What's the App About:
The two dog friends, Mars and Barbara, are back! After teaching your kids how to count to ten, Barbara is now using a magic wand capable of turning Mars any color of the rainbow.
After being introduced to the dogs, readers see one color per page. For each color, Barbara waves the magic wades and Mars changes color. By tapping on Mars, kids can see her change color! When the name of the color is mentioned, the text displays in that color and if you just tap the speech icon next to the name of the color, the narrator states the color. Each dog has a speech bubble that can be tapped to hear him "speak". Yips, yaps, ruffs, and bowwows.
For your kids to learn what other things are of that color simply slide to the next page and tap on the arrow to watch a cute video.
For example, for red kids see a red strawberry, red stop sign, red ball … and red dog! For orange … orange carrots, orange flower, orange jelly beans and … an orange dog!
Kids go over all the colors of the rainbow till Barbara changes Mars into a multicoloured dog with the all the colours of the rainbow! A great way to review all the colors!
What Fun Educational Apps Liked
A Rainbow Called Mars iBook is appropriate for our youngest children. By using visual and audio kids can easily learn and remember all colors of the rainbow. If your kids love dog, it’s an extra incentive that will for sure get all their interest.
We liked that the book gives example of things that are of the same color. The pages are simple and all interactive features are easy to find. The speech bubbles are multicolored, so toddlers intuitively know to tap them to elicit the sound effects.
In A Nutshell-
A Rainbow Called Mars will appeal to young children. The use of dogs to learn and visualise all the colors is a fun way to engage your little ones. As a teaching tool, the book definitely helps your little ones to go over all the colors of the rainbow!
