mode (almost like “training wheels” for new readers)
▶ THREE WAYS TO READ THE BOOK:
1) "Read to me" - Listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects until they are ready to move to the next page.
2) "Auto Play" - same as "Read to Me" except the page advances automatically once the narration is finished. Useful for those long car rides when you want the child to have a complete book experience.
3) "Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud.
The lite version contains the first six pages of the original app with all the functionalities. The user also gets an overview of rest of the pages in thumbnail format.
