While I hope not to use technology as a pacifier (too much), I’m not opposed to it in small doses (and on long flights)–especially if it exposes kids to art. A friend turned me onto the sweet worlds-in-miniature of Peekaboo Forest with illustrations by Charley Harper and Peekaboo Barn apps. Bright, charming graphics that introduce in English or Spanish all sorts of animals and the sounds that they make. It’s perfect for the under three set. Expect to hear squeals of delight upon download.
