Review of Crack the Books Digital Science Books

Posted on: by Kyle | No Comments

We are pleased to share two reviews of our award winning digital science books, Pines to Vines – The Forest Biome and Seashores to Sea Floors – The Ocean Biome.  These reviews come from the popular Best Apps for Kids website.  They give both of our books their rare “editor’s choice”  and go further to say – “they harness the iPad’s capabilities for education in a way that few other apps can match.”

Pines to Vines is a state of the art, upper elementary science book based on the forest biome.  Developed in collaboration with Oregon State University’s Department of Forestry and a team of educators, Pines to Vines is a standards based, core curriculum aligned digital science book that covers a variety of topics, including forest layers, range and climate of forest biomes, plant and animal wildlife, adaptations, forest benefits, and forest threats.

Seashores to Sea Floors, developed in collaboration with the University of Alaska’s Department of Oceanography, covers a variety of topics, including ocean layers, plant and animal wildlife, adaptations, benefits of oceans, and ocean threats.  Students will learn about all major ocean ecosystems including open seas, polar oceans, the deep sea, the sea floor, seamounts, hydrothermal vents, cold seeps, rocky intertidal zones, beaches, kelp forests, estuaries and coral reefs.

Pines to Vines is part of our Crack the Books™ series of digital books.  These revolutionary books are designed to improve reading comprehension in all students, from those with special needs to those with academic gifts. They are the first that can be adjusted for reading level without sacrificing curriculum content. Students can experience all the content presented to their classmates, while reading at a level that is appropriate to their ability.  Targeting 3rd – 6th grade science and social studies concepts, our iBooks allow for reading level adjustment from 1st to 8th grade within the same book, making it possible for all students in a classroom to access the same curriculum content regardless of their reading ability.

Pines to Vines is part of Mobile Education Store’s award winning suite of educational apps.  MES has won over 50 app awards and has been named educational developer of the year in both 2011 and 2012.
