BRAVE ROONEY Digital Children's Book, Ages 4 - 8

Because Rooney makes it easier for kids to feel good about "fitting in" with new classmates, we're having a one week back-to-school introductory special.

Ever wonder how most superheroes learned math and spelling? Probably because they went to Captain Majestic Memorial School, an elementary school for superheroes. This year, an ordinary kid - Rooney - shows up at school and can't do anything super. Somehow Rooney shows everybody what it takes to be really brave.

Written by Gerry Renert, three-time EMMY nominated kid's TV writer and winner of "Parent's Choice," "iParenting" and "Mom's Choice" awards, BRAVE ROONEY has over fifty interactive features and animations.

It's a great way to build children’s self esteem while helping them with the ever-present challenge of "fitting in."

Bacciz apps, developer of great apps for kids, have been featured in Apple's Whats Hot, Staff Favorites, TUAW articles by David Winograd, and in Gizmodo as "Best Apps for Kids" among others.

We are working on improving education one app at a time!

My Thoughts:
I like this interactive eBook for kids.  My 3 year old spent a lot of time enjoying each page as there are tons of hidden noises and actions (like superheros zooming off the page).  And the message acceptance of people who are different is great.  It is geared for kids 4-8 but  my 3 year old loved it too. I am personally a big fan of books with the 'read to me' feature so that my kids can have the story read to them while I sneak a minute to get something done.  But the older kids can also read it to themselves.  And everyone can enjoy the silly sounds and actions as you touch different characters on each page.  This app definitely got two thumbs up from my kids!
