Andrew Answers Book App: The Story
Andrew Answers starts with a teacher asking a question to Andrew.
Teacher asks: Andrew, What’s a word that begins with ‘N’?
When Andrew answers the question, he says “NO.” And “NEVER.” Although his answers are correct, they’re not quite the answers the teacher was looking for. After several attempt, the teacher sends Andrew to the next authority, the principal office. Andrew sticks to his humour and answers and moves on to the mayor’s office and finally ends up at the White House.
In addition to a great story, Andrew Answer story book app includes 2 unique features:
• Tip iPad or iPhone screen to help Andrew through two mazes, one to the principal’s office – and the other to help parents find a parking space at the school
• Touch screen technology extends the story and art: click on his teacher’s apple to take bites out of it, tap on the goldfish bowl for a big surprise, and more multi-touch animations.
In Andrew Answers, when teachers or parents ask for a word beginning with A, B, C, or X,Y, Z it is best to choose wisely to avoid trouble. Grownups might not always understand or listen to the kids the way they should… Andrew Answers shows that you can learn through humour and express ideas. Be confident with your ideas, select the right combination of word and you will get all the attention, especially if you can express your feeling using each letter of the alphabet in the right order to the highest authority, then you are a star, a genius!
Kids at Fun Educational Apps really liked Andrew Answers story book app. This great book app brought up interesting discussions at home. The kids were puzzled to see that all Andrew Answers were right but not understood. It allowed the kids to think about the importance of words and how to use them in the right way.
It was also a great lesson for us grown up where we quite often expect a certain answer from our kids. If the answer is not in line with what we expect, we quickly dismiss them and don’t listen carefully. As Alan Katz says: “Kids want to be right. They want to give the right answers. ANDREW ANSWERS hits on just this idea and expresses the importance of a kid feeling confident about their decisions and choices. They’ll come to recognize and enjoy the pattern of Andrew’s answers and will start creatively anticipating the words Andrew will say in correct response to the adults’ questions.”
