Don't Let the Pigeon Run this App!

I wish it was cheaper so I could purchase the app for our 30 class iPod Touches! 

My students absolutely love Mo Willems' Pigeon Books so this app got them extra PUMPED UP! It's so cute! We used the app (whole group) on our Apple TV. Students then used the app on their own on our iPad Minis. Two students told me that they purchased it for their own iPods and iPads at home!
Description from iTunes:
Three-time Caldecott Honoree Mo Willems brings the Pigeon to the digital screen with this original, feature-rich, animated app.

“Don’t Let the Pigeon Run This App!” lets you create your own Pigeon stories with your pal, Mo Willems. Just follow as the Bus Driver asks you for your ideas—then shake the Pigeon. Your story is ready! Sit back and enjoy the show. Once you’re finished, try it again…and again. You can make as many silly stories as you want.

This fully animated app includes hilarious shake-and-play technology, customized voice integration, and other exciting interactive features. Plus, you can draw the Pigeon with Mo!

Note: If you have a second- or third-generation iPod Touch, be sure to use earphones with a built-in microphone (like the ones that came with your device) to enjoy all the great features of this app!

I loved the "How to Draw the Pigeon" drawing lesson! 
The App has inspired us to write on our own Pigeon stories. What fun!
