Whether you’re planning a trip to Boston or are just interested in learning a little bit more, Bernie of Boston alley is here to help in a kid-friendly way. Join Bernie the cat as he sets out to photograph Fenway Park, Franklin Zoo, Boston Tea Party Ship, Children’s Museum, Milk Street and Bunker Hill Monument in Boston Bernie Snaps the City – a new interactive storybook app.
This interactive kids app teaches kids and adults alike more about the city of Boston and it’s family-friendly activities in an easy-to-follow way. Kids can read along as the male narrator reads the book aloud. They can follow along as the word being read turns red and they can click around the illustrations to activate various character movements and sounds.
Boston Bernie teaches us about Boston in a hip, modern way from a perspective that we might not otherwise learn from all with no in-app advertising to distract us. This spunky kitty gets into mischief on all of his stops but doesn’t teach kids to be naughty, which I love.
The Boston Bernie app is available on iTunes and in the Amazon store for the Kindle for $1.99.
