Review: Butterfly Kisses

Perfect bedtime book for toddlers and young children with colourful illustrations and wonderful vocabulary, setting the scene beautifully for affection and closeness before bed.

View on the App Store: Butterfly Kisses by Cathy Lane - Cathy Lane Studios

Features of Butterfly Kisses:

  • Perfect length for a bedtime story.
  • Colourful and engaging interactive illustrations.
  • 10 cuddly toys come to life in the child's imagination.
  • Lots of Australian animals are featured in the story.
  • 3 activities are included to advance your child's cognitive and creative development.
This well loved book has been adapted into an interactive bedtime story for iPad and iPhone.  It is easy to navigate and the narrator is easy to listen to.  Written by a mother for her child, this book is a delight with peaceful background music and animal sounds.  

Each page features an animal, with lots of Aussie animals, as your child journeys through the oceans and earth to see which one would give the most perfect kiss!  

The use of alliteration throughout the book is splendid, allowing you to read to your child with feeling and fun.  

The book comes with a jigsaw puzzle for cognitive development and a writing exercise that helps your young child think creatively about the use of language as they write their own verse for the story.  There is a drawing page that allows your child to illustrate their verse, which is great for self expression and awareness.

Read to me and read by myself options enable your child to listen to the story over and over again.

We enjoyed discovering which things moved on the screen.  By finding and tapping on the ladybird, found on each page, we were able to see if we had found them all! Fun and educational iPad book app for young children.
