Even Monsters Get Sick (best free Android apps for kids)
Books, books and more books. I cannot get enough book apps! I can't believe I actually put off getting this particular app, because it's about monsters. This monster is not the least bit scary! He is rather sick, though, and so his behavior is not the best. Since he appears lazy and boring, Zub's original owner trades him for three stickers, two sticks of gum and a skateboard. The narrator then describes all the different fun activities in which he involves his new monster pet, but Zub still seems bored. Eventually, Zub the monster is found to be sick, nursed back to health and is finally able to be actively involved in further fun activities.
This highly interactive story has the coolest soundtrack, really bassy brass, and the illustrations are equally as cool. This is a fantastic story, especially for kids stuck in bed sick, as they will be cheered by the characters, and reminded that by resting and taking their medicine, they will eventually get better and be able to go and play once again. This app was reviewed over at Smart Apps For Kids and given 4.5 stars.
