Educational picture book app for toddlers and preschoolers, based on sliced-vegetable drawing activity we all enjoy.

Do you recognize what it is ? It's a monochrome sliced image of a well known vegetable or a fruit. Is it a Lotus root or a Strawberry ? Hmmm, may be it's Chinese cabbage. Try to identify them all ! Some of their shapes look really familiar. After you've checked what they are, let's make some drawings out of them ! If you like, switch modes and scratch the white canvas as they gradually emerge on the screen.

-- From the author, Katsu Kiuchi --
Thank you for purchasing Slice'n Draw. The content of this app was derived from three of my Japanese educational picture book titles, "Yasai no Onaka", "Yasai no Senaka" and "Kudamono nanda". I created this app as a new kind of a picture book, accommodating many interactive features and art expressions couldn't be done prevously in paper form. It can be enjoyed by a single player or multiple players. You may also project it to a large screen for group reading activity. I presonally designed this app for all ages, from toddlers to parents.
