book bonanza: the fantastic flying books of morris lessmore

Sep 20, 2011

My mom bought us an iPad back in May…yes, she is an amazing mama and grandma who spoiled us with this amazing present! We are still figuring out how to incorporate it into our life properly. We have some favorite math apps, Keziah has a geography app that she adores, I love having so many of our audio books available at all times, and Fisher uses the Bob Books app every day to work on reading. As each day passes, I am discovering just how useful it is.

A few weeks ago, I heard about the interactive book The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore. I was skeptical at first because I am a book lover…as in a hardcover, fabulous font, must be the right smell and have the right size margins book lover. I am a tad obsessed about books and have a house full of them. I didn’t think I would like an electronic book…not a kindle or ibooks version, which I have found to be super handy, but an actual electronic book with all the bells and whistles that that medium offers. I finally gave in and decided to try it and let me just say it is adorable. I love the story (Morris is a book-lover as well), I love the messages (books are our friends and help us through life and writing our own book will bless the lives of others), I even love the interactiveness of it. My husband thinks it is sheer brilliance and is trying to figure out how to change professions mid-life…he has always wanted to be a children’s book author and this app broadened his view of what is possible. Our children have asked to “do Morris” again and again and again.

If you are blessed to have an iPad, give it a shot. I think you’ll love it!
