Why we like this app?
Certainly among the most interesting apps for kids are the ebook apps, be the simple ones or the more interactive. And within these books a specific niche category has been developing strong: the digital popup books for kids. They are books the resemble the paper pop-up books enriched with motion and sound. Usually beautifully illustrated and developed with extreme care.

‘Three Little Pigs and the Secrets of a Popup Book’ as the tittle reveals, is in this category and is a gorgeous book. It combines classic-style illustrations with paper popup like interactivity and motion with a very interesting ‘x-ray goggles’ mode where you can actually ‘see through’ the pages and understand how the popup is ‘working’.

When choosing apps for my kid I really worry about giving him a really well done product where every detail has been carefully produced: content, visuals, sound, interactivity. This app is certainly in that category, you can tell by the trailer video they have put together (see bellow)!
