*3D book app reviewed

Chug the Bug wondered what type of bug he was. He is furry, had lots of legs, and could roll into a ball. On the first day of mza_9093685666183686430_320x480-75school, Chug walks along and meets lots of bugs also walking to school. Chug hopes to make friends. The other bugs know what type of bug they are. Will Chug ever get to know what he is?

mza_6722643151630078941_320x480-75I reviewed the 3D book app version of this story. I wasn’t sure what 3D meant until I got the book. WOW! The illustrations are cool and they are 3D! The story is cute with really nice rhyme. I think pre-school kids will love the story and older kids will love the graphics. I like the noises accompanying the pages. You can tap different interactive things on each page.  The interactive objects are very cool. The graphics are just awesome. I think kids 4+ would enjoy this app!

I give “Chug the Bug”  5 out of 5 bookworms!fivebooks

Chug The Bug: Chug Makes Friends is available as an ebook at AMAZON or iTunes. The interactive app (what I reviewed) is available at iTunes or the Mac APP store.

    Very neat. I am not very familiar with apps, but I bet the pictures of the illustrations are even cooler in person. Thanks for sharing Erik.

    I’m certainly intrigued to see what a 3D app looks like. We love 3D books (pop-ups).

    Love that you are also reviewing apps, Erik. I was’t aware book apps could be 3D. These illustrations look so cute!

      Thank you Miss Marple! A 3D book app is very cool to read! You don’t have to wear 3D Glasses – it is just how the book app is! :)

    This is new to me, too. I didn’t know apps could do 3D. Cool!

      I didn’t either, until I read the description of the app. It is really cool! :)

      This sounds like a great read and app. Kids are going to love the 3D! Will recommend to my daughter-in-law.

        It is a great book app Ms. Tilton! I hope your daughter-in-law likes it!

      Aren’t all real-life bugs 3D? But sorry, you can’t eat Chug and his friends. ;)

    The illustrations look glorious, Erik! Maybe this 2013, I’d be more iPad-savvy. :)
