First Day of School by Appracadabra

Taking a little side-step from what I usually post about, but still relevant I believe due to the extremely nice graphics, this application from Appracadabra is worth a look:

‘How many days until I have to go to school?’ - with the First Day of School Countdown app by Appracadabra you can help kids keep track of time and prepare for this big event. Count down from day seven by marking off the days in a fun loving way. Watch a little bird getting ready for her first day assisted by a cute monkey and a helpful giraffe. Take a moment each day to talk about going to school - and enjoy a little surprise on the big day itself.
You may enjoy this trailor which gives a better idea of what to expect:

‘First Day of School Countdown’ is created by Dutch illustrator and mom Caroline Ellerbeck of Homemade Happiness. This children’s app is designed especially for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch and will be available on the App Store, in July 2012 in 20 different languages. Visit the Appracadabra website to see more fun apps for kids.

Thanks to Appracadabra for allowing Kitty as a Picture Illustration and Surface Design Blog permission to publish these images.
