Cyndie Sebourn of Sascyn Publishing has done a wonderful job in creating a fun and educational app in Smarty Britches Nouns .  She has designed an app that makes learning about NOUNS quite entertaining.  No small feat when you think this subject matter can sometimes be tedious to learn by youngsters.  My six year old is playing with the app right at this moment as I write this review – she particularly likes the scenes with the family in the living room where dad is playing a Rock-n-Roll song on his guitar.  Are you intrigued yet?

The app centers around Nouns and the different types of nouns.  We learn the definition of a noun and throughout the story are given examples of people, animal, idea and place nouns.  These lessons are set in a fun story to keep the little ones entertained.  We start in the bedroom of a cute Southern boy whose lighthouse toy lights up and makes a very realistic boom noise with an explanation that this is a thing noun.  These clever additions can be seen throughout Smarty Britches Nouns. 

You know you are getting a quality and tested educational app as Ms. Sebourn is a National Board Certified Teacher with over 25 years teaching experience!  It is a unique story that introduces one to the Southern way of living and talking – pretty cool addition you don’t see in other apps that make this a multi-dimensional educational app!  It reached #4 in iTunes in the educational apps – congrats to Ms. Sebourn!

A young boy with a pair of colorful pants he calls his 'smarty britches', takes readers on a tour of his hometown in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. This colorful learning adventure is a series of scenes from a young boy's rural life in the southern United States. He names each of the things he loves in his environment, teaching young learners about nouns along the way. Discover the People, Animals, Things, Places & Ideas that make up a child's world in this story app.

Nice features include a page guide (with game pages), instructions and lots of educational enhancements. Text highlighting is phrase-by-phrase, and while word-by-word would be ideal, this is a nice way to keep young readers following along. Page turning is solid, with arrows in the form of turned corners at the top of each page. The font is also stylized, but still easy to read. Nice narration has an added plus - it must finish before any interactions can be triggered. There are also six games/extras, included within the story's pages. They include finding hidden 'animal' nouns, identifying 'people' nouns and a light bulb that shows words for 'idea' nouns.

The illustrations are all nicely detailed with light animation on some pages, including the ability to turn the light on and off in the boy's bedroom. I would also suggest adding something to the set up of the story about the role of nouns in sentence construction for children not yet familiar with 'parts of speech'. This can also be achieved by using the series of curriculum ideas from creator (and teacher) Cyndie Sebourn. I really liked these common core activities and the obvious care shown in the construction of this app. These materials are online & free, but it would be great to have them added into the book itself.
