Words That Go with Richard Scarry’s Busytown Cars, by Learning Touch, has been transformed into a 21st century play experience that kids, parents and teachers will all be raving about! Yes, it is new and you may not have this one on your radar yet, but believe us – it is a winner in every way. Best part is the developers have given options in the settings to modify the play for what is “just right” for individual children’s differences. Richard Scarry has been an iconic figure in the preschool world since 1963 when Scarry reached his peak with the publishing of “Richard Scarry’s Best Word Book Ever, which became his first best-seller! This app is sure to take many down Memory Lane as they watch youngsters giggling about the absurd vehicles like the Pickle Car, Banana Mobile, and the unforgettable Apple Car. All comes to life with the anthropomorphic animals (animals that possess human-like qualities) as they proceed through the much loved Busytown. Children need to move the letters into place to form the word that the car is named after. The traffic light then turns green and the vehicles can proceed through the busy intersection! Applause to Learning Touch.
