3 Little Piggies & Big Bad Wolf - Interactive Story Book and Fun Games for Kids (best fairytale Android kids apps)
This is one of my all time favorite fairytales. I am not sure if it is because of the swine solidarity that is shown, the engineering of the architecture or because of the suggestion that pigs have hairy chins. I do have a compulsion to buy children's storybooks, and book apps are no exception. I went without my drive-through coffee this morning to buy this one, but I am glad I did! Sniff-Sniff, Snaff-Snaff and Snuff-Snuff are adorable as the Three Little Pigs and the activities for children to engage in at the end are excellently executed. Treat your child to this fairytale treasure today!

Three Little Pigs lite version presents the story up to the point where the wolf scares the pigs into their houses. The full version is available through an in-app purchase and includes the rest of the story as well as three activities. Interactive elements throughout the story enhance the reading rather than detract from it and there are three narration options (Autoplay, Listen & Play, Read Myself) to cater to readers and non-readers alike. Highlighted text helps emerging readers to read along.
The activities at the end of the story include jigsaw puzzles, spot-the-difference and a game where children actually blow the tablet to blow the houses down! The description says this feature is for Kindle Fire HD users but I was able to do this on my Samsung Tab3. Three Little Pigs is a great story for sharing and would be an excellent addition to any classroom tablet. Download the lite version and see what you think!
