Families are loving our new Pretend & Play iPad apps, based off the similar Pretend & Play interactive books. Since kids love them so much, we’ve created a new way for them to interact with their favorite scenes from the books and apps – coloring sheets!
Our On the Farm, Firefighter and Toolbox/Birdhouse coloring sheets can be downloaded here for your children:
For parents not familiar with our Pretend & Play series, the books and apps are both engaging storytelling tools that reinforce the idea that learning can be fun.
Pretend & Play Farm: Book | App
Children are transported to Farmer Jack’s farm for a tour that includes a variety of adorable farm animals. From the smallest field mouse hiding in the barn’s hayloft to the tall brown horse peeking over his stall door, every animal has something to say. Children learn about animals as they select the correct animal to complete the image and also engage in small counting games—such as how many butterflies can they see among the cows—helping to build numeracy skills.
Pretend & Play Firefighter: Book | App
A captivating introduction to the heroic tasks that firefighters perform. Children assist the app’s firefighter in saving the day by choosing the correct element for putting out a kitchen fire, saving pets from a burning home, and removing a fallen tree. The app imparts elementary fire safety in addition to an understanding of some of the many elements used by real-life firefighters.
Pretend & Play Toolbox: Book | App
Immersed in backyard fun, youngsters help to build a new birdhouse for Birdy. By selecting the correct tools—a saw, hammer, screwdriver, or pliers—to complete the on-screen images, app users learn the different jobs that each tool performs as well as how each job is important to completing the project.
