Developer's Description

Winner of TillyWig Awards 2012 Not everyone can be a dog. Some must be people. Some must be cats, or birds, or even skunks, although it's hard to explain why anyone would want to be a skunk. But Trixie is happy, because she does get to be a dog - the best thing there is to be. The food, the belly rubs if only she could drive, her life would be perfect!Bestselling author Dean Koontz gives readers a fun, lighthearted glimpse into the imagination of Trixie, his beloved golden retriever, whose quirky narration and irrepressible spirit will delight readers young and old.I, Trixie who is dog is a part of the Auryn line from Auryn Inc. and is based on Dean Koontz book by the same name. KEY EDUCATIONAL THEMES: -Learn about the roles of various animals like cows, sheep, etc. in our lives-Encourage kids to color each page with their favorite color-Learn about dogs and the activities they do. EXTEND THE LEARNING! ASK YOUR CHILD: -Point out to various animals on each page and ask Name the animal in the picture-What is the role of sheep or a cow? Introduce new animals to the kids.-What sound does a cow make? ENHANCE CREATIVITY BY PERSONALIZING THE STORY: - You can write your own version of the text for the book - Customize your illustrations, children can paint the background, characters on every page with their favorite colors.- Personalize the narration: kids or parents can re-record the narration to make it their own! DEVELOP READING SKILLS WITH THESE LITERACY TOOLS: - Image and word association vocabulary builder - when an image on the screen is touched, the associated word is spoken and the written word is displayed. - Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted. - Touch a word to hear it being spoken in Read Myself mode (almost like training wheels for new readers) THREE WAYS TO READ THE BOOK: 1) "Read to me" - Listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects until they are ready to move to the next page. 2) "Auto Play" - same as "Read to Me" except the page advances automatically once the narration is finished. Useful for those long car rides when you want the child to have a complete book experience. 3) "Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud. The lite version contains the first six pages of the original app with all the functionalities. The user also gets an overview of rest of the pages in thumbnail format.Please rate and review the app. Your feedback means a lot to us!
