Edsel McFarlan’s New Car By Auryn Inc.
The app is based on the print edition book “Edsel McFarlan’s New Car” written by Max Holechek, illustrated by Darrell Toland. This is a very cute and all true story about the “phases” kids go through. Edsel loves cars. And now the whole neighborhood knows! The pictures were bright and almost seem to pop off the page (iPad). When a word is spoken during narration the word is then highlighted (see middle picture), which helps with word recognition. This app runs $2.99 and is compatible with the iPad.
A great feature of this app has is customization. You can use your voice to record the pages, so when your child reads the story, they will hear your voice.
There are three ways to read this book: Read to Me, Auto Play and Read Myself.
