Apple is currently promoting interactive children's storybook Green Riding Hood as its Free App of the Week on the iOS App Store. Notable for its hand-drawn artwork, the app by Bobaka introduces kids of ages 5 and under to a healthy lifestyle in a cheery spin-off of the original folk tale.

The "organic fairytale" revolves around the bucolic daily life and escapades of a little girl, her grandma, a host of cute-looking animal friends, and a hungry wolf, but parents can rest assured, no-one gets eaten. Apple's App Store editors have this to say:

Recasting Grandma as an herbal tea-sipping yoga teacher is just one of the fun ways this gorgeous storybook encourages kids to develop healthy habits. (You'll love Bobaka's take on the big, not-so-bad Wolf, too.) We're having a ball exploring each interactive page, and the app's tasty vegetarian recipes make great projects for the whole family.

Alongside the friendly narrative elements and grandma's cookbook, Green Riding Hood features a series of mini games to keep kids engaged and a voiceover by Scottish actor Alistair Findlay, known for roles in such movies as Highlander and In the Name of the Father, as well as for narration in the acclaimed Nighty Night HD series of kids' apps.


Usually $2.99, Green Riding Hood supports multiple languages and is currently a free download for iPhone and iPad available on the App Store. [Direct Link]

I heard it said that the lottery is a tax on people who cannot do math. In the same vein, organic is the tax on people that cannot do chemistry.

Definitely downloading it - my kids love interactive story books.

Do you know how many glyceraldehyde, oleic, linoleic, and linolenic acids, not to mention galacturonic acid you're ingesting in your "organic" diet?

So eating things grown in chemicals is exactly the same as those that are not? I don't care what the chemistry says one sounds like a lot better of an idea than the other
Ummm everything is made of chemicals.

These interactive books reminds me of the old days of CD-ROMs and using Macromedia Director.
Not that different except new programs and everything is on a tablet/phone instead of a 17" CRT montior!
