One of the biggest hurdles when teaching the arts to children is finding a way to make the classics, such as Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, relevant to younger kids. This musical storybook app, narrated by Alice Cooper, accomplishes this beautifully in a way that both parents and kids will love.
Set in modern-day Los Angeles, the newly orphaned Peter comes over from Russia to live with his grandpa. Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood begins with the wolf’s escape from the local zoo. To capture the wolf, Peter must build a robot, maneuver his way through a thrilling helicopter chase, and manage some hilarious encounters with several adorably quirky animals. Even though this app has a storyline all its own, it’s still true to the classical music and it makes it fun for kids.
