Getting back to simple basic guidelines for life. What an amazing world we will have when all kids know from the beginning about the lessons in this app.
As an extra gift, this book provides support for reading readiness with highlighted text as it is spoken. It also provides a source to open a dialogue, an opportunity for a discussion about all of the wonderful lessons of the book app. It is another opportunity to remind kids that they make a difference – one kid at a time. There is so much more to the app than the videos below.
This is a great app for preschool and elementary teachers!

What was the initial inspiration for My Friend Isabelle?
My Friend Isabelle was one of the very first picture book apps published by PicPocket Books. The print version of the book was originally published by Woodbine House, a publisher specializing in books and resources for families and teachers of kids with special needs.
What is your favorite aspect of the app?
We love the poignant story of the two friends who play and explore and celebrate their differences just by being kids who are open to connecting with the world and open to love. The story is written in a simple and straightforward voice that is very inclusive and accepting.
Is there anything else you would like to say to our readers?
Have you heard of the natural juice sodas called IZZE that are sold in Starbucks, Whole Foods Markets, and other natural markets? They are actually named after Isabelle in My Friend Isabelle! Her parents were the inventors of the drinks and co-founders of the company (although it was bought by Pepsico in 2006). ~ Lynette
