storybook app for kids
“Awwwesome” storybook app for kids all the way through. Cherry Tree is a beautiful illustrated picture-book for the iPad and iPhone.
The story is somewhat different to the usual stories for kids.
This app tells a story, which is mostly based on the Japanese culture, but not in the least seeming too strange.
The story is about a little girl named Miyu, who one day, gets given a cherry tree by her parents. The tree is planted at a very inconvenient place: on the top of a high-rise building, where usually small gardens on the top of the roofs are layed out in Japanese Cities. Miyu lives in one of those buildings with her family and her cat – and from now on, also with her cherry tree.
Kids will witness the growing of the tree through all four seasonal changes. In Spring, the tree will start to grow leaves, in the summer, it will yield fruit and blossom to it’s fullest, in autmn the leaves will start to shed and in the winter, the tree will fully defoliate. Kids can collect and pick all the cherries of the tree by themselves in this app, the cherries can be placed inside a basket. This is a great interaction for kids, whilst hearing or reading this lovely story.
Once the tree defoliates, kids get confronted with the subject of mortality during this story.
Certainly not by chance, the cherry blossom is a symbol of growth and decay, from ancient times in Japanese culture. The subject however, remains an approach to this issue, as the cherry tree can be saved after all.
The subject of mortality gets raised again, when Miyu gets a chance to sit underneath her cherry tree again, after many decades, when she is already grey and old.
This kids storybook app is a very special and interesting story, which is very touching, calm and empathic. It is a very philosophical story, with some charming sounds and animated details such as, the bed sheets, which are waving in the wind, and the text which is also uniquely presented on each page.
What makes this story so special and unique is the every day happening, it is a remarkable story with an educational aspekt for kids to understand nature and the circle of life!
