Childnet International’s 'Digiduck's Big Decision' is a charming, educational e-safety story for children aged 3-7 and this has been turned into a fun, interactive app by Internet Matters working with Childnet. You can download the app for free and enjoy it with your child. Narrated by singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor and her mum the former Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis, the story teaches children the importance of being a good online friend and is a great conversation starter for parents to raise the issue of internet safety and being a good online citizen from an early age.
Help arrives just in time for Digiduck when he's faced with a difficult decision. Follow Digiduck and his friends in this story of friendship and responsibility online. Children can read the story, follow the narration and help bring the illustrations to life by interacting with the app and creating fun actions and animal noises. The app then allows them to take a quick quiz to sum up what they’ve learned through the story. Parents can also learn more about keeping their children safe online with access to the Internet Matters website through the app.

Fantastic illustrations with a story aiming to teach children how to be responsible online - it's unlike anything else I have come across. There are lots of interactive elements for children to explore which kept my daughter entertained.
