Apparoo App of the Week: Rio Read and Play App

When it comes to finding great apps for kids, the process can feel akin to the classic "needle in a haystack" search. There are so many available, that how is a mom to know which ones will be entertaining, educational and worth the price (or, better yet, a great deal)?

Considering how much my own children get excited when they discover a new app waiting for them, I've partnered with Apparoo, the app discovery service for busy moms, to share a weekly 'Apparoo App of the Week.' Each week they have negotiated to find great paid apps at heavily discounted rates (sometimes even free!) so get ready to download some fun!

Let's kick this off with a colorful app that children of all ages are sure to love...

App: Rio Read and Play (The official app for the Movie)

Rio app

Description: Shake your tail feathers and join blue macaws Blu and Jewel for a colorful read-along adventure set in Rio de Janeiro. This delightful app, featuring characters from the popular animated film Rio, will appeal to fans of the film and newcomers alike.

The narrated storybook will encourage your child’s reading skills, the coloring tools will foster their artistic talent – and the bonus activities will grant you peace and quiet over at least two extra states on your next cross-country flight. A feast for the senses, this bright, fun-filled app is like a tiny little Brazilian vacation on your iPad!
