The Horn Book Review Reviews Jump See Farm

The Horn Book Review is a great resource for any parent or teacher looking for children’s books and apps. I’ve subscribed to their paper magazine, which is full of articles/interviews by and about prominent children’s book authors and illustrators as well as reviews of graphic novels, picture books, and books centered around various themes (I found great horse books for my 7-year-old). They review the full gamut– from children’s picture books to young adult books. The Horn Book Review also runs the Boston Globe Horn Book awards every year– another great source for high-quality books.

Check out The Horn Book’s web site where you will also find reviews of apps, e-books, events, guides, and blogs. You can also like them on Facebook.

Thanks for their review of the Jump See Farm app.

Cool Mom Tech: A Lovely Day At the Farm, No Claritin Needed

“The app consists mostly of short documentary style videos about farm life all produced with a great homespun vibe. . . . The easy to navigate landing pages feature the kinds of charming illustrations you might recognize through other other Jumpseewow apps. Add in some upbeat, friendly background music, the whole vibe is really does feel like great educational TV, only on your iPad or Kindle Fire.”

Thanks Coolmomtech for the review.

Kids Film from Around the World

Sometimes I wish I lived in NYC, especially when I read about New York’s International Children’s Film Festival in the New York Times. But luckily for those of us who live elsewhere the festival not only offers film recommendations, but they also feature a bunch of films you can watch online. They do also have touring compilations that get shown in other cities. Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts will be hosting screenings in April. It’s inspiring to see children’s films from around the world. It always has a big impact on both me and my kids.
