“Think of this app as an inside-out experience, where you make the narrative.” —Children’s Technology Review

“Pinch and zoom to explore five worlds within worlds—each more visually stunning than the last.” —Boston Magazine

“Wiesner’s endeavor is unusual in that it’s an entirely original creation.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

Not quite a book, not quite an app, Spot is a visual adventure. Pinch-and-zoom through the spot on the back of a ladybug to begin exploring the five fantastical worlds. Continue to pinch-and-zoom through glowing hotspots to dive deeper into five interconnected worlds. You sit in the driver’s seat of this storytelling experience: one filled with interesting characters and beautifully illustrated settings, ready to be part of your story.

Spot was devised by David Wiesner, three-time winner of the Caldecott Medal, the honor awarded to the most distinguished American picture book for children.

Worlds to explore:
-tiny world
-space world
-underwater world
-cat world
-robot world

Be sure to download Spot’s accompanying multi-touch companion e-book, David Wiesner’s Spot: A Parent and Educator Guide, to enhance this imaginative experience. The guide includes creative storytelling prompts for parents and unique writing and classroom activities for teachers.
