A Storybook App with Videos
This storybook combines little girl Bella's imaginary journeys with short animated videos showing her in her dreams. Kids tap on the words to hear her fanciful imaginings read out loud, and then a short movie starts.
Bella is an adorable red-headed girl who shares her imaginary adventures with the reader. Voiced by a charming little girl with a slight but delightful accent, Bella shares her musings with the reader as she takes you on adventures that have her climbing the tallest tree, running so fast that she can glide over water, and swimming in the ocean as a dolphin. Presented as a series of fantasies where when Bella closes her eyes, the app switches from Bella telling you her vision with words to seeing them as video of her doing the activity she imagined.
A Feast for the Imagination
The animated shorts are breathtaking, looking as good as any Saturday morning cartoon. They are accompanied by a gentle, upbeat soundtrack. In one video, Bella imagines being a caterpillar that turns into a butterfly. In others, she transforms into a "big stomping giant," a monster, a "slippery, slimy slug," an astronaut reading a book in space, and more. Expect giggles from your little ones. This storybook is a feast for the imagination and a beautiful canvas for the eyes.
Little Bella's - I Close My Eyes is best for all little girls. Bella is a fearless girl with a big imagination who shows others that anything is possible if you try.
