“Brainy Fables is the first series of book apps for children 4-7 aimed at developing creative thinking through storytelling
Brainy Fables is the first series of apps for kids aged 4-7 aimed at developing children’s creative thinking through storytelling, games and karaoke songs.
Five (5) Brainy Fables’ characters will guide children through the world of life skills and abilities such as: creative thinking, reaching “to the stars”, believing in yourself, problem solving, overcoming fear, capacity to take action and trying one’s best.
By reading, playing, singing, and talking about the challenges of Marcelo, Mirta and all the great Brainy Fables characters, children will have an opportunity to learn and practice English/Spanish language while discovering valuable lessons.
Each Premium app includes an interactive fable, two mini games and an original karaoke song and video with our Brainy Fables’ friends as the leading characters. Each of those elements will help parents and teachers bring positive messages into story time in a fun environment. “Night time, we are tired and we want our children to go to bed”, says author Franco Soldi, “but, what better way to do so than by having a nice and enriching conversation with our children with the help of one of our Brainy characters?”
Brainy Fables’ adventures have been lived up with music specifically created for each character. Rock, pop, country, salsa fusion or ethnic pop music is the vehicle for children to enjoy and learn in an entertaining atmosphere.
Every fable offers charming illustrations, animation and various features that enhance the reading experience – narrated or read myself options, hidden sounds and interactions, a summary of the story’s lesson, coloring pages, the ability for children to write and save their own ending to the story and a page for parents & teachers to help discuss the story’s message for children.
Brainy Fables are available in the iTunes Store and in Google Play and include Horacio the piglet, Mirta the super fly, Uxmal and the pyramid challenge, Marcelo the fox and Matias the rebellious chick.

When I started watching this video, I did not totally support her premise, by the end, I did. I encourage you to watch with an open mind and think about it. Educators tend to start with what “WE” want learners to know. Too often, “WE” are not as concerned with how they experience the process. Games can not get away with such an oversight. If they tried to ignore the player experience, in the same way that we educators – too often – ignore the learner experience they would FAIL! Perhaps this is part of the reason why so many teachers and schools fail their students.
