All My Love (for you)HD is an app by CotCotCot-apps.com. Originally written in French, it has recently been translated into English. The author, Dominique Maes, is also credited with creating the unique artwork that accompanies the story. The basic premise seems simple enough: a man (complete with a heart for a head) attempts to explain how much he loves his child. As the story unfolds, each page becomes another possible way for him to express the depths of that love. Quoting from the story, “As for me, I want to make you laugh, bring you joy.” His quest leads him into treetops, under the ocean, and into strange lands; this devoted father would travel anywhere to find the perfect gift.
There are options available, including language (English or French), narration (on or off),
and music (a clarinet playing softly or muted). A section for grown-ups provides links to special pages, including a Record you Voice option (available soon) and a secret way to insert your child’s drawings or writing into the library. This page also provides a
connection for social media and the App Store, so its use must be monitored.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked-
Some of the elements of All My Love (for you)HD are reminiscent of other outstanding children’s stories. Its theme of a father’s unending love reminds me of “Guess How Much I Love You”. Its use of scary monsters that are tamed reminds me of “Where the Wild Things Are,” and its intricate and clever illustrations remind me of “Jamberry.” Each page is a panorama, filled with characters, animations, and unexpected surprises. It’s hard to explain, but there is a dream-like quality in the way the story is told.
All My Love (for you)HD is not for everyone. It requires an investment of time, thought, and emotion in order to appreciate its content fully. I’ve read the story more than five times, and each time, I find something I hadn’t seen before. There are riddles and hidden objects on every page, waiting to be discovered. In the end, though, the message is clear: the greatest gift of all is a parent’s love. Fun Educational Apps likes All My Love (for you) HD for all these reasons, so we made it our latest Top Pick.
