bigbirdBig Bird’s Words is our Recommended Children’s App of the Week.

The $.99 educational app teaches kids about about words in the world around them. The app encourages kids to hunt for words in everyday environments that Big Bird visits. Here is more about it from iTunes:

Big Bird knows something special that he wants to share with your child: Words are all around you! And he’s made a wonderful Word-o-Scope to help you look for them in the real world – right on your mobile phone!

The educational team at Sesame Street created Big Bird’s Words especially for little learners, to help build and expand their vocabulary. It’s all about getting kids excited about learning to recognize and read written text, as they use Big Bird’s scope to look for a special group of high-interest, themed words.
