Blue Hat, Green Hat - Boynton
** Children's Technology Review Editor's Choice
“OOPS…” Blue Hat, Green Hat, Sandra Boynton’s famous and funny book, comes alive with sound and zestily ingenious interactivity. This wonderfully clever digital book app will surprise kids and grownups alike. Turkeys may also enjoy it, if they can ever figure out how to turn the dang thing on.
Three earnest animals and one misguided turkey learn colors and clothes. Though admittedly, the turkey never quite gets the hang of it.
“I have a particular fondness for Blue Hat, Green Hat,” says Sandra Boynton. “At age three, my son Devin had a surprisingly hearty laugh for a small person—a laugh that would make everyone else laugh. I created this book long ago specifically to elicit that belly-laugh from him. It was great fun to re-invent this book as an interactive e-book app, collaborating again with my endlessly clever Loud Crow friends. The digital dimension gave us so many terrific opportunities for adding theatrical flair to this spare yet decidedly Vaudeville book.”
Far beyond any e-book experience, the Blue Hat, Green Hat interactive book app has all the magic and appeal of a traditional pop-up book, offering lively interactivity and nifty discovery.
The third Sandra Boynton book app, all of them created in collaboration between Boynton Moo Media along with the award-winning developer Loud Crow Interactive. Blue Hat, Green Hat follows their wonderful top-selling debut, The Going To Bed Book app, and the glorious bestselling Moo, Baa, La La La! app
Touch the animals to prompt them to move and respond. Touch “OOPS” to cause a different surprise on each page. Tilt your device to watch things slide and cascade. Dress the turkey with colorful pop-in/pop-out clothes
Boynton has redrawn and recolored the original illustrations, and also added new touch-animations, for her enormously popular book, Blue Hat, Green Hat
Wonderful resonant and wry narration by British Invasion legend, Billy J. Kramer (acclaimed reader of The Going To Bed Book app) and sound by Boynton & Ford. Includes an original soundtrack, “William Mattel Overture,” a melody for toy crank-guitar, written by Sandra Boynton, performed by Michael Ford
Realistic page turning interactions just like the original board book
“The Big Guy Reads It” with word highlighting to help improve reading skills
Or “I want to read it myself” to hear individual words pronounced with the tap of a finger

When Kalley shows her dad her drawing for a new machine, he is baffled by the confusing collection of hammers, gears, fire, smoke and conveyors. As Kalley explains each part of her invention, the drawing comes to life even as its overall purpose becomes less and less clear to her dad. It is only when Kalley explains the machine’s final component that her master plan to keep her dad from commuting is revealed.
THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY ---------
So, there really is a ‘Kalley’. She really drew a machine. Her dad couldn’t build it. So they made an app out of it instead. Full story at kalleysmachine.com.
► PLAY WITH MACHINES!
Kalley’s Machine was crafted with interactivity as the first priority. Satisfyingly touchable controls put kids in charge of each twist and smash of the machine. Controls come in a wide machiney variety:
With the machine, kids can:
● Smash Stuff
● Inflate Stuff
● Shrink Stuff
● Burn Stuff (or lightly toast it)
● Paint Stuff
● Grab Stuff
● Drop Stuff
● Mold Stuff Into Shapes
● Do A Few Other Things Including...
► MESS WITH CATS!
Kalley’s Machine is a story based on a 4 year-old girl’s drawing. As such, it includes cats. They are completely irrelevant to the story. However, they are way fun to harass.
Tease them. Scare them. Puzzle them. Adore them. We think you’ll love the cats.
► GET YOUR READ ON!
Cuz it’s a story, right? Of course, you can read the story the old-fashioned way. But, to aid new readers, we’ve also included two helpful interactive story features:
● Read-to-Me, narrated by Kalley and her dad with highlighted words.
● Touch-to-Read, where words are spoken when they are touched.
► TRY TO LEARN!
Honestly, we designed this story to be fun. But if you're not careful, you might actually learn something too!
The interactive medium offers kids great chances to explore some basic concepts which are both safer and less messy than their real-world alternatives. Creative parents may recognize the opportunity to discuss:
● Subtractive Color Mixing
● Pressure/Temperature Relationships
● Gear Ratios
● Air Pressure/Vacuums
● How Overcooking Can Burn Stuff
► KEEP KIDS SAFE!
We have made this app super-safe for kids by having:
● No Ads
● No In-App-Purchases
● Parental Gates in Our Parents Section
Astro Math: Grades K - 3
" If you would like to share a fun math game with your child, be sure to check out Astro Math: Grades K – 3." (theiPhoneMom.com)
Astro Math: Grades K-3 is a reliable follow-up resource for common core standardized lessons. The app includes math facts covering kindergarten through 3rd grade school curriculum.
By protecting each planet individually a student goes through levels practicing grade-level appropriate math skills (counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division). The student collects coins upon successfully completed missions and is given a chance to ‘buy’ with the same coins an array of defense systems in the Armory. Next to math skills, this app also teaches students facts about planets of our Solar System.
Astro Math: Grades K – 3 was designed relying on common core math standards in the U.S.A. The following skills are expected from students to achieve towards the end of each grade level:
-Kindergarten students should know whole numbers, count sequence by ones and by tens, compare numbers; they should understand addition and subtraction.
-1st grade students should know whole numbers to 100, count sequence by twos and fives; they should develop strategies for adding and subtracting whole numbers based on their prior work with small numbers; they should use addition and subtraction within 20 to solve word problems.
-2nd grade students should use their understanding of addition to develop fluency with addition and subtraction within 100; they should understand place value, as well as multiplication process/division.
-3rd grade students should represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division; they should multiply and divide within 100.
Apps are on sale for a limited time only and subject to price change by developers. Prices were last verified at the time of publishing this post, so always check the App Store for final confirmation before downloading.
