Check out this awesome, recently-released iPad app:
Piano Carnival Interactive E-Book – FREE for iPad only.
This app was created by Sonya (a friend of mine) and her sister Elizabeth Schumann. Piano Carnival is an interactive eBook that contains delightful illustrations, reads the poetry aloud to the view, and plays videos of the Schumann sisters playing Saint-Saens’ music “Carnival of the Animals.”
Here is a quick video that demonstrates what this delightful app can do:
This trailer video gives some background into the app’s creation. Sonya and Elizabeth have also created a companion page on their website that contains lesson plans and more resources related to Carnival of the Animals. Be sure to take a look at all of the resources offered there!
It is exciting to see more apps released that take advantage of the full capabilities of the iPad!
