Wee You-Things promotes acceptance of people who are different from you by introducing 24 quirky characters who all have unique "You-Things."
How This App Works
In rhyming verse, we meet Paul who is tall, and Bea who wears glasses to see. There's large, green-skinned Royce who has a tiny voice. And blue-skinned Pierre who runs with his arms in the air.
Read aloud by an accepting narrator and accompanied by up-beat music, the app enfolds kids into the experience by having them touch the characters. When they do, the character reveals their secret "You-Thing." For example, when you tap on Niels you discover that the wheels on his wheelchair spin in psychedelic patterns of orange.
If you have young children, this app is a great discussion-starter about how people are different and what makes each child special. The app even asks readers to create a version of themselves by taking a photo and identifying one of their own "You-Things." Your child then appears in the parade of special characters at the end of the app.
By creating a joyous environment in which to celebrate the things that make us different, this feel-good-app rises to the top.
is so good that it belongs on all children's devices!
