my husband took both of these pictures this week
Link up your Wordless Wednesday posts here:
Me: Olivia, you are so ( *smart / creative/ funny etc. insert whatever non-beauty related compliment here*)
Olivia: you mean I'm pretty
Me: no, I mean that you are smart because of how well you wrote those words (or whatever)
Olivia: but I don't want to be smart I want to be pretty!
Me: explaining once again why it is great to be pretty and she is certainly pretty but that being smart and funny and creative is way more important because that is what really matters.
Olivia: no. I want to be pretty. *stomp stomp stomp*
Me: hangs head in shame as women everywhere take two giant steps backwards in our quest for being recognized as more than just eye-candy.
"ya ya, I know. And I'm funny and creative too. But I'm still pretty right?"
"I love the Steven Spielberg comic. I like that it is real information like you would read in a book or at school or something but it is interesting like a story. I really like this one because I think Steven Spielberg is a little bit like me. Maybe I can make movies someday too. That would be so cool!!! I didn't know that Steven Spielberg got bullied when he was a kid. I bet those guys that did that feel pretty stupid now that they know that he is way cooler than them. I think it is cool that he gets to make movies. But people didn't know how smart he was did they? But they know now."
I thought the art work was good, the stories were easy to read. The points of the story that are awkward are not left out but addressed in a way that is honest. The drawings are bright, simple, and highlight the story well.
The app itself is easy to use and tries to reward you for using and learning the features that are not immediately visible. There are badges for doing things like using the bookmarking feature for the first time and for clicking on the 'timeline' page that's included with each book but not a part of the manuscript. The app is easy to use and fun to explore.
