Friends Are Fun!™ is a delightfully engaging touch, tap and slide interactive story of how PeaceBoy™ learns to make friends. This playful and immersive app models how to be a good friend for children ages 2-8.
Parents, teachers and caring adults now have a creative way to engage children in meaningful conversations about what being a good friend means. And, Friends Are Fun! provides cognitive, language and motor development interactive memory games too.
Through the engaging, animated illustrations of digital artist Darci Mostaert with kitschy music from well-known childrens' music artist Mr. Ray, Friends Are Fun! helps your child learn how to be a good friend and have fun while they learn.
As the first story in a series, Friends Are Fun! features the delightful journey with friendly Egg Head characters who learn what it means to be a good friend. The Friends Are Fun! ebook story, written by Sandy Uhland, longtime elementary school music teacher, was envisioned from her early childhood education experiences. Ms. Uhland noticed many key character messages needed to be taught and collaborated with OneSeventeen Media to create the Friends Are Fun! e-book series.
There are over 50 fun sound files, six interactive graphical tap sequences and three playful interactive mini games comprising a total of five levels all designed to teach and test cognitive motor and memory skills.
