Instructional Ideas

A lovely addition to your class library, allow class members to read the story during down time or reading time.

Stage storytime and gather your class around to listen either to you or the narration. Get student input on what to tap or touch and where to find the dog on each page.

Recommend this to parents or pupils for at-home use. The story is meaningful and worth reading.

Use this as inspiration or a supplementary material for a lesson on careers. Find out what your learners want to be when they grow up!

Classroom Considerations

There is a little bit of a lag between some of the pages that have extra interactive features or images to load. This is minor and should not take away from the story as a whole.

Since you can choose a boy or a girl as the protagonist, there might be some argument if you read the book as a whole class. Consider reading it more than once and switching between Maddi and Lewis. Otherwise, this is a great feature and will make the story more personalized for individual readers.

The narration is in a British accent. If you have class members with speech impairments, you might want to turn the narration off.

Pros

  • Lovely message: Anything is possible!
  • Interactive and playful; many animations to find
  • Bonus game included
  • Definitely worth the price
Cons

  • Minor lagging between some pages
  • Not a very long story
