I Love You Too – Ziggy Marley
Celebrate the love that exists between parent and child with this song-turned-book-turned-app by Ziggy Marley from his Grammy Award-winning album Family Time. This interactive book app allows children to turn pages while reading, and also navigate to their favorite scenes of the story. Kids can tap words and images to see the word and hear it read. Text is highlighted as the story is read, encouraging new and emerging readers to follow along. The menu offers four options: Read to Me, Read it Myself, Auto Play, and Sing Along. Marley both reads and sings the story in the last two options.
Kids and parents can also record themselves reading and use the recording as the default narration, or even share it with other loved ones. Adults will appreciate parental controls that keep kids in the app. The illustrations are bright and colorful. Overall, a cheerful and happy storybook app to be shared with your little ones over and over again. It’s always a good time to say, “I love you!”
