Wee You-Things, by Wee Society LLC, is exactly the kind of book we need to read to our children to help instill 21st-century character traits of acceptance. This HAPPY interactive book encourages us all to appreciate and celebrate the differences in people. We were so delighted when we came across this app, every element in this simple read is stunning and the message so poignant! This company has a darling line of toys and prints to adorn your tot’s room with. We believe in happy design. We’re especially drawn to the impact and beauty of simple, modern graphic shapes and bold colors. We imagine these pieces would be equally happy in spaces for kids or adults. After a bit of research, we found who was behind this unique style and who inspired them. Jill Robertson, Jason Schulte, and Rob Alexander are co-founders of the new kids’ brand Wee Society. Their splendid graphics and insightful message are combined with the insanely great storytelling technologies of the iPad, making this an app you won’t want to miss.
Wee Society’s newest crew of characters celebrates “you-things”— those little and big things that, together, make you special and like no one else in the world.
Fun features include:
- A chance to create your own “you” and become a part of the story
- Interactive animations (with silly sound effects) that respond to touch and encourage discovery
- Tips for parents to help kids learn about differences and start conversations that help build understanding, encourage empathy, inspire creativity, develop confidence, and induce giggles
- Music and narration from indie rock band Rabbit!
