Fruits for Little Lamb Book App – Today only! March 27, 2012

Auracle HD – Fruits for Little Lamb for iPad on the iTunes App Store.

This is a really lovely story app for the iPad from Auryn Books that is adapted from Leslie Ann Clark’s devotional book by the same name. This book teaches young children about the fruits of the Spirit in such a gentle and heartwarming way. This app is free for download today. Normally, it is $1.99.

My most favorite feature of the app is the ability to personalize the audio. This is a wonderful inexpensive alternative to the more expensive hard copy recordable books for children.

Highly recommended for children 2 to 6.

Different goals, a lot of different missions, and increasing difficulty keeps the game play interesting.
