App Description

*** iKids Award Winner, Best eBook *** Sid the Science Kid Read & Play is packed with stories and fun activities aimed at helping kids develop early science exploration skills. It features two story books, jokes, games, sing along music videos, coloring pages and more!

Story books and activities include:
•“The Trouble with Germs”:
Follow along as Sid discovers why he has to wash his hands to get rid of germs. While Sid can’t see them, his mom shows him a picture through a powerful microscope to show him that those itty bitty things do exist and can make him sick.

•“What’s That Smell?”:
Sid finds out that smells, while invisible, are molecules that can pass through the air even without wind. That’s what allows him to smell his dad’s favorite pancakes, flowers and even his baby brother’s Zeke’s diaper (ewwww!).

•Sing Along Music Videos:
Parents and children can sing along to songs from the show!

•Coloring Book:
Choose different scenes to color and save to share with friends and family or print out.

•I Sense:
In this fun interactive game, practice what you know about senses by identifying traits of different objects based on how they feel, smell, sound and look.

•Sticker Book:
Kids select from three separate scenes with different objects and characters for little ones to build their own scene. They can be saved to the photo album as well to share with friends and family.
•Spot the Difference:
What’s different in each image? Kids choose from two different scenes to see if you have an eagle eye and can spot what’s different between each image.

•Narration Options:
Choose from Read to Me, Read to Myself and Auto Play.

Sid Read & Play was developed by zuuka in partnership with PBS KIDS and The Jim Henson Company, the producer of the groundbreaking TV series Sid the Science Kid.
