You Can Count on Blue Dog: Blue Dog 123


Publisher/Developer: Louisiana Digital Gaming Initiative/Academy of Interactive Entertainment
Available: January 12, 2011
Price: Free




This IPad app is a fun way for children to learn counting while enjoying the fabulous Blue Dog artwork of George Rodrigue. Each page displays a different piece of George's original art with countable objects. Through touch the objects can be counted in any order and children hear pronunciation plus see the number displayed. Randomly chosen numbers of objects in many pages makes this app more interesting to re-read and the beautiful art, combined with the story of Blue Dog's adventures, makes learning to count lots of fun!


George Rodrigue is a Cajun artist, author, and creator of the Blue Dog series, which includes Why Is Blue Dog Blue(Stewart, Tabori & Chang) and Are You Blue Dog’s Friend? (Abrams Books for Young Readers).
