NEW ORLEANS, LA, September 1 2010 ? Award-winning author/illustrator, Mike Artell, introduces his first iPhone/iPad app based on his lift-the-flap book titled LEGS. This delightful application features 11 pages of captivating content where the child can choose a reader, see text as it is being said, and watch small animations.
A narrator (Mike himself is one of three voices) guides the child through two lines of rhyming verse. The last word of the rhyming verse is withheld until the child touches an animated prompt which reveals a hidden animal and the missing word. The app is self-guided so parents can sit back and relax as the child learns to read. Artell notes, “This app engages all different types of learners – The kids who learn by seeing, those who learn by hearing and those who learn by doing. Plus, it’s great fun.”
The app also includes a link to a page on Artell’s web site with fun facts about each animal in the app and coloring sheets. There’s also video of Artell reading the hardcover version of the book to children. The app can be found by searching LEGS BOOK on the iTunes app store. The app costs $1.99.
Mike Artell has written/illustrated more than 40 books and hosted his own television cartooning show. He has won numerous awards for his work. Most recently, his book PETITE ROUGE – A CAJUN RED RIDING HOOD- was named 2009 Read Aloud Book of the Year by the National Association of Elementary School Principals. The book has been made into a play and has been performed around the world. Each year the author visits with more than 13,000 children at 50 schools across the U.S. abroad where he shares his techniques for thinking, writing and drawing more creatively. Information at
