Super Harry HD (by PicPocket Books) is an encouraging and funny story (for young children) about a boy named Harry who happens to be having a bad week, that is until he decides to make a change for the better giving him a whole new perspective for the world around him. Harry’s week begins with a series of unfortunate mishaps that continue until he decides that he’s had enough. With a brand new attitude and conscious actions on his part, he finds that the following week unfolds in a much better way. Super Harry HD is one of those stories where the old “simple is better” adage applies. Everything about this book is simple and that’s why it is so appealing to me. This book’s well-done graphics and classic style harken me back to the simplicity of traditional storybooks. Yes, there are some animations throughout the story and a sprinkle of interactive opportunities, but not a lot compared to most other iPad kids’s books, which makes for a more focused and uncluttered reading experience.
The casual, laid-back feel of the book puts you at ease immediately — there’s nothing flashy about the presentation and that is the appeal. The artwork is nice hand drawn, colored pencil illustrations that really come to life when the animation and interactive opportunities are activated. Simple right and left swipes turn each page for ease of navigation and there are no extra links or areas for kids to get lost in this app — allowing them to focus on the story. The settings’ area is accessed by a little button on the bottom right of the page, and there are only 2 other buttons in the App Settings to either turn on or off the audio and word-highlighting function. If you keep the audio on it creates a more stimulating reading experience, but if you prefer to read to your child or let your child read to you, that’s always a nice option. If left on, the optional highlight feature lights up each word on the page (both when audio is on or off). I personally like the highlighting word mode for clueing emerging readers so that they will begin to recognize words and develop a fluid pace for reading. Super Harry HD (Super Harry’s Rotten Luck) is a simply appealing story with a funny and encouraging storyline that demonstrates how positive attitude and actions can make a huge difference on how you relate to the world around you. To see how Harry does that, watch the video app demo. Watch our other iPad video app demos . Crazy Mike
