Get Creative, Be Happy

If kids are part of your life, you probably already know the work of Peter H. Reynolds. Peter’s simple, charming books — Ish, The Dot, and Someday – encourage kids to be creative by teaching that what they make, “doesn’t have to be perfect, only perfect-ish.” His books are bestsellers and a favorite among kids, parents, and teachers alike.

Peter’s talent isn’t confined to the written word. He and his twin brother, Paul, co-own an educational software company called FableVision. Their most recent creation? A program called Animation-ish.

The program allows kids to indulge in “screen time” in a safe and fun way. (No advertisements or violent content – hooray!) The easy-to-use software lets kids make their own animated movies, greeting cards, websites, and presentations. The program is available to download, so you can buy it on a rainy day and get designing before the chorus of “I’m bored” reaches a deafening roar.

The program is packed full of more than 50 video tutorials and quick tips. Our 10-year-old tester was up and running in minutes – allowing mom some time for her own creative pursuits.

Cool Software + Happy Kids = Something Close to Perfect-ish. And that’s plenty good enough.
