App Review: Shake the Tree!

It's giggle time!

Kids ages 2 to 4 years will love "Shake the Tree!" by Fox and Sheep. Shake the tree, either with a finger (fine motor skills) or by shaking the device (gross motor skills) and see which animal falls out. Each animal has a different animation and will do silly actions, with a tiny amount of problem-solving involved. Once you and your child have worked through all the animals, you'll have the option to start all over again, but this time in a different order. Can your child remember what to do?

Even better? The app is based on the book Shake the Tree by Chiara Vignocchi.

"Shake the Tree!" app is currently only available on the Apple Store for $2.99.

*Remember, as with all media, it's best if you and your child play together. The American Pediatrics Association recommends that children ages 2 to 5 have a trusted adult to relate what they're seeing to the world around them. They also suggest that screen time be limited to one hour a day for this age group. For more information, take a look at their recommendations for media usage.
