Description

“Penelope the Purple Pirate is an enjoyable story of a charming little girl who thinks she’s too old for a nap. She decides to go on an adventure with her quirky friends: a dolphin, a sea turtle and an octopus. Penelope’s hunt for treasure is full of fun and adventure, and the wonder of exploration. This cute story for young readers touches on independence in an imaginary setting, as the bright illustrations bring the seashore to life.”

I love children to use their imaginations. In their mind they can go anywhere, do anything, even become a pirate and find a treasure. “Penelope the Purple Pirate” by Melissa Northway is a fun book for children. Both parents and teachers will love the story as much as their children. Read more here

“I am the principal at Madison Elementary School. We use iTouches in our instruction daily and are constantly on the lookout for great apps for all levels of learners. I found Penelope the Purple Pirate an entertaining story that engaged our students while encouraging them to follow along with the words as the story was read. This high-interest story and interactive format makes this app a winner!”
Michelle Hayes, principal of Madison Elementary School

My 4yr old son Quinn has a fascination with all things Pirate and his Penelope the Purple Pirate book brings his pirate imagination to life. Quinn loves to act out parts of the story and help mommy read it since he has memorized much of the story line. The iphone/ipad/itouch app is a great enhancement to get kids engaged in learning and enjoy reading.
