In today’s world, children are no stranger to technology. The Mighty League, Terrible Taunting Storybook App uses technology to educate and promote awareness of differences for children in a fun and an interactive way. The book is based upon the real life of Jonathon Murphy, who has Asperger’s Syndrome, and is written by his sister Molly.
This a great app for kids that offer music, customizable characters, narration, and the ability to record their own narration. I shared the app with my nine-year old niece and she enjoyed reading the book. On our first read through, we both missed the secret notebook, which contains additional information about Asperger’s syndrome and bullying, and some of the interactive elements. So this is an app that a child could use multiple times and see something new each time. It has more than 70 different interactive elements such as waving capes, sniffing hedgehog, and speech bubbles.
The app is ideal for children ages 5-11. It is available for iOS (iPhone, iPad), Android (phones/tablets), Kindle Fire, Nook, PC, and Mac. Find out more about Geek Club at http://geekclubbooks.com.
This a great resource for parents, counselors and teachers. It has project based learning curriculum, which aligns with common core state standards, available for free download.
The adorkable JMan and his plucky hedgehog sidekick, Mr. Redge are the unstoppable, secret superhero team who save a classmate from the poking pranks of Dr. Evil Touch! Join this quirky duo on their quest to stop a bully, make the school playground a peaceful place, and more importantly, make a new friend who likes crime fighting, capes and karate, too. Discover JMan’s hidden notebook on each page about what it’s like to be an Aspie.
