Simon Says “App”

Seymour Science, “the dean of children’s science writers,” has launched his first mobile app. SCIENCE FUN TO GO features in-app purchase of original eBooks for kids on both the iPhone/iTouch/iPad and Android platforms. You can download Simon’s original eBook, FUN FACTS ABOUT PETS, for free-it’s available exclusively for either the NookColor device or the NookKids for iPad app.

The book (which is for ages 4-7) answers  funny questions about favorite household pets–such as: Why do cats go night crazy? Is it true that pot-bellied pigs can open the refrigerator when they are hungry? And why do dogs’ feet sweat? Other pets profiled are: bunnies, goldfish, guinea pigs, hamsters, lizards, parakeets, snakes, and Shetland ponies.

In this NookKids Read to Me book, children can choose to hear the story read aloud (this one by Actress Leslie Carrara of Sesame Street), tap to enlarge text and pinch & stretch to zoom in on pictures.

Seymour Simon’s books have always been a favorite in our house–just the right mix of great photos and interesting text. SCIENCE FUN TO GO brings Simon’s brand of kid-friendly science on the road, and anywhere else kids need to read.
