The Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood app has to be one of the best apps that I have ever encountered. The combination of a classic story along with classical music as well as an amazing narrator really takes this app to the next level. It is listed as Best New App and Editor’s Pick too.
We reviewed the Deluxe version of the Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood app. It features fun games you and your family can play, along with exclusive behind-the-scenes videos and extras. The classical music was an amazing addition to this app that makes it perfect for use at home or in the classroom.
You might wonder what the story is all about. This classic tale is brought to life in the popular style of a fractured fairy tale that I can tell you are greatly enjoyed by my second grade students. A fractured fairy tale takes the elements of the original story and bring it to life in a different fashion. It might be a change in setting, character or problem. This time, they focus on the idea of a prequel to the original story.
Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood is a revival of the classic Peter and the Wolf tale brought to you by acclaimed production company, Giants Are Small. This version brings Peter to Hollywood to meet his hippie grandfather while bringing classical music elements to life. Peter, along with all of the characters in the movie book, are narrated and brought to life by Rock n’ Roll legend, Alice Cooper.
Take a look at our review of the app to see what parts are my 6 year old’s favorites.
As a mom, one of my favorite features was the Making of Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood app. Everything is handmade and it is very interesting to see how the story and backdrop gets put together into the visually appealing app that has some groundbreaking qualities.
And a bonus for teachers – there is a study guide available on the website so that you can bring the story to life in the classroom too.
