It’s FRIDAY! Do you know what that means? Time for another App-y Hour Book Apps for Kids pick.
Your Fantastic Elastic Brain from Little Pickle Press introduces children to the anatomy and various functions of the brain in a fun and engaging way. It also delivers the crucial message that mistakes are an essential part of learning.
“Your Fantastic Elastic Brain is more than just an ebook for children, parents and educators…The app goes above and beyond the concept of a children’s book in digital format. Embedded lesson plans offer activities designed to build an understanding of neuroanatomy, the brain’s primary functions, and how to stretch and shape the brain to its full potential. I have a sneaking suspicion we could all use a refresher course in brain function, so parents and teachers might find this feature interesting as well… Go forth, young parents, and download.” ~ Leslie Rasimas, Appy Awards

It also delivers the crucial message that mistakes are an essential part of learning and introduces children to the anatomy and various functions of the brain in a fun and engaging way.
