The Legend of Momotaro

Ghost Hand Games Legend of Momotaro

Long, long ago...

Saratoga-based Ghost Hand Games has released an interactive storybook for the iPad called The Legend of Momotaro. From the description (link added):

The famous legend of Momotaro is brought to life with beautiful handcrafted illustrations, animations and narration. Ten panoramic scenes tell the classic Japanese story of an old man and an old woman who's only wish is to have a child. The gods grant their wish in a most surprising way!
As the story of Momotaro unfolds find the hidden interactive elements in each scene to learn about the Japanese culture and language. Watch and listen as subtle animations, authentic narration and sound tell a story of bravery and friendship.

As with Ghost Hand's other games, Momotaro looks great. There are a few more screenshots after the jump.

The storybook app is available for the iPad and iPad mini. It's $3.99

My daughter just started private swim lessons at Ciccotti Center in Colonie. She has only been to two but so far she loves it. They also seem to be flexible with scheduling for the private lessons - doesn't need to be at a set day and time each week.
