Felt Board - Mother Goose on the Loose is a nursery rhyme flannel board app designed for young children to use together with parents and caregivers. Children can move felt pieces, sing, and tap along with popular nursery rhymes and songs.

Based on the award-winning early literacy program, Mother Goose on the Loose, and developed by the creators of the original Felt Board app, Felt Board - Mother Goose on the Loose can be used by parents and children at home, in early childhood programs, and by librarians as a supplement to the Mother Goose on the Loose parent-toddler program.

Help Little Bo Peep find her lost sheep and dance them around the screen together in time to the music. Guide Jack and Jill up and down the hill and march with Grand Old Duke of York. Sound effect buttons like rhythm sticks, rattles and a rain stick are included for young children to interact with songs and rhymes as they are played.

Songs and rhymes include: Old Mother Goose, Goosey Goosey Gander, Jack and Jill, Jack Be Nimble, 2 Little Monkeys, 5 Fat Sausages, Humpty Dumpty, Little Bo Peep, Little Miss Muffet, Hickory Dickory Dock, Eency Weency Spider, Row Row Row Your Boat, and more.

A special press-and-hold button (picture of parent and child at the top) offers access to more information about Mother Goose on the Loose, Tips for Parents using the app with children, and Tips For Librarians incorporating the apps into a Mother Goose on the Loose Program. You will also find links to other apps by Software Smoothie. To access this information, press down and hold the parent / child icon without releasing until the page opens. In this way, young children will not unintentionally exit the app.

Parents and their children can choose from characters from the tab on the left, and place them on the screen, or move them around as they would in their nursery rhyme... This is wonderful app for parents to introduce to their children for working on speech, fine motor, object labels, and so much more." - Angie Gorz, Parent, AppyMall

A 21st Century learning gem!

This modern day felt board with a Mother Goose theme is a must have for those educating young children. Preschools, early childhood learning environments, special needs programs, and parents of youngsters will love this app. Mother Goose favorites are all wrapped up into this wonderful app. I love that parents and educators alike can enjoy this app along with children. Sing songs, tap along with fun musical instruments, visually experience concepts like up/down with the felt board pieces and corresponding rhyme. It is an excellent and well thought out app that is sure to be pleasing to any user! Software Smoothie can pat themselves on the back for another outstanding app that brings some literature history to our modern day technology! actbyjackiebryla

My kids love Mother Goose and had a great time playing with the felt pieces. They laid them out like the stories and came up with some new ones. Great for imaginative play! Will check out the other felt apps.
