Teacher Review

Moving Books! Jajajajan, is essentially a sing and read along application of Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales. The combination of text, moving graphics and song give it a chirpy feel designed to engage the child and help them memorise the words and relate to the story line.

Downloading the application is a fairly straightforward task and the child is launched immediately into the start screen, with a choice of a number of options. The screen is laid out well and brightly coloured with some jolly background music, which can be disabled. The background of the screen is animated with twinkly stars, rolling green hills and a furry creature dangling down which can be touched to create a whizzing sound. The menu option, with a graphic of an old wooden noticeboard, leads you to a parental gate and asks you to enter the number displayed, this in turn leads you to a further menu of seven options. The first option in the parent gateway that leads you to a well constructed help guide on how to play the game. The settings option lets you switch on or off the songs or books on offer. Further options include the ‘Terms of Service’, ‘Privacy Policy’ and ‘Company’ which lead you to the company web site with further information, the links do not return you to the menu but clicking on the app places you back in the parent gateway. The parent gateway also provides an email link to the company and an initialisation option, which reinstalls the whole app again.

Back at the main start screen I chose the songs section and played the forever-popular “Mary Had A Little Lamb” nursery rhyme. After an initial delay for the data to be downloaded, (which enables off-line playing) displayed before you is a rather amusing interpretation of the rhyme, with bright coloured cartoon figures of Mary and some sheep dancing to the tune, sung rather earnestly by a young American girl and the words to the tune are displayed in sync with the song. The story unfolds with further brightly coloured graphics of the scenes and the teacher eventually expelling Mary for taking her little lamb to school. The songs section has a choice of twelve rhymes with the same generic delivery processes, some of which I am not familiar with but they are all as equally jolly.

The book section contained nine books combining the familiar with the not so familiar. I clicked on the ‘Three Little Pigs’ book and the story unfolded with some simple but effective animations developed in a style of stick puppets, slightly amusing noise animations and narrated by an enthusiastic American lady. I enjoyed watching ‘Momotaro’ a story I was not familiar with.

All stories and songs had links out to other applications that bore no relationship to the application and some of which were not age appropriate. My grandchildren, who are avid users of educational apps, were not engaged for very long in the songs or stories and I sensed that they needed a little more interaction with the story line to involve them for a longer period.

This application has some amusing features and the concept of the programme is very good, however the substance and style would not rank it in my top ten toddler chart.
