Good night, Owl | iPad storybook app in rhyme for kids
A tale in rhyme form – that’s how the app developers describe their interactive iPad storybook app for kids. With “Good night, owl”, kids can jump into the role of the owls prey at night and spy on the two owls, who fight over the same thing – the prey.
At times when kids are already fast asleep at night, the owls are wide awake and also very hungry. It is therefore quite comfortable for the owl, when the prey comes passing by – what a delicious surprise.
The whole storybook in rhyme, is aimed at first-readers and first-listeners aged 4-6. The professional audio response does bring the rhyming stories across very nicely. It is good to know, that a lot of effort has been put into this app and nothing was saved on.
This app also offers many other languages, such as German, French, Italian, Catalan and Spanish.
The app has been updated, which now allows you to record your own voice, as many times as you like, so the story can be read out to your kids with your very own voice. This is a really nice option that we’re always happy to discover in kids storybook apps, even if this was not neccessarily needed in this wonderfully recorded kids app.
The rather short story has been illustrated with 11 interactive pages, in which kids can not only meet both of the owls, but also a frog and a cat on their daily night walk.
Individual elements can be moved or move automatically. The app “good night owl” is quite different to the usual, rather colourful storybooks for kids, as this app has an especially dark setting in comparison.
We’re still missing things like a little game or some printable color-in pictures/templates for kids, especially as the story is pretty straight forward with it’s 11 pages, which is why we cannot give this app the full 5 stars. Nevertheless, this app is already optimized for the iPad mini and all new iPad’s with a retina display, which you don’t get to see from other apps yet. This app is also a great present for every owl lover and collector.
