Berlitz Summer Camp
by Julie Kertes
Brave Rooney by Gerry Renert; Ages 4 to 8; $2.99; available at iTunes
I was that kid who was always picked last for the dodge ball or Red Rover game, and that same feeling of low self-worth and embarrassment returned recently, when I was picked last during an all-mom boot camp class! Kids of all ages, despite their ranking on the playground or sports field, can relate to Gerry Renert’s inspiring e-book about Captain Majestic Memorial School, where every kid is a superhero – except the new kid, Rooney. 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 by Barry Gott. Brave Rooney is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, has more than 50 interactive features and animations and comes in two languages: English text/narration and Chinese text/narration.
