*Mom's Choice Awards® Golden Recipient* Truth and Tales is a perfect for bedtime, interactive bookshelf for kids! The children’s interactive books that make up Truth and Tales are based in old eastern tales that bring a lot of benefits for kids’ cognitive development. The stories were created to entertain, teach and help the understanding of the self in the world. Kids learn skills like self confidence, the ability to overcome irrational fears, to use pacific negotiation instead of violent confrontation, and a lot more!
Truth and Tales’ library curation was made by doctors, neuroscientists and educators, who participated in the book’s development process to make sure that everything was done right. The illustrations, animations, use of color, music and all the different aspects used in Truth and Tales were carefully made so that every beneficial aspect in the stories could be preserved.
Children take all they can off of the stories, according to their development stage they find themselves in. They might understand just one character, one event or the most obvious meaning in the story from the first time, but as they listen to the stories again and again, they understand different layers of meanings, concepts and insights.
When exposed to Truth and Tales’ stories repetitively, kids will better comprehend their lives and reflect on how people think and act in different situations. These stories help them to distinguish effective patterns of thought and behaviour through reflections and actions.
Truth and Tales’ stories and a little discussion about the books after using the app, kids can learn to think more in a grounded way, extending their vocabulary and using new words everyday. Kids can think about the stories’ meaning in ways to enrich the learning about life.
Truth and Tales has a blue light filter that protects kids’ sleep. The app turns it on after a certain hour, so the child isn’t exposed to blue light. Blue light might disturb melatonin production, the sleep hormone, and change kids’ sleep routine. This tool, allied to these kind of stories, results in a great alternative to be used before bedtime.
