Henry! you’re late AGAIN! is a fun-filled book app that takes us through the morning routine of a boy named Henry. What happens when he shows up really late for school and has to face down the secretary? And Why is he always late?
Over the past couple of weeks I have had the pleasure of giving this app a thorough look over and watching how my kids interact and enjoy this book app for kids. We are big book lovers in our house and have a full library of Children’s titles as well as a number of apps on our mobile devices. I love seeing how the kids have really latched on to this new way of reading via the iPad and encourage it, because the book are often less expensive and take up less space. Technology has even reignited the joy of reading for my 9-year-old. Henry! you’re late AGAIN! has fast become one of her favorites which honestly surprised me.
Looking at the book app the first time through it seems to be simply a book made into an app, but there are hidden little gems that you can hunt out. The kids have had a fun time finding all the animations and sound recordings that are hidden on each page and were even occasionally surprised by them. There are a number of options available for how you want to enjoy this book. Turn off the narration or have one of the two narrators read, Henry or the author Mary, Henry is the most often picked narrator in our house. You can also choose to have the story auto play, or turn the pages yourself. The illustrations are very well done and even the kids have remarked at how much they liked the story. I guess they can relate since their bus has been late a time of two.
Henry! you’re late AGAIN! is recommended for kids ages 1-10 years old.
This is one of my the most often used apps for kids that I have loaded on the iPad and I think it will have a permanent home there. You can pick up Henry! you’re late AGAIN! in the app store for $1.99.
