Our friends at Digital Storytime rated Jubitron the Girl Robot four-and-a-quarter stars, with Carisa saying "Curious Media has created an inspired little app in Jubitron, featuring fun interactive elements and story enhancements that take the picture book to a place 'out of this world'. On every one of this book's nearly 20 pages, there is an unique way to engage the reader with the story. From twirling the world beneath the feet of Jubitron to flinging her spaceship through the clouds, this is definitely a title that will capture the interest of young explorers, especially girls."
Jubitron and her two friends have gone on a picnic that turns out to be a disaster as it starts to rain. The friends' disappointment at the ruined picnic does not last long, however, as Jubitron has the bright idea to go to the source of the problem and deal with it. A bold and brave decision, and one that will inspire your children to think outside the box when faced with problems. Do yourself a favour and download this app today!
The Lovely Little Picnic is the first story in the Jubitron: The Girl Robot series. The book features original music, illustration, animation and surprise activities on every page that will capture your child's sense of creativity and imagination.
In this adventure Jubitron and her friends Mr. Alligator and Little Birdie decide to go on a lovely little picnic. But when their picnic is interrupted by a rain storm, Jubitorn has a bright idea and with the help of her friends (and a rocket ship) they save the day and make a new friend while they're at it.
Kids will have a blast as they play the drums on a cake with Mr. Alligator, toss olives around with Little Birdie and cut the cheese with Jubitron!
