Tech Tuesday – Three Cheers for Stick DogPosted by MeckMom on Mar 1, 2011 in Popular Posts: Tech Tips, Recent Posts | 4 comments
The only thing better than enjoying a great book with your kids is enjoying a great FREE book with your kids. When I found this book in the iPad library I knew my kids would be fans…after all, the illustrations look just like their drawings.
I read this little book aloud to my kids over a few nights and they thought it was hysterical. Seriously, laugh-out-loud funny. The story revolves around the misadventures of 4 stray dogs in search of a hot meal – in this case big, juicy hamburgers.
The book is written in a casual, conversational tone and my kids ate it up. When I would stop at a chapter break they would beg me to keep going (of course that may have been simply to stall bed time but let’s give them the benefit of the doubt). They liked it so much that as soon as we finished I immediately downloaded the sequel: Stick Dog Wants a Frankfurter. They adored that one too.
The good news is you don’t have to own an iPad to enjoy this belly-laugh inducing book. You can find it on most eReaders and in several spots online. On BigDifBooks you can either view it on your computer or print out your own copy – both options are free. Fun family entertainment all for the price of …well…nothing. It’s tough to beat that. Just thought I’d pass it on.
