App Description

Award-winning author Bonny Becker and artist Shari Halpern have created an interactive book of wiggly animals and bugs to tickle children ages 1 to 4. The gentle, rhythmic text, read by the author, appeals to a toddler's ear. The brightly-colored artwork, created with paper, cloth and paint, encourages children to touch. "Did you ever have a chick nestle in your lap? How did it feel? Puffy. Peeping. Fluffy. Sleeping."

Every story page has animals in motion, such as a flapping moth, wiggly puppy, or snorting horse. Touching the animal restarts the motion. Tapping the puzzle piece, children can solve 4-piece jigsaw puzzles based on the current page. Pages can be read by the author with word highlighting, or an adult or older child can read the text to the child. Pages are turned by swiping across the page or by tapping orange arrows.

Bonny Becker is author of the best-selling “A Visitor for Bear,” winner of the E.B. White Read Aloud Award and a selection for Oprah Winfrey’s Children’s Book List. “The Quiet Way Home” was selected for the educational program, Before Five in A Row, based on outstanding children’s books for ages 2-4. In all, Bonny has published 12 books for children.

Shari Halpern studied illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design and is the illustrator of many books for young readers, including "Hush, Little Baby" and the "I Love" series written by Philemon Sturges. Shari lives in New Jersey with her husband, a puppet maker, and three children.
