Summer vacation season is underway and we are on the hunt for exciting books and apps to keep the kids entertained while we travel.  One of our new favorite apps is Penelope the Purple Pirate!

Written by Melissa Northway, Penelope the Purple Pirate is a fun story that demonstrates the power of imagination.  With highlighted words read aloud, Penelope the Purple Pirate is great for any child who enjoys listening to stories all the way up to children reading independently.

My girls - two and five - love to use the iPad on their own.  They are drawn to Penelope the Purple Pirate and ask for it during story time before bed.
