When we look at apps to recommend, we look for quality and fun. It also doesn’t hurt if you learn a little. “Ready to Sing with Andy Z: Scarecrow for iPad” has it all. Geared towards the younger crowd, this app for kids 4+ includes beautiful illustrations, fantastic music from kids songster Andy Z, and can read the story to you. You can also read the story yourself. Plus the added “sound effects” are icing on the cake. Price: $1.99. Highly recommended.
