BRAVE ROONEY is now listed on iTunes in “What’s Hot” in books!
Written by three-time EMMY nominated Kid’s TV writer, Gerry Renert, “Brave Rooney” comes with over fifty interactive features and animations for the iPad or iPhone. The BRAVE ROONEY Kids App/Book is a great way to build children’s self esteem while helping them with the ever-present challenge of “fitting in.” Brave Rooney is the story of an ordinary kid – Rooney – who ends up at Captain Majestic Memorial School, an elementary school for superheroes, and shows everybody what it takes to be REALLY brave!
The author , Gerry Renert, says “To me, BRAVE ROONEY strikes a responsive chord about kid’s worship of superheroes and also the important emotion a child feels about the need to “fit in,” which is a crucial part of the first months of starting school or any time children feel like outsiders.”
BRAVE ROONEY is receiving the highest praises and has even made the iTunes “What’s Hot” list! It makes a great educational fun gift for any child and you can even enjoy reading it with them!
“An amusing, cleverly told story that plays off the glut of superheroes in pop culture benefits tremendously from an app design that’s just as fun and engaging.”- Kirkus Reviews
“…the superheroes-in-training learn that bravery comes in all forms. The app has “Read to Me” and “I Can Read” options as well as others for page turns, interactive features, music, volume, and text language (English or Chinese).” -School Library Journal
“Rooney feels inadequate next to his superhero classmates, but when the entire school is given an assignment that leaves them shaking in their superhero socks, it’s Rooney who shows a different kind of strength and becomes a hero in his own right. Three-time EMMY-nominated kids’ TV writer Renert narrates, and the book’s beautiful, bright, detailed illustrations are brought to life… Brave Rooney is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch” -Parenthood.com
