Sid The Science Kid Storybook App 

If you have a “Sid the Science Kid” fan in your house, we have exciting news! PBS Kids has announced that their new storybook app, based on the animated preschool series from the Jim Henson Company, is now available for download in the iTunes store for the iPad, iPhone and iPod

Priced at $3.99 for an iPad app and $2.99 for the iPhone and iPod apps, “Sid the Science Kid Read and Play” features two storybooks – “The Troule with Germs” and “What’s That Smell?,” along with jokes, games, sing-along music videos, coloring pages and more. All activities are designed to encourage and develop an early love of science exploration.

The “Side the Science Kid Read & Play App” features:
  • Sing-Along Music Videos
  • Coloring Book 
  • Sticker Book
  • “Spot the Difference” Interactive Game
  • “I Sense” Interactive Game
  • Two Storybooks
The first storybook, “The Trouble with Germs,” invites kids to follow along as Sid discovers why he has to wash his hands to get rid of germs. While Sid can’t see them, his mom shows him a picture through a powerful microscope to explain that those itty-bitty things do exist and can make him sick.

The second, “What’s That Smell,” brings kids along for the journey as Sid finds out that smells, while invisible, are molecules that can pass through the air even without wind. That’s what allows him to smell his dad’s favorite pancakes, flowers and even his baby brother Zeke’s diaper (ewwww!).
