Story Time with Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood App

Hey Cuties,

I’ve been on the go like crazy, I have so much I want to share. I just need to wrangle all of these thoughts and such in my head and put them into words. The kids and I have been checking out a new app geared towards kids. Originally I thought I would check it out with the four-year-old but the eleven-year-old joined in as well. They fuss so much it is so sweet when they get along; I must capture the moments as they seem so rare. You know the sibling rivalry thing is real at all ages I swear.

I received compensation for this post as part of a promotional program with MomSelect.

Because I like sharing information in multiple formats.

I don’t know when I became the mother of these big kids but I am. Nori has been pressing me out about story time and how we’ve gotten off track with reading her bedtime stories. She is totally right, we used to read a new story every night.  She doesn’t expect Dad to read the bed time stories {No idea why not since he places the moon and the stars in the sky.} So I had a great idea to spring on her without notice.

I believe in outsourcing this parenting thing; I’ve mentioned this before. Now this isn’t a for real replacement but it was a creative way to have a bed time story. She definitely wants me by her side though, so I’m not off the hook 100%.

There is a huge issue with music and the arts being taking out of school. They are the first two things to go when schools are suffering from budget cuts. The Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood app helps fill that musical void; with classical music in particular.

    That seems super convenient. Plus your daughter was so intrigued. There are def benefits to “old fashioned” story time but this would be nice to switch it up.

  2. Kirstin N. Fuller (@thetravelindiva)

    This would be a great app to keep the kids busy on road trips! #GreatIdea

    I’m not a mom but I totally think it would be a great. Love your butterflies on your sleeper.

  4. Amanda @ Adorkablii

    I have seen first hand music and art being cut from schools and it really does take a toll on the kids. I think this is an app that my son would enjoy. He does read but we don’t do the bed time story thing and I am not home often to make sure he reads. And music….. He loves music, I am gonna have to tell him to check this out.

  5. Heather @ Kraus House Mom

    My kids will do or watch anything as long as it’s on a tiny screen. I love Alice Cooper and the story of Peter and the Wolf. I’m going to show this to my kids.

  6. Bijee

    That is cool! My little one prefers one of us as well, he will do music and such on the tablet but he is not on a story on the tablet. At least not yet!

  7. Pam

    I love finding great apps for kids. This one sounds like a lot of fun, I love that it is narrated by Alice Cooper.

  8. Donna Shana

    Awh! She still wants mommy there to just enjoy the story, since you’re not reading it! I love that. Looks like a great compromise though. Great find!

  9. Sarah

    What a cool app, looks like your kids are really enjoying it. I bet it’s a lot of fun, while I don’t have any kids, I am going to share this with friends who have some kids who may love it!

  10. Jeanine

    So fun! My kids don’t go on devices often but when we do we will have to check this out. Looks pretty fabulous and Alice Cooper? Fabulous!

    I have never heard of this. There are so many ways for kids to engage in reading and other activities to keep them interested.

  15. NYC Single Mom

    I find this to be one of the more e creative on the market. I know kids getting into the app have no idea who alice Cooper is but still think its cool he was involved. And do think it’s so important to introduce kids to classical music at an early age. Will have to check the app out.

    • MimiCuteLips

      Yes, I thought it was cooler than most. The kids won’t know who Alice Cooper is but it could be a cool lesson.

  16. Terri Beavers

    I’ll download this app today and let the grand kids give it a try. It sounds like something they would really love so they probably will.

  17. Kim

    I love how you call it outsourcing your parenting. We sometimes do the same thing. Thank you to Roku and Netflix. This game sounds cool.

  18. Jenn

    This looks like a fun app. Our daughter loves anything with a wolf. I’ll have to check it out.

  19. Ana Elizabeth

    Sounds cool. This is a great app for kids who love to hear or read stories. I’ll share this to my brother so my nephews will hear bedtime stories even if he’s busy. 😀 😀 😀
