We’re incredibly proud that our Jack and the Beanstalk app is the recipient of a Silver Honor in the Mobile Apps category from Parents’ Choice! Silver Honors are given to excellent products that “are designed to entertain and help children develop universally ethical attitudes, and rigorous standards and skills”, and Jack and the Beanstalk joins our other fairy tale apps, The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood (all recipients of the Gold Award) in being recognised by Parents’ Choice.
Here’s what Parents’ Choice had to say about Jack and the Beanstalk:
“In this very Nosy Crow take on the childhood classic, the story begins true to its origins – Jack’s mom tells him they don’t have any money, so he must sell Daisy, the family cow … Readers are presented with a treasure trove of interactivity. Prompted to touch a blinking blue button, characters speak and react – with smartly written lines and voices that are well directed and performed. Jack and his sidekick Mouse explore the giant’s castle, hunting for the keys that unlock the different colored doors. A series of nine playful challenges from simple to more complex include pattern recognition, following instruction, manual dexterity, problem solving and more uses a range of skills and technology … Once again, Nosy Crow delivers a fairy tale squarely into the 21st century.”
