About CAppTivated Kids

Thanks for visiting CAppTivated Kids!

I’m a writer and mum based in the UK with two children, Mr Tall and Little Miss Chatterbox. I love to write for children, focusing on picture books, and am represented by the Anne Clark Literary Agency.

I also love exploring kids’ apps with my family on the iPad 2, both books and games. We enjoy entertaining, stimulating apps which tell us something about the world around us, develop creativity and promote a love of stories and learning.

***I am no longer updating CAppTivated Kids*** but am leaving up previous reviews as I still love these apps! The aim of the blog was to focus on quality not quantity. All the reviews were completely unbiased and based on our use of these books and games in family life.  I was delighted to be on the judging panel for the Book App category of the 2012 and 2013 Cybils awards. The majority of apps we reviewed were paid for from my own pocket, downloaded free when on a public promotion, or won in a competition. On occasion we did accept codes from developers but I always mentioned in a review if this was the case.
